Volume Texture

How to create and use Volume Textures in UE4.


Volume Textures are a special type of asset that assists with the storage and use of 3D volume information in a 2D Texture. Volume textures work by taking a 3D shape and slicing it into cross-sections which are then placed into a grid on a 2D Texture. If the sections on the 2D Texture are re-combined, the texture could then produce the entire volume of the original 3D model. Below you will find a collection of documentation that will go over how you can set up and use Volume Textures in your Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) projects.

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.
