What will you learn?

This course is an Intro to Unreal Engine that lets users with no experience become complete beginner-level power users with a solid understanding of the fundamental basics of working in the Unreal Editor. You will learn how to create and set up projects, customize the user interface, prepare your assets, and import assets from external sources.

This course will also teach navigation, placing and manipulating actors, asset preparation, naming conventions, and material creation. It also covers the PBR texture pipeline, the uses of different types of textures, how to represent them in Unreal, and the power of Blueprint to create a custom turntable showcasing an asset. In the middle of the course, students will be able to start in production mode and focus on creating a small scene fully assembled with basic lighting and post-processing.
