In this video Scott guides you through the material creation for our scene using the Material Editor in Unreal Editor. Using a range of textures and nodes we will build the necessary materials for our objects. While the Material Editor allows for tremendous complexity, building simple useful materials is an easy task.
- [Voiceover] Now we've built our scene in Unreal…with our geometry that we exported from…either Maya or CINEMA 4D,…and we've set up our camera properly…and our matinee properly so we can play back our animation.…In this video, now we're gonna build some basic materials…with some texture maps…and see how to set other material parameters…so we can get everything starting to look…as we want it to look.…So, in the My Project section here…in the Epic Games launcher…we're just gonna open up Chapter 2.…Okay, I'm gonna go to my content browser.…I'm gonna open my Chapter 2 ten level.…
Let's hit play real quick.…Excellent. This is exactly how we set it up to work.…Everything's proper.…I'm gonna hit escape to get out of here.…Let's go to our world outliner.…First thing I'm gonna do here is…I'm gonna organize our items a bit in our outliner.…I'm gonna make a new folder by right clicking in this area…and just go call it GEO for geometry.…I'm gonna grab the turbines, the terrain.…I'm control clicking here to select things.…The mountain and the logo,…
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.
