I am using Unreal so it caught my attention that it is in 5th place for most used render engine and It is also the one most people are considering switching to.

I'd never heard of Artlantis, Twinmotion, Fstorm, Enscape, Scanline or ART before.

One of the best archviz studios in the dc area uses Unreal and they swear by it. Their turnaround times are INSANE ( as in they get full projects done in days!)

Those stats make bringing out a new surfacing/rendering model (esp. a pkg-specific offering) look... exceedingly unwise. They are an incredibly strong and compelling argument for focusing efforts towards better SDK support for integration of external render engines (esp. Chaosgroup engines).

I really wish the Unreal support in LW2019 included better support for designing/previewing Unreal materials in LW -- or there were at least provisions for "official" third-party extension/modification of Bridge behavior.

great post...But there is some hope. Hitching their wagon with Unreal is probably a very wise move. But they have to go full in. Give us Unreal material preview support in layout.

BTW this is the studio I was talking about

Sorry to say, but it shows that their turnaround times are fast.
