Unreal Engine is at the forefront of the rapidly evolving field of virtual production and in-camera VFX (ICVFX) that continues to change nearly every aspect of the media production process. We recently shared here at ProVideo Coalition how the exciting new workflows and tools it offers are influenced by input from leading filmmakers who are pushing the limits of virtual production today.
Unreal Engine 4.27 is currently available in Preview. This new version represents an evolutionary leap forward, delivering whole new levels of creative freedom. In fact, as Epic Games notes, “with the upcoming release of Unreal Engine 4.27, a raft of new features to improve ease-of-use, efficiency, and quality make these game-changing filmmaking techniques more accessible and practical than ever.
Now, paving the way for the release of the new version, Epic Games announces a free webinar under the title “The Next Step In Virtual Production”. Scheduled for Wednesday, August 25 it has two sessions – 9 AM EDT | 2 PM BST and 2 PM EDT | 7 PM BST – so you can pick the one that suits you best.
