Epic Games has just revealed a trailer for their next Unreal Engine. Their 2 main new features are Nanite and Lumen. They also made some changes to their audio system and to their fluid simulation.
With Nanite game developers can draw film quality models into a realtime rendered game, without optimizing or creating LODs. It can draw over a billion triangles of source geometry each frame, which Nanite can crunch down to 20 million of drawn triangles.
With Lumen you can dynamically draw global illumination without baking or light maps. Any light can move while still having bounce lighting. Lumen does not only react to moving light sources, but also changes in geometry.Tags: Epic games, Lumen, Nanite, unreal engine, Unreal engine 5
