When you want to excite someone or shorten the design cycle, immersive experiences are the way to go. With Unreal Engine, you can show customers every option in the catalog, take them on a VR test drive, or iterate on high-fidelity designs, all in the same place.
The latest version of Unreal Engine gives us a great opportunity to improve our content production processes to reduce time to market, generate more assets, and get visual consistency with an unified approach.

Digital cockpit development (HMI)
How can you differentiate your in-car experience from the competition? With Unreal Engine, you can design the type of HMI, infotainment, or digital cockpit experience that takes them where they want to go—in style.
One source of truth
Store all of your digital reference models in one place, so as you work through rapid virtual prototyping, collaborative design reviews, HMI testing, ergonomic studies, and configurators, everything is seconds away.

Push the limits, right away
Achieve visuals out of the box that are as real as it gets. In Unreal Engine, real-time ray tracing delivers true reflections, dynamic soft shadows, global illumination, and HDR image-based lighting—so it’s easier than ever to create the type of awe-inspiring digital showrooms, configurators, and videos that sell your product before you even say a word.
Quickly and easily convert CAD data from many sources at high fidelity, and then iterate to your heart’s content with Datasmith’s nondestructive re-import feature. Automate optimization processes with Python scripting, and easily create configurators with the Variant Manager and Blueprint visual scripting.
Multi-user collaboration on any device
Build and review your design alone, or with others, at human scale. With support for multi-user VR collaboration, participants can grab and manipulate objects from anywhere in the world, helping everyone make design changes in context.
Your data, your choice
Create immersive experiences; render photorealistic marketing stills and videos; or deliver interactive product configurators to customers anywhere in the world—the sky's the limit. And with access to WebGL/GLTF exporting, as well as the full source code, you can even create custom apps we haven't even thought of yet.
With Unreal Engine, there’s no waiting for an engineer. Designers can incorporate everything themselves using HMI widgets and simulators that make it easy to rapidly iterate/explore what a design will actually look like in practice. Learn more in our HMI hub.
This course explains the look development process for Studio Lighting, looking at the assignment of IES light profiles, light panels for fill lighting and reflections, and how to create a turntable Blueprint.
