Blender Foundation chairman Ton Roosendaal has reported that Epic games has donated $13.5K to the foundation. Alexander Paschall posted on the Unreal Engine Forum regarding the news:
“We are trying to get a solid pipeline for exporting from Blender to UE4. So far things are going really well and we hope to see some cool stuff in the near future”.
The workflow works pretty well currently for most content but a formal pipeline blessed by Epic would be more than welcomed.
