Latest Unreal Engine version for PC offers new features and enhancements for creators across all industries. In‑camera VFX goes next level with a slew of efficiency, quality, and ease-of-use improvements to the virtual production toolset, while other highlights include path tracing for stunning final images, out-of-the-box access to Oodle and Bink, production-ready Pixel Streaming, and much more. Enjoy!
A world-class toolset and accessible workflows empower developers to quickly iterate on ideas and see immediate results without touching a line of code, while full source code access gives everyone in the Unreal Engine for Windows community the freedom to modify and extend engine features.
Features and Highlights
Leading the Way in Virtual Reality
There are no shortcuts o creating immersive experiences that are believable to the human mind. VR requires complex scenes rendered at very high framerates. Because the app is designed for demanding applications such as AAA games, filmmaking and photoreal visualization, it meets these requirements and provides a solid foundation to build content on all VR platforms - from PC to console to mobile.
Forward Renderer: Push The Limits
In creating Robo Recall, Epic developed a rendering solution specific to VR. The Forward Renderer supports high-quality lighting features, Multisample Anti-Aliasing (MSAA), and instanced stereo rendering to produce crisp, detailed images at 90 FPS.
Build VR In VR
Reach out, grab, and manipulate objects with the power of UnrealEngine for PC at your fingertips. The full Unreal editor runs in VR with advanced motion controls so that you can build in a “what-you-see-is-what-you-get” environment. It’s the most robust, feature-complete, and capable VR development solution in the world.
Unreal is a pure C++ engine designed for high performance. Its advanced CPU/GPU profiling tools and flexible renderer equips developers to efficiently achieve quality VR experiences.
FBX, USD, and Alembic support
Connect to media production pipelines, with support for industry standards like FBX, USD, and Alembic. First-class USD support enables users to collaborate better with team members and work in parallel. It can read a USD file from anywhere on disk without a time-consuming full import, and write back changes to it as overrides; reloading the USD payload instantly updates changes made by other users upstream
Integrate the engine into your pipeline and automate your workflows with full support for the industry standard Python scripting in the Unreal Editor. You can construct asset management pipelines, automate data preparation workflows, procedurally lay out content in a level, and create custom UIs to control the Unreal Editor.
The Unreal Editor
The app includes the Unreal Editor, an integrated development environment available on Linux, MacOS, and Windows for content authoring and game level development. With support for Multi-User Editing, artists, designers, and developers can simultaneously make changes to the same the project in a safe and reliable way, while the ability to run the full Unreal Editor in VR mode means you can build in a WYSIWYG environment.
Character animation tools
Completely customize characters and craft believable movement with Unreal Engine’s mesh and animation editing tools, which include powerful features such as state machines, blend spaces, forward and inverse kinematics, physics-driven animation for ragdoll effects, and the ability to preview animation on the fly. A scriptable rigging system offers ways to achieve procedural rigging, animating in engine, or setting up custom retargeting or full-body IK solutions.
Photoreal rasterizing and ray tracing in real time
Achieve Hollywood-quality visuals out of the box with Unreal Engine’s physically-based rasterizer and ray tracer. Selectively choose to ray trace reflections, shadows, translucency, ambient occlusion, image-based lighting, and global illumination, while continuing to rasterize others passes to get subtle, accurate effects at the performance you need. Effects include dynamic soft shadows from area lights, and ray-traced light from HDRI skylights.
Niagara particles and visual effects
Create film-quality levels of VFX polish in real time for effects such as fire, smoke, dust, and water with completely customizable particle systems in the built-in Niagara visual effects editor. Impact your scene with particle lights; create complex particle motion with vector fields; author effects such as flocking and chains with particle-to-particle communication; and use the audio waveform data interface to have particles react to music or other audio sources.
