Working with Media

How to play audio and linear video in your projects, and how to integrate Unreal's rendered frames into virtual production and broadcast scenarios.


With Unreal Engine, you can integrate your pre-recorded media into your project seamlessly and share your rendered frames live or recorded. Use Unreal Engine's real-time rendering for shooting real-time visual effects, broadcasting on air or to tape, and rendering on complex arrangements of physical displays for live performances. With end-to-end color management and the ability to synchronize multiple media sources, Unreal can fit into the technical pipeline for any virtual production or live event.

The following sections contain information on the tools and workflows to make the most of media and rendered frames for your projects and audience.

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.
