UNREAL ENGINE 5 LAUNCH
This is arguably the best thing that has happened in the industry in recent times.
The release of this version of Epic Game's unreal engine is quite literally a "game changer" and it puts high end game development in the hands of every game developer, enthusiast, and Film maker for absolutely FREE
The 3 main technologies that drive this iteration of the engine are: Lumen, Nanite, Niagara
Lumen allows for some drastically optimised version of software based raytracing.
Nanite allows for high density (Limitless) 3d mesh integration and optimisation.
Niagara allows for high quality realtime volumetric voxel based particle system integration
These technologies present a major leap in the way films and games are developed
