Render Targets

Using Render Targets in Unreal Engine 4.


Render targets are used quite extensively throughout Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) for a wide variety of different tasks. From storing the various buffers that are needed for a deferred renderer to helping display various complex effects like the ripples that happen when you throw an object into a pool of water, render targets can be leveraged to perform all kinds of interesting and useful effects. In the following set of documents, we will take a look at how to use and manipulate render targets inside of UE4.

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.
