When updating your PopcornFX Editor, make sure to also update the Unreal Engine plugin to match that editor version.

Unreal Engine versions

When a new UE version comes out, we provide a plugin update.

The latest plugin currently supports: UE4.26, UE4.27 and UE5.0

Note: In v2.11, the UE5.0 support is experimental for Win64, feel free to reach out to us on our discord if you need any help.

This plugin does

  • Ultimately implement all the PopcornFX SDK integration features
  • Use the standard pipelines of Unreal Engine 4 and 5 for workflow, rendering etc… (if we do something wrong, please contact us!)
  • Let you customize particle materials for rendering
  • Keep the plugin a plugin: no engine source code modification needed !

This plugin does not

  • Provide a way to author PopcornFX v2 effects directly inside the UE4/UE5 editor. To do this, you have to use the PopcornFX v2 Editor
  • Have a relation with Unreal Engine’s Cascade or Niagara particle systems, PopcornFX is another, different particle system engine
