DirectScene is a set of cinematic tools designed to help filmmakers in editing, animation, and rendering.
Until now, the software was only used inhouse by post-production studio Visiomedia Ltd.
With the open-source release of Unreal Engine
unrealengine on github
there now exists a solid platform to extend, which is not only useful for games, but also animated movies.
We are now in the process of porting the tools to the current version of Unreal Engine. UE 4.8 is the first version, which allows to extend the engine with plugins.
