Optim utilizes the efficiency of Unreal Engine's Datasmith and the power of Python to allow users to visualize, optimize, and customize their Datasmith import process in its entirety.
The Perfect Datasmith Companion
Optim applies an accelerated workflow methodology to Unreal Engine's Datasmith Importer.
Optim enables users to create powerful rules that govern how their Datasmith files are imported. Set rules to combine actors, instance materials, manage lighting, and much more.
Optim reads all of the information from the Datasmith file and provides clean, modern, and informative visualizations. These visualizations allow users to effortlessly see what needs to be optimized and how.
Customize every aspect of the Datasmith import process using Optim. Switch out imported materials with those that are already inside Unreal, mass property editing, lightmap control, and more will be available.
Theia Interactive knows real time data prep. For more than 4 years we've pioneered the use of Unreal Engine for real time visualizations across demanding platforms like VR, AR, and mobile. Now it's time to bundle our expertise into a product that makes your life easier.
We see significant value in leveraging virtual reality technologies to deliver more predictable and efficient projects for our clients with the highest levels of quality and safety. We are thrilled to be partnering with Theia Interactive to produce these virtual reality experiences. Every step of the way they have exceeded our expectations and we look forward to working with their team on future projects.

Theia Interactive is redefining the paradigm of not only buying a property from a consumer perspective, but also of how to market from a property developers one. Add in the amazing real time visualisation and VR work they’re doing with luxury cars, yachts and private jets and you can understand why we're 100% behind them. The guys are doing amazing things!

What is Optim?
Optim is a python based tool that allows users inside of Unreal Engine to visualize, customize, and optimize the contents of their Datasmith files.
How does it work?
Optim reads and analyzes the information of the Datasmith files. Using this information, the user can then set rules that will completely govern how their Datasmith file is imported.
Inside Optim, users can set rules that govern the Datasmith import process. Rules such as combining static meshes, customizing LODs, swap out materials, managing lighting, and much more.
Does it work on all Datasmith types?
Optim currently supports 3dsMax and SketchUp Datasmith exports. Other Datasmith types will be supported in the near future.
What can Optim do for my team?
Optim will allow teams of any size to spend more of their time on what is important: making due dates, exceeding expectations, and being able to work on ever more ambitious projects.
What do I need to use Optim?
Unreal Engine and an Unreal Studio subscription.
Does Optim support Unreal Engine projects that have already been imported through the standard Datasmith Importer?
As of yet, no. We do intend to implement a way to interact with Datasmith Scene actors the standard Datasmith Importer process leaves in the world outliner in the near future.
What version(s) of Unreal Engine does Optim support?
Optim currently only supports Unreal Engine versions 4.20 & 4.21. Our team will be maintaining all release versions as we move into the future, though newly added features may only be supported by the newest Optim and Unreal Engine versions due to engine constraints.
