Ted Mebratu has stress-tested Lumen in UE5 using NVIDIA's RTXDI.
According to the author, the project's goal was to stress-test Lumen and see how if fares when combined with RTXDI. "I obviously took it to the extreme in this scene and added [hundreds of lights] to see how far I can take it before I hit a limit. Which turned out to be really far," commented the creator.
If the environment itself seems familiar to you, it's because it is. Besides RTXDI and UE5, Ted also utilized Rainy Neon Streets, a highly detailed cyberpunk-style environment created by the renowned Environment Artist Maarten Hof using Blender, Substance 3D software, and Unreal Engine 5.
