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"

Epic royalty


Few days ago a friend of mine asked me to edit a video for advertise one of is products.

I don't understand if the royalty is also put on videos which are not getting any incoming, but are used just for advertising other products .

And if there is, how does it work ? Is 5% from the incoming of his product ?

Thanks for the note. Happy to help.

There is no royalty on your use of Unreal Engine 4 for production of your friend's video. There is a 5% gross revenue royalty after the first $3,000.00 of revenue is collected royalty free per quarter on any form of monetization of your friend's game. The process by which your friend will report and pay the royalty is covered in the Unreal Engine 4 EULA and FAQs. You will find the FAQ here: https://www.unrealengine.com/faq

Hope this helps.

Best, -j

Thanks for the answer, but I think I didn't explain it properly I will create a trailer with unreal but the project is about a card game not made in unreal. Is there still royalty?

Hi davi211,

If you are talking about a physical card game and not a video game; There is no royalty to use UE4 to create a linear video trailer (like on YouTube) for a product.
