Paper 2D in Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) is a sprite-based system for creating 2D and 2D/3D hybrid games entirely within the editor. At the core of Paper 2D are Sprites (which are a Texture Mapped Planar Mesh and associated Material). You can edit Sprites inside UE4 with the Sprite Editor and create sprite-based animations with Flipbooks (which animate a series of Sprites sequentially by using key frames and specifying a duration in frames to display them).

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
