Is This the Future of Unreal Engine 4?

Quote

The folks over at Dekogon Studios, a game art outsourcing studio, have published on their ArtStation account some Unreal Engine 4 renders to showcase their creative vision and technological mastering of Epic's acclaimed engine. Being one of the more commonly used game development engines due to its rendering quality, ease of use and pipeline flexibility, Unreal Engine is one of the benchmarks for visual quality in the gaming world. These renders from Dekogon Studios using the latest version of Unreal Engine and employing raytracing are absolutely beautiful and incredibly, richly detailed.

Not sure if this is news or not, but holy jesus that looks amazing! WOW! Just... wow... I mean, the fact this is created in a game engine is incredible (and I know they are used for this kind of stuff. What I would love to see, is it even possible to do this in real time? If not, what would it take to even pull this off? Absolutely blown away by this:

I mean they look epic, but if it isn't realtime it doesn't really mean much.

Definitely looks like some serious ray tracing, but a lot of these look "cinematic real". Especially the subway.

Are these real time renders? Unreal is capable of high quality non realtime rendering

the source is unsure of whether or not it's rendered in frames per second or seconds per frame:

While we don't know how many frames per second a modern graphics card could generate at this level of detail (or if it would take seconds to generate a single frame)

Yeah. It's "the other market" that Unreal markets towards: Architectural Visualization.

At the very least, to see a Pixar or Disney animated movie from this would be hella cool.

to be honest i scrolled past the intro and didn't realize the photo's are from a game engine. i thought they were actual pictures taken with a camera.

The engine really has nothing to do with this.

 

Static ray traced renders are *The* most common thing out there (Think IKEA catalog)

 

Not to say this isin't impressive. Lots of hours amazing textures, effects likely added in post...

Just remember, the new ampere architecture is slated to be released soon. If this is done in real-time it may be possible with them, since it's speculated to have an increase in RT and Tensor density.

I'd like to see a Pixar level RenderMan game.

@Pickles - Lord of the Jar Why did you use photos in the topic? I would of expected some rendered images.

I hate you. XD

Kind of already done.

Oats Studios (Neill Blomkamp) did at least all Adam episodes with Unity3D. I don't know did they manage to do it in realtime or did they rig the game engine to render frame by frame with more "advanced" rendering settings but all mocap was done with Unity3D+OptiCap and all scenes were build in Unity3D (these can be seen in their behind the scenes video where they even use realtime output during mocap where they put some character model, most likely low-poly rigging model, on the actor to see the movements on the character through tracked in-game "camera").

I haven't heard same done with Unreal but I can't see many reasons why it couldn't be done. And reasons why it couldn't are mostly just what technologies from movie industry (like the OptiCap) can be bend to work with Unreal and what are the limits of the Unreal, like can you load the ultra-high-poly models used in final renders into it or is there some internal engine memory limits or other that would prevent using huge models in it (for example the Zygote hires model used in rendering is 6.5GB OBJ-file accompanied by over 150MB MAT-file, even opening it in 3Ds Max or Blender is quite a job).

Looks nice but how good a game looks isn't as important as gameplay so ultimately doesn't matter. Maybe for casual single player games.

it still looks a lot cleaner than real life which is always the giveaway , they never dirty stuff up enough. Or a lot of object get duplicated like chairs and none are unique which is another giveaway.

Yeah, I could tell instantly that those were just renders. High-quality renders, but definitely instantly recognizable as ones.

People often confuse artwork with engine. One is not connected with the other. Sure engine helps you make effects older ones didn't, but that didn't stop companies. For example Dark Engine used in Thief and System Shock 2 games was known to fake bump mapping effect before it was even a thing and done in hardware (by creating a shaded effect of recessed or expanded surface features on flat 2D textures). It's why those games look way better even today compared to some that use classic flat textures without fake bump mapping effect. And by using this fakery on object edges, they also give perception they are smoother despite low polygon count. In fact you can often use artistic solutions to solve engine shortcomings.

Why not just use software like Blender, 3dsmax, Maya etc.?
