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"

Royalty for hardware related devices

Hi, We are developing a human body scan/measurement and virtual try-on system. Our system is not a pure software but combined by 60% of hardware and about 40% of software. We are interested in using UE4 in our system to improve our front side rendering effects. In this case, if we reached the income line to pay the royalty fee, should we pay 5% of the software percentage or the entire equipment? Thanks very much!

Product Version: UE 4.10

This is a hardware and software bundle that you'd make multiples of and sell them?

The system would be sold as a bundle at this stage. However, the software and hardware are isolated and the software could be sold separately in later stage.

The technical EULA answer is that if they are bundled, the royalties applies to the price of the bundle. However, this may be resolveable with a custom license (depending on whether you qualify) or perhaps an understanding with our Finance team if you can sufficiently establish a separate price for the software. You can reach them through these instructions.

thanks very much for the detailed reply! As in a current amount of time software and hardware would be boundled, we may need to consider other engines. Frontal rendering is only one module of the system, 5% is too high for a single module..
