03 KEY CONCEPTS

HOW O3DE WORKS

Open 3D Engine (O3DE) provides a complete, end-to-end development environment that consists of code, scripts, tools, editors, and systems that help you build your project:

Core
Modules

Supplied by the O3DE software development kit (SDK), that provide math, memory management, serialization, event messaging, and more.

Authoring
Tools

Such as the Editor and related applications for placing objects in a level, adding components, and scripting logic.

Submodules
(Gems)

To add features and functionality, from materials, textures, and models, to scripting editors, to entire runtime systems such as the Atom renderer, AI, and physics.

Asset Pipeline Tools

For converting, optimizing, and bundling assets.

Build system

To build and package a shippable launcher.

Workflow

When you compile a project, O3DE’s build scripts pull in all the pieces that are specified in your project’s configuration. When built, your project will only use the parts of the O3DE SDK that you included in your configuration. Likewise, the asset bundling and management tools ensure you only ship the assets that your project requires.

04 KEY FEATURES
