Yo guys

Just a quick question, anyone here use Unity game engine for just doing CG movies please? I watched the blacksmith and Adam movies and was very impressed.

So anyone any experience using this software please? Can it render real time? Any users here please? And is it worth it to make CG movies?

Wow posted similar sort of question on Unity forums and it's not easy getting a clear answer lol
The people that have replied so far seem a little elitist......
Ok to add to this, unreal engine 4 for CG movies?

Never touched Unity before, but this was pretty interesting:

Haven't watched all of it, but this one looks interesting too:

The only potential downside I can see is that all of their techniques are designed so that they can render in real time.

There are easier ways of making CG films with traditional 3D software and Compositing Software like After Effects.

Your render times will be longer, but you also save a ton of time that you would have spent trying to problem solve like these guys did.

thanks for the reply.

I mainly use after effects, element 3d and blender but just been playing with unreal engine 4 and might bring a blender animation in there to render as UE4 seems pretty freaking nice!
just downloaded latest build and the real time rendering seems cool.
eevee will be out pretty soon I hope for blender and that has a lot of potential re real time rendering.
