Twinmotion 2023.2 has landed and it is stronger than it has ever been; its connection to Epic Games and therefore to Unreal Engine 5 is becoming increasingly apparent with every release. The new version of Twinmotion includes the Unreal Engine 5 feature Lumen, a tool that has been mesmerising users of the real time engine since its introduction.

Think of Twinmotion as a very light version of Unreal Engine, a software perfect for visualisers, architects and designers. Read my Twinmotion 2 review for more details on how it works, and my Unreal Engine 5.3 review for a grasp of why everyone loves this real time platform. I regularly use both, which is why Twinmotion 2023.2 looks very exciting.
