Epic Games brings new tools to multiple industries
Over the last couple of years, the movie and television industry has begun to use the Unreal Engine. A great example of this use is the Disney+ television show The Mandalorian.
“Unreal Engine was running on four synchronized PCs to drive the pixels on the LED walls in real-time. At the same time, three Unreal operators could simultaneously manipulate the virtual scene, lighting, and effects on the walls.” From the Unreal Engine blog post.
Various short films have been made using the unreal engine as well. A collection of these short films can be found on the Rebelway VFX website, where they offer lessons on starting your VFX journey.
