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"

Question on royalties

Hi there! I am a 3D designer and was interested in the Enterprise version of this product to create designs for my clients at their request. I wanted to know if this is something I or they would have to pay royalties on. For instance, if I design a cabinet for a client of mine who is an interior designer and I take her vision and make it 3D for her to propose to her client and they pay me money for this design, will royalties need to be paid?

Thank you!

Based on your description, you will not owe royalties. You can review our Unreal Studio EULA here (https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/studio/eula).

Section 1(A)(b) is relevant to you:

b. Distribution to Clients - You may Distribute the Engine Technology incorporated in object code (such as an application in executable form) format only as an inseparable part of a Studio Product to a single third party for which you specifically developed the Studio Product in exchange for consultation fees or work-for-hire fees (including fees paid on a time and materials basis) (a “Client”).

UE wouldn't really be the best thing for that; it would be great for setting up a scene to visualize said cabinet in a room, but it's a game engine not modelling software.

I'll let Epic answer on the legal issues; it sounds like you're wanting to do architectural visualization (arcviz) so maybe look in the licensing agreement in those sections?
