Obsah kurzu

What is the Workshop about?

Spend two days to discover the magic of proceduralism and how this process can be used to amplify your creative ideas in your Unreal Engine projects. In this Workshop we will cover the basic principles of 3D modeling, character creation and world building. Each part will be about 3-4 hours and open to discussion with an afternon session looking at my work and experiences.

Friday morning we will focus on the Unreal Engine. Starting with the basic introduction into Unreal, UI, Materials, and Blueprints.

We will cover the Cinematic Camera and Sequencer.We will be using our character from the first part and we will make a spectator camera.

We will also cover Procedural Assets and Word building for Unreal using Houdini. How to export and import Animated Assets using VAT (Vertex Animation Texture). Finally, we can cover an exciting and new topic about Machine learning for artists using Runway and Unity. I will show you how to render films using Runway and in combination with Unity.

On Saturday we will be using 3D software like Houdini, Zbrush to create a humanoid character.

We will cover the basics of the UI, Sub tools and NPR (non-photorealistic rendering) in Zbrush and the fundamentals of Organic modeling.

For this process in Zbrush, we will cover the modeling process starting from a basic humanoid rig in Zbrush, adding details and adding normal maps to the character. Subsequently, we will use the “Goz export” function in Zbrush to export for Houdini.

In Houdini we will rig the character using the automated rigging Process. We will animate the character and afterwards we will export it for Unreal and go through the import settings.
