In this video Scott explains how to use post-process volumes in Unreal Editor. Post-process volumes are massively powerful and allow you to refine the look of your scene with grading, glow, lens flares, and film grain, to bring your scene across the finish line via methods that are typically handled in the compositing stage.
- [Voiceover] In this video,…we're going to take a look…at how to use post-process volumes…in the Unreal editor to add…some finishing touches to our look.…So we're in Chapter 2_12,…we've added some lights in…and we've animated our light's parameters,…we've got all of our materials set up…and we just want to add some finishing touches…to our shot before we render it out.…So we're going to go to our Modes tab here,…and we're going to go to Volumes,…and we're going to go down…to PostProcessVolume you see here…and we're going to drag that into the scene.…All right, now I'm just going to navigate around…I'm going to zero this guy out…so it's in the center of the scene.…
Let's scale it up,…let's maybe make it 20 units on each side.…So it encompasses our whole scene.…For good measure, let's do even more,…let's make it 30 just so it definitely covers everything.…Now, you'll notice with this PostProcessVolume…there is a parameter called Unbound,…and if that's checked,…the actual scale of what's in the bounds…of this doesn't really matter anyway…
This course offers mograph designers a quick-start guide to real-time motion graphics in Unreal Engine 4 (UE4). Scott Pagano shows how to prep and import both static and animated geometry and animate objects and cameras with the Matinee Editor. He shows how to flesh out your scenes with Unreal's lighting and shading tools, and export video files and image sequences for further refinement in software such as After Effects. Following the quick-start chapter are three real-world projects that demonstrate the power of the workflow.
This forward-thinking approach to motion graphics leaves antiquated processes behind and presents modern, efficient, and fun ways to create 3D imagery. Once you have a grasp of how to import, animate, and make your content look great in UE4, the doors are open to dive into worlds of virtual reality, gaming, and interactive content.
