Is it possible to make my own fixture?

We are developing a fixture creator for Carbon, which will be announced later this year. In the meantime, you can use Blueprint widgets to make anything controllable via Carbon’s DMX system.

Will Carbon for Unreal work in Multi-user sessions?

We are researching this exciting workflow and will share more soon.

How can I tell if I have the latest release of Carbon for Unreal?

There is a dynamic message on the bottom of the Carbon Core Palette that will notify you of any new versions.

Is Carbon for Unreal a Project Plugin or an Engine Plugin?

We opted to develop Carbon as a Project plugin, so every project can use a different version of the plugin if needed. This is to support projects with long lifecycles or ones that need to be revisited at a later date.

Can I package my project as a standalone executable?

Carbon for Unreal is a pre-compiled plugin, and therefore does not contain any source files. Current licensing disallows the packaging of Carbon as a redistributable. Users can apply for exceptions to this rule if you work with Imaginary Labs as a project partner.
