World Building in Unreal Engine is a four-week course that focuses on creating 3D environments, virtual set design and previsualization to execute the artistic vision of a film. This in-person course will guide you through the powerful tools in Unreal Engine used to produce realistic visual cinematics that tell engaging stories. Participants will learn how to build scenes using landscape, foliage and water workflows, use materials, lighting and rendering techniques, and previsualize compelling shots through project based learning.
This course is designed for traditional 3D/CG artists, production designers, art directors, concept artists and will explore Quixel, Epic Games Marketplace, Buffer, Lumen and Nanite visualization tools for asset creation and model enhancements.
