In this movie Scott explains using the Epic Games Launcher as a hub to launch Unreal Editor. The Epic Games Launcher is used to download the Unreal Engine itself as well as access demo content from Epic Games, browse the content marketplace, and use as a launcher for the various projects you create on your system.

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.
