In this video Scott explains how to render out our scene as an image sequence using the Render Movie Settings window accessible via Matinee in Unreal Editor. Scott will show the few simple settings we need to be aware of to properly render out our scene as an image sequence for reassembly and final movie file creation in After Effects.
- [Voiceover] In this video, we're going to take a look…at how to render our animation out…as a frame sequence to disk.…So we're in Chapter2, Level 13.…This is everything we've done to date.…It's got our scene that we've put together…with our lighting, and our materials, and our camera.…I'm going to just play it back.…Everything is working the way we expected it to work.…We just want to render this out to disk,…then we're going to open it up in After Effects…and see how our rendered animation…looks in another context.…Okay, so the way we get to…the Render Movie window is we're going to go…to our Cinematics menu and open up our Matinee.…
If we click on the Movie icon in the upper-right corner,…that's going to get our Render Movie Settings dialogue.…So now we can close Matinee…because that's not necessary anymore…and this'll stay open.…I want to change a few defaults.…We're going to make sure that we're going…to do a PNG sequence for this.…We're going to do 30 frames per second…and keep it at 1280 by 720.…Some other options here,…
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.
