    Sorry for the trouble. Been there.

    The question about Epic making enough in games is kind of rhetorical. Yes, they're making plenty in that market but it takes very little effort for some CEO to ask "are we making enough by not charging for rendering archviz & entertainment?"

    They're in a good position to generate dependence on their tools and then seek more revenue.

    well they still do make money from that area as there is a paid version of unreal, I think several users on here have said they use it just because you get 24hr support and also access to material libraries, I might be wrong but I think even viz houses that fall under the "if you make x amount you have to pay for it" criteria, so the more people use it for free, the more they end up getting once you make a name for yourself, so in a way its a win for them to help you to learn, profit and grow with it for free to start with.
