Key Features

Fast, easy data import and optimization

Unreal Engine offers support for a host of DCC, CAD, and BIM formats for 3D assets, including 3ds Max, Cinema 4D, FBX, USD, SketchUp Pro, Rhino, Revit, Solidworks, Catia, and many more. Nondestructive reimporting lets you continue to iterate in your source package without losing downstream changes you’ve made in Unreal Engine. And with access to Python scripting, you can fully automate your data preparation tasks.

Creative real-time collaboration

Build and review your project alone or with others, with support for immersive multi-user collaboration. Reach out, grab, and manipulate objects in the full Unreal Editor running in VR to make changes in context. Bring participants together in interactive or immersive experiences that let them review designs as a team at high quality, no matter where they’re located—on desktop, on mobile, or in VR.

Multi-platform deployment

From a single Unreal Engine project, you can deploy your project to a vast array of platforms, from mobile devices to touchscreens, VR headsets, and CAVEs. Pixel Streaming can remotely deliver high-performance interactivity on any device with a web browser, while the nDisplay system enables you to render real-time content at any resolution, and to display it on multiple LED or projection screens. 

Blueprints: create without coding

With a node-based interface that’s friendly to artists and designers, Blueprint visual scripting lets you rapidly prototype and finalize interactive content without touching a line of code. Use Blueprints to build object behaviors and interactions, modify user interfaces, adjust input controls, and so much more. You can even visualize gameplay flow and inspect properties while testing your work using the powerful built-in debugger.

Get the world’s most open and advanced creation platform

No matter which licensing option you choose, there is only one Unreal Engine. With no need for additional plugins or purchases, Unreal Engine comes production-ready out of the box.
