Weta Digital showcases a mind-blowing real-time animated short in Unreal Engine

Epic Games and Weta Digital have released an incredible real-time animated short, created in Unreal Engine using the new Hair & Fur Rendering and Simulation tool. This tech video showcases what modern-day GPUs are capable of when pushed to their limits.

Weta Digital used an NVIDIA GeForce RTX3090 in order to render this animated short in real-time. Now keep in mind that this animated short only features two animals and a simple environment. So yeah, don’t expect this kind of visuals in next-gen games anytime soon. Still, it’s really impressive witnessing this kind of real-time graphics.

Epic Games plans to add this new Hair & Fur Rendering and Simulation tool in Unreal Engine 4.26.
