It would be great if there were versions of Unreal Engine that are listed as separate software and can not be tracked back to gaming easily.
Right now, if we want to convince people that UE4 is a really good software for visualisation of automotive traffic scenes or arch vis or other non-gaming applications, it is a really hard sale to project people or quality people or the management because of the gaming image that comes with UE4. The idea basically dies the moment they google Unreal Engine and see a first person shooter gun aiming at some strange monsters. That is basically a sudden death and us poor engineers and developers, who usually can tell them that the earth has turned into a disk and they eat it and give money to make it a sphere again, have made fools of ourselves.
The BMW people used UE4 recently for early design (great!), but even those articles avoid mentioning UE4 as good as they can and focus on the VR. The gaming world just does not fit well into other businesses image-wise and therefore UE4 separate and renamed versions would be a big plus.
If UE4 did versions like autodesk has Maya and then 3dsmax, that would be great. 3dsmax comes across as ‘serious’ to non-gaming people. You google it, the first tab is architecture. That’s perfect, that’s a serious image. You google Maya, you look at monsters. That’s not good. If you do archvis and say the customer you use Maya and they google it and see a monster or other strange things, that’s a drawback which one might not be really aware of if you spent all your life with gaming.
