    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.
  • 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.
  • Real-time collaboration

    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.

    Multi-platform deployment

    Deploy a single Unreal Engine project across a vast array of platforms, from mobile devices and touchscreens, to 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, then display it on multiple LED or projection screens.
