best programs for world generation?
Hello, I am just getting into unreal engine 4 again where as my last computer could not really run it that well. And I was just wondering what the best programs for making maps and terrain would be that are compatible with unreal engine 4.
While asking this I suppose I should ask as a generalization, what are some of the best programs to pair with unreal engine?

There is a wide variety of programs suitable for unreal. Just depends on how much time you can take to learn. For instance "world machine" can create some very nice terrains maps but its a pain to get into unreal. Unreal has worked on some very nice terrain editing tools worth looking into. As for other third party software. Xnormal, crazybump for making normal/heightmaps. Quixel suite or Allegorithmic substance for making materials, substance has a ue4 plugin that is easy to use. 3ds max, Maya, blender for 3d modeling, uv unwrapping and rigging. Photoshop or gimp for 2d image editing. Zbrush for highpoly sculpting. The are other various little programs but these mentioned are used by most and you will find many tutorials on YouTube to help you through each plus here on the answer hub is many people knowledgeable in integrating these programs into a workflow for unreal.
