WildRover84 Posted July 4, 2022 Share Posted July 4, 2022 Hey guys and gals! I posted this on the discord but it might get lost there - so... Hey guys! Now that you are porting FS to UE5 I am curious about a few things relating to how you treat, translate or even enhance the 3D-Art and how that works out in practice. A good chance to get a little insight into how UE5 behaves - away from the hype-train on YT. 😉 @NodSaibot briefly answered a few things - thanks for that - but maybe the 3D-Artists can give a deeper insight. And sorry If i get a few things wrong or if they seem confusing. I do 3D and Modeling as a Motion-Designer but I know little about Game-Dev/Engines itself. 1. Nanite and it's impact on 3D-Resources Nanite was heavily advertised and with all things Internet I am a little sceptic about how that works out in practice. As I understand it Nanite handles environment "so well" that it frees up resources and you get a better draw-call budget. Is that right? If so: Does it free up so much that you can up poly-counts on models or give them higher resolution textures throughout? 2. "Re-Mastering" 3D Assets for UE5 Did the situation occur that you said to yourselves: "Well, we got more possibilities in implementing 3D-Art so we can up the quality!" What I mean by that is: Do you for example re-create props with higher a higher Poly-Count or just export them "less optimized"? 3. Lumen and it's GI I've seen a few examples and UE5's new lighting-engine personally strikes me as the most impressive feature. I just love good lighting. 🙂 How does lumen behave in practice? Does it feel more natural to work with or is it "just" and enhancment in lighting quality. 4. PBR-workflow FS was initially made with UE3 afaik. IIRC UE3 uses a Base/Spec/Gloss workflow and UE5 deffo uses Base/Rough/Metal. I don't know what you used for texturing (Subs Painter I guess). How do you handle the transition? If you did the textures with Painter, do you just export/convert them to the new workflow? How does it work for you? Are there any textures you might redo now - for different reasons? 5. Poly/Pixel If it's true that UE5 gives more performance would you rather use it on upping the Polys on a model or use higher resolution normal maps?
