About virtual production

Virtual production is a new production technique inspired by the gaming industry that has been adapted in recent years to the television and film industry. It allows crews - producers, directors and technicians - to preview complex scenes in a movie before filming (previs) and to have real-time rendering of visual effects directly in-camera on set. With a virtual production pipeline, technical and creative teams can streamline the entire process, make real-time decisions, reduce post-production efforts and cut production costs.

With virtual production poised to be one of the biggest technology disruptors of the visual medium, Unreal Engine has been at the forefront of virtual production since the first workflows began to emerge.

By combining CG, motion capture, and real-time rendering with traditional techniques, production teams are already discovering they can achieve the director’s vision faster than ever before, and this is only the beginning.
