    Why would I use Collaborate 2.0 if it's just Git LFS? Git LFS is free and there's already a free Git plugin on the Asset Store.

    I just don't see why I would pay for this service.

    Diffs on scene files?

    You can already do this. Scenes are text based now.

    Hi @apexsoftworks, thanks for the great question! Even though the underlying tech is similar to some git providers, Collaborate is different in a couple of ways:

    First is that Collaborate's original goal was to make version control easy for creators who weren't experts. We've gotten great feedback showing us that the UI does just that, but we've also gotten feedback that it's too simplistic for more advanced users. The new version of Collaborate will be designed around both use cases.

    The second is that we have a few unique features in the works that will set both the UX and the workflow apart from existing plugins and providers. We’re not quite ready to share details on that just yet, but we'll have more to share in the next few months.

    I like the concept of collobrate but even with latest for 2018.4 (package 1.2.16) I still need to learn GIT so I can setup the .collabignore file at root of project; so that it does not freeze my machine for 30 minutes every time I hibernate my computer. So maybe it is something as easy as a editor which lets you select which folders to sync/ignore.
