In this movie Scott explains how to create a new Unreal Editor project. Scott shows you various world, project, and editor settings we'll set initially for our project. Since we are using the Unreal Engine purely as a renderer for 3D content, we can crank up a range of settings to ensure we are creating the highest quality images possible.
- [Voiceover] Now that we've exported out scene…geometry we're going to make a new…Unreal Editor project…to be able to put all that back together…and start building our scene.…So in the Epic Launcher we're just going to launch…the Unreal Editor.…Alright, so we're going to make a new project.…Same settings we had before.…A blank blueprint project.…Make sure to have no starter content,…cuz we don't need all that.…I'm just going to call this chapter two.…Create project.…Alright, excellent.…So first thing we're going to do…some of these basic settings as well.…
I'm going to go to under settings, world settings…under lightmass I'm going to open up our…advanced settings and turn on…force no precomputed lighting.…Cool.…This stuff will come into effect later…when we're actually dealing with lightning…and a lot of it isn't incredibly relevant…for the level of complexity we're doing in these scenes.…But these are good work flows for doing motion graphics…in here where we're not worried about baked…or static lighting.…Now I'm going to go into my settings menu.…
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.
