Unreal Studio Experience Category

new category Unreal Engine Logo

Best real-time visual experience. Here, it’s all about the visual quality in a real-time setting. Minimum frame rate is 30 fps.

Judging will be based solely on the visual quality. We’ll be looking for photo-realism and professional understanding of lighting and material use. You can submit non-photoreal images too, but then we’ll be looking for something that stands out in it’s use of non-photo-real materials.

You can submit Sequencer-based videos, but you must also submit at least one interactive walkthrough video.
