More Unreal Engine 4 Brilliance- Visual Effects

Zak Parish and Tim Elek talk about some breakdown shots from the Infiltrator Unreal Engine 4 tech demo. The complexity of the effects in the world is amazing- for example bullet casings are being emitted from the guns, which are then fully lit and emit their own smoke  in real time as they fall..!

I would seriously love to work in this engine!

Thanks to Polygon for showing me this video.

There is a breakdown of some of the techniques used in Jorge Jimenez’s blog.
