Unity is one of the world's leading CG platforms and can be used for everything from film VFX to video game creation. In recent years we've seen a huge upsurge in content creators utilising game engines like Unity (and Unreal Engine 5) to deliver their work to the public. 

These CG engines have put unbelievably powerful tools into the hands of everyday artists and led to an explosion of highly-rated games, films and visualisation. While the debate still pits Unity versus Unreal Engine, and you can read my Unreal Engine 5 review for a closer examination, here I'll be looking at Unity's recent new features that make it on of the best platforms for content creation. (You may want one of the best laptops for game development if you're serious about using Unity or Unreal Engine.)
