Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Using UE4 in a movie production

Am I allowed to use Unreal Engine 4 during a production of a movie or television show if it will be sold? Should I convince a film director pay 5% royalties from each movie ticket or DVD just because only I use it in a pipeline to make some effects or is there any other way to use the engine in a non-game related project?

Thanks!

There are no royalties for using UE4 in linear/non-interactive productions like movies or TV.

Then I would like ask a follow-up question: If you for an instance want to use meshes from Kite-Demo as background?

If that would be a whole different matter, what steps could I make to get permissions for that? If I make only make a short film just for fun and share on youtube versus making a serious film and want to go all commercially with the aid of UE4 and assets that comes with it.

I have lately felt that UE4 definitely has a bright future for film making.

Even if you use the sample assets, if your Product is linear/non-interactive, then it's still royalty free (and totally permitted under the EULA).
