ILIAD is a painting plugin with a dedicated interface to edit and create 2D textures directly in UE4. Express your art thanks to our powerful Blueprint-based brush engine and create brushes to make traditional tools (crayons, paintbrushes, grease pencils...) with specific value (symmetry on various axes, seamless results, etc.)


ILIAD can suit several purposes, such as :

• editing 2D textures used in materials on 3D assets (diffuse, specular, normal, etc.)

• creating 2D images like tile sets or sprites for 2D video games

• drawing sketches for storyboard or design

• making 2D animations

Video game, animation, architecture, automotive... ILIAD can be helpful for any industries!
