Unreal Engine Live Stream – Volumetric Fog

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.

Watch the Twitch stream on the Unreal Engine Twitch channel at 2:00pm ET.

UE4 Lighting Techniques and Guides

Here’s a couple of new Unreal Engine 4 lighting guides using the latest engine version. There is significant coverage of shadow techniques in the second guide which I found useful.

Some of this stuff might be “expensive” processing-wise so keep in mind it might not be great for UT.  (Warning: These videos are really long…)

Unreal Engine 4.12 Released

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 4.8 Released!

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!

Go HERE for the full release notes.
