Join Craig Barr for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files, part of Unreal: CAD Data Visualization.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files for this course, you'll find them available in this format. So you're going to see that there are two basic folders in there. There's a Props directory which contains the objects that I've created for you including the texture maps, as well as the overall Unreal Engine 4 CAD visualization project. And if we open that up you'll see that this is a typical Unreal Engine project. In here you'll have your basic configuration or project directory structure, as well as the actual ".u" project name, which in this case is "UE4_CAD_Viz".
In the save directory is where we're going to find all of our different collections of things as well as screenshots and output video capture for the video portion of the course. When setting up the course with Unreal, it is important that you actually follow along and use this ".u" project if you have access to this. Otherwise, I actually do show a way that you can set this up from scratch and be able to build your own visualizations and allowing you to follow along. So thanks for watching, enjoy the course.
