Unreal Engine is a powerful and versatile game development platform used for creating high-quality video games, simulations, and visualizations. LightWave now provides a seamless real-time link between your creations and the Unreal Engine platform.

LightWave supports three powerful rendering systems: LightWave 3D’s internal CPU render engine, Octane's GPU render engine, and Unreal's real-time render engine. Benefit from Unreal’s Nanite for larger scenes and workflows, elevating the quality and speed of your rendering process.

Real-Time Link: Experience a seamless real-time connection between LightWave 3D and Unreal Engine. Changes made in LightWave 3D are instantly reflected in Unreal, ensuring a fluid and intuitive design process.

Effortless Transfer: With just a few clicks, transfer objects, instances, textures, animations, camera moves, and lights—all in real time.

Live Animation Previews: Animate in LightWave 3D and preview your animations in Unreal Engine in real time. This immediate feedback loop allows for quick adjustments before the final transfer, ensuring your animations are perfect.

Rapid Rigging and Animation Transfers: Send multiple rigged animations to Unreal in seconds and easily re-link rigs with a single click per rig. This efficiency is unmatched, making the LightWave to Unreal Engine bridge the fastest, most user-friendly linking system available.
