Course Description

This course is intended for those with a more comfortable understanding of the Unreal Engine who have an interest in creating Particle FX or Visual FX. In this course, we take you through the process of setting up a complex particle system that warps a character in through a teleportation device, as well as an amazing look at "phasing" the character in to view! We'll look at creating the holographic projections you see in the scene, adding texture and distortion to the sequence, and then wrap up the series with an in-depth look at setting up a basic render and animating the camera and lights so that you can make your very own cut-scenes and cinematics!

Learn tips and tricks of creating dynamic animation and games design.

    SGD $189.00

    Course Description

    This course will start with an introduction and teaches many of the advanced techniques talented artists use to create this style of 3d asset. We'll show you the creation process for low poly weapons with a strong emphasis on hand painted texture maps. We'll begin by modelling a sword in Maya 2011, show the unwrapping process, and take you step-by-step through creating hand-painted, stylized textures for both a sword and a shield asset. Following that, we'll dive into reviewing the concept art and blocking out some base shapes, and from there jump into the wonderful world of UV unwrapping. Next, we'll be taking a look at the different stone, metal, and wood surface types we'll be painting, discuss and decide where we can save some texture resolution by sharing UV space, and then get moving on bringing the texture and visual look and feel.
