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"

What other fees or legalities should I be aware of to use UE4 as an animation tool like SFM is?

I'm thinking of doing animation shorts in UE4 since it's a better engine. So far I haven't seen any question related to UE4 licensing for use in animation.

The license I've seen so far only covers game releases. If I did an animation short with UE4 and published it monetized on YouTube, what are my legal obligations to Epic?

It's the same for everything you produce using UE4. If you are monetizing the video then you pay 5% of the gross revenue.
