In this movie Scott explains how to properly export geometry from Maya 2016 for use in Unreal Editor. Using Maya 2016's Game Exporter, Scott explains the process and setting tweaks necessary to create perfectly prepared FBX files for import into Unreal Engine. We'll take a look at the various elements in our scene and see how to break it down into discrete elements for export and reassembly in Unreal Editor.
- [Voiceover] Now we're going to take a look…at another example scene that we've set up for you.…And again we're going to select…different objects in the scene in Maya…and we're going to export them as seperate FBX…files to then important into the Unreal Editor.…So I'm just going to play this thing back real quick.…Really simple and straight forward.…We have these mechanical panels that open up.…A little bit of a reveal to a product shot.…Standard little motion graphics scene.…Very basic shapes.…Very very simple here just to get the process down again.…
Lets go into our view port and lets look through…our perspective view.…And we can see of various objects we have here.…So first let's turn some things off…So we can just see one thing at the time.…OK we've got our bottle here.…Look I see our bottle has a little bit of a rotate…built in on it.…So I'm going to select our bottle…and I'm going to go to File, Game Exporter.…And we're going to look at our options again here.…We're going to make sure that export selection is set.…
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.
