As more AAA studios such as Insomniac Games and industrial companies like Flokk introduce assisted creation workflows into their pipelines, Unity ArtEngine has become an essential tool to learn for advancing a career in real-time 3D.

ArtEngine helps artists accelerate the creation and scaling of high-quality materials. It works seamlessly with the Unity platform and is the perfect material authoring tool for a Unity Scene. 

To kick off the new school year, we’re offering students and educators a back-to-school discount of 55% per license. For a limited time, verified Unity Student and Educator plan users can get ArtEngine for less than $10 USD.

Making virtual things look real is hard. The human eye is trained to distinguish what’s real. That’s why most texture art fails to approach photography and video’s variation and emotional realism, especially when rendered into a dynamic environment such as a game or movie. High-fidelity graphics in video games, films, architecture, and manufacturing can make or break your experience.

Evermore industries and studios are adopting assisted creation workflows, and creators who already have this skillset and are familiar with the tools have the competitive edge.

Immersive material creation

Whether you’re just starting out on your RT3D learning path, or you’re teaching students to use Unity, you may have noticed that one of the most laborious and difficult processes when building a 3D environment is, well, the environment. If you want your project to look cutting edge, every tree, bush, floorboard, gravel path, could mean painstaking hours of work as you build it inch-by-inch.

With Unity ArtEngine, you can harness the power of AI to build photorealistic materials for immersive environments. This powerful tool helps you create intricately detailed materials by taking some of the heavy lifting out of cumbersome processes like up-resing, deblur, unwarping and more.
