GREENBELT, Md. and CARY, N.C. (May 15, 2009) – Scaleform Corporation, in coordination with Epic Games, Inc. has shipped the newest Scaleform GFx-Unreal Engine 3 integration kit in tandem with the latest QA-approved build of Unreal Engine 3 for all mutual licensees. The deep integration between the two products, along with Scaleform’s commitment to synchronize releases of its kit with recurring Unreal Engine 3 commercial code drops, marks a new achievement in middleware support and sets the example for Epic Games’ premiere Integrated Partners Program.

Scaleform GFx, the industry-leading user interface (UI) production tool for hardware-accelerated Adobe Flash-based scalable vector graphics and video, is fully integrated into the UE3 hardware-independent graphical rendering system, enabling artists to create scalable data-driven Flash UI elements for videos, menuing systems, overlays, HUDs and animated textures directly on 3D objects. The Scaleform GFx deep level of integration with Unreal Engine 3 includes ties with the Unreal Editor, UnrealScript, Unreal Kismet, packaging, threading, and most impressively, the Unreal Gemini renderer.

“Scaleform is the first Integrated Partner to offer a simultaneous release with an Unreal Engine QA-approved build,” remarked Dr. Michael Capps, president of Epic Games. “We applaud Scaleform for its commitment to maintain such great support for Unreal Engine 3 and our shared customers going forward.”

“We’ve invested heavily in making our integration with Unreal Engine 3 work really well, and want to ensure licensees have a seamless and smooth development process. Maintaining compatibility with every QA release of the engine is a top priority for us,” said Brendan Iribe, president of Scaleform. “Dozens of teams have adopted and successfully shipped hit titles with our UE3 integration kit. This joint effort between Scaleform and Epic signifies our commitment to deliver the highest level of timely and reliable professional support.”
