Example of things that can be done with Definitive Painter

Definitive Painter is a 2D vector graphics library that allows you to draw 2D graphics based on vectors right in Unreal Engine. It is based on Skia by Google.

Definitive Painter extends the existing UMG system by adding new vector based widgets. Finally, you are no longer limited to drawing simple rectangles with textures. You can now draw circles, triangles, lines, paths that comprise intricate curves and even SVG images, all properly antialiased using MSAA. Your own imagination is your new limit when it comes to creating user interfaces in Unreal Engine.

The plugin supports gradients, noise generators, geometry-altering effects, many blend modes, animations, procedural shadows, mouse hit testing for any shape, and much more.

Everything is real-time, 100% vector and integrates seamlessly with UMG. Definitive Painter will draw a simple chart to be inserted into your existing GUI or the whole HUD for your project.

Because of its vector nature, you no longer need to switch between UE and your DCC tool in order to tune colors, widen contours, etc. You can do everything without the need to ever leave UE.
