Unreal Engine 5 is now available!

This Early Access build of Unreal Engine 5 is not production-ready, but this is where, for the first time, you can get your hands on Unreal 5 to try out the new features such as Nanite and Lumen

You will need a powerful PC to run it, as these systems are designed for next gen systems such as PS5.

There is also a demo project to download which showcases the new features. But be aware it is almost 100GB in size!

10,000 free Megascans with Unreal Engine 4.24!

Quixel, creator of the world’s largest photogrammetry 2D and 3D asset library, has joined the Epic Games family, and we’re making the entire Quixel Megascans library of more than 10,000 high-quality, production-ready assets free for all use with Unreal Engine!

This is great news for the Unreal Engine, that has now released version 4.24 available to download for free that comes with amazing free assets that will change the look of games in the near future. Not only does it support real time raytracing, but now photorealistic environments!

The movie “The Lion King” utilized the megascans library to bring the impressive 3D world to life. Now you can create your own worlds that look just as impressive

THE LION KING – Featuring the voices of JD McCrary as Young Simba and Shahadi Wright Joseph as Young Nala, Disney’s “The Lion King” is directed by Jon Favreau. In theaters July 19, 2019. © 2019 Disney Enterprises, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

They can be imported directly into Unreal Engine using the bridge tool and it is then just a case of drag and drop to add to your world.

Learn 3D animation like a professional using Unity Timeline with this comprehensive guide

What you’ll learn:

  • Animate like a professional
  • Master the Unity Timeline
  • Create realistic looking scenes for your animations
  • Add post processing effects to give your animations a AAA quality feel
  • Save out your animations as video files
  • Learn how to create 3D animations in Unity without using coding

Join the realtime revolution at Unity 3D, which now has the ability to render out broadcast quality 3D animations in realtime! That’s right, no more waiting for hours or even days to render out that 30 second animation!

I will be showing you step by step how to use the Unity 3D engine to achieve the following:

  • Import free 3D characters and props from the Unity asset store
  • Create a realistic 3D backdrop for your animation
  • Modify your main characters (Troll and Knight)
  • Add post processing effects to give the animation a professional quality look
  • Animate a 30 second sequence of the Knight and Troll fighting using the Timeline, which doesn’t require any coding whatsoever!!
  • I will show you how to cut between cameras to switch shots
  • I will show you how to create over ride animations for individual body parts
  • I will show you how to create slow motion sequences
  • Finally we will be exporting the 30 second animation out as a video file (either .mp4 or .webm)

You will develop the skills in this series which will alow you to go on to create your own 3D animated movies in Unity and export them as videos to share online.

It is also useful for people wanting to learn how to create animated cut scenes for games (But remember, this is not a game design course, it focuses only on animation)

I am also here to help, so if you get stuck, or want to know more, drop me a message in the Q & A section and I will get back to you ASAP
