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 use UE4 for free to create applications that are not going to be released to the public?


I work for a multinational corporation called Applied Materials. We have many tools that have industrial applications and we are planning to use UE4 to create interactive experiences and simulations that we will be using strictly within our company circle. What are the licensing options that I have? Can we use it for free?


Product Version: UE 4.19

Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, and Applied Materials is a big enough corporation to have plenty of lawyers on staff. They should be the ones to give you the go ahead.


The UE4 engine should be able to be used for "free" from what you have stated. When the engine is being used, to generate income/profit, then there is a 5% royalty that is charged (which is very inexpensive, when you consider what your getting for 5%), on the revenue.

Hence if there is no revenue, there is no royalty to be paid.

But again, this is a question that you should really be asking the legal staff of AM to answer. To make sure that you are staying within corporate guidelines, etc.

Hope this helps.
