Unreal Engine 5 for Film Making

Unreal Engine is already being used for virtual sets, famously on productions such as the Mandalorian, but also increasingly on many others.

The truly game changing aspect of Unreal Engine, and the thing that now makes it much more of a threat to traditional filmmaking, is that its graphics are rendered in realtime.

Want to set your film in Morocco when you live in New Zealand? No problem. Want to stage a huge space battle with lots of frickin’ lasers? You got it!

Unreal Engine 5 is now available!

This Early Access build of Unreal Engine 5 is not production-ready, but this is where, for the first time, you can get your hands on Unreal 5 to try out the new features such as Nanite and Lumen

You will need a powerful PC to run it, as these systems are designed for next gen systems such as PS5.

There is also a demo project to download which showcases the new features. But be aware it is almost 100GB in size!
