The June 1st Unreal Engine Live Stream will focus on the long awaited Volumetric Fog feature this time around.
From an Unreal Engine Forum post by Alexander Paschall:
Daniel Wright joins the livestream once again, this time to talk about Volumetric Fog, a beautiful new rendering feature in 4.16. With Volumetric Fog, you can create incredible ambiance and mood in your environments using the new Volumetric Fog! Varying densities are supported so you can simulate clouds of dust or smoke flowing through light shafts, and any number of lights can affect the fog.
Here’s a crazy new feature in Unreal Engine 4.13. Procedural Mesh Slicing allows you to setup meshes that can be sliced up to bits during game play. Pretty cool stuff! This tutorial featuring Alexander Paschall and Ian Shaddon, shows you some of the tricks to get this done.
Unreal Engine 4.12 was officially released today even though UT has been using a pre-release version of 4.12 for quite a while. One of the big new features is the new Sequencer for real-time cinematics and cutscenes. If you’re using Matinee to make fly-throughs of your maps, you might want to take a look at the new features in Sequencer.
As usual, the full changelog is freakishly long. Go HERE for the full details.
Unreal Engine is now at version 4.10 with the usual massive change log. With UT now 2 revisions back, it will interesting to see if the team skips 4.9 altogether. Release information can be found HERE.
One of the new features is the Landscape Mirror Tool seen below. Instant outdoor, symmetric CTF!
Unreal Engine 4.8 was released today, and as usual, there is a massive amount of new and mind blowing additions. One thing that should find its way into the next UT build is the replay system with DVR-like functionality.
Outdoor scenes will take another leap with the new grass functionality. From the release notes: “The new grass system dynamically renders instanced grass and other ground clutter meshes on the landscape around the player”. Awesome!
Rippster (aka Eric Wilkinson) posted a tech demo of his work in the Unreal Engine forums and it is incredibly impressive. What is equally impressive is if you do a Google search on “Ragnosaur”. This thing has exploded everywhere!
