What is scene fusion?
Scene Fusion is a Unity™ and Unreal™ plugin that allows multiple team members to work together on a Unity™ Scene. While using Scene Fusion, all users can see the changes other users are making in real-time, allowing for an unprecedented level of collaboration. It provides a highly collaborative and team-oriented alternative to scene merging and scene division, and speeds up level development by 2-3x.
What do i use scene fusion for?
You use Scene Fusion to speed up scene building and work more collaboratively. Instead of having a single person work on a scene at a time, you can now enable multiple people to connect to a single scene which they edit together.
