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"

Can i make a virtual interactive walktrough to the web with Unreal?

Hello, I'm really new to all this gaming engines. Currently im working with only architectural visualization (by video) and i wanted to build something more interactive, so people could go into the house and do their own walktrough. But that interactivity needs to be on the web, is that possible with Unreal?

To add some additional light on this subject... at the moment you would only be able to use a WebGL-based presentation on a desktop browser or non-Apple device like Android. Despite Apple's claim of supporting open standards, in reality they only support what they feel like supporting, and at the moment WebGL is not one of them. So for example, if your client tried to visit a WebGL architectural visualization on the Web with say an iPad tablet, it wouldn't work. A Canvas 2D implementation would work, but not WebGL on an Apple tablet.

Also not every browser version supports WebGL either. So actual implementation requires a detection scheme. Here's a handy chart to let you know which browsers support WebGL http://caniuse.com/webgl

The UE4 source version steps for the WebGL export seems a bit rough at the moment, so if you can't get it to work then you might want to look into http://www.ambiera.com/coppercube/ I know some people are using it specifically for architectural visualization, and it reliably exports 3D environments out to WebGL.

Yes, you can build unreal for HTML5/WebGL

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/HTML5/index.html

But it experimental and atmost has only mobile GPU capatibilites (as WebGL is based on OpenGL ES)

Alternativly, you could use unreal to make videos and make them interactive somehow
