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.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
