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"

Sorry if that seems to be a dumb question but, where do you see the said label? For instance, there is a character made by a third-party user (not epic), is it unreal-engine only? I can't find any kind of label on its page, does it mean it is ok to use it outside unreal engine? Thank you for clarifying.

The license (to my knowledge) states that epic provided content (ie. infinity blade, the mannequin, the animation pack etc) cannot be used outside of unreal engine. You are however allowed to use non-epic assets from the marketplace outside of unreal engine :) Hope this helps!

Marketplace and Learn tab assets that are labeled as being for use with Unreal Engine only can only be used with Unreal Engine; otherwise you can use outside of the engine. However, your resulting product is still a Product under the EULA. But linear non-interactive content, like a movie, is royalty free.
