Luma Plug-In for Unreal Engine 5 Released in Alpha

Powered by NeRFs, the plug-in enables you to produce incredible cinematic shots and experiences.

Software developer Luma AI has launched Luma Unreal Engine Plugin, a brand-new add-on for Unreal Engine 5 that brings fully volumetric Luma NeRFs to the engine for use in games, virtual production, traditional graphics content, and virtual reality experiences.

To get started, you'll need to download Luma's sample project and extract it, open it in Unreal Engine 5, download a Luma Field file from one of your captures, and drag the downloaded file into the Content Browser in the Unreal Editor. After a couple of seconds, Blueprints will be generated for your NeRF captures, which you can simply drag in and use inside Unreal Engine.

According to the company, the plug-in generates multiple Blueprints for each Luma Field:

  • Baked: These Blueprints contain the lighting as you captured them, so they will look as close to your capture as possible. They are not affected by shadows, or lighting, but can still be composited with other Luma Fields and Unreal Objects.
  • Dynamic: These Blueprints are affected by Unreal's lighting and shadows.
  • Cropped: These Blueprints contain an automatically cropped version of the center object of your capture, if one exists.
  • With Environment: These Blueprints additionally render a fitting sky environment for each capture for any region that was unseen during capture.
