UNREAL ENGINE means REAL-TIME rendering. In this module, we will explore the interface, the tools, and the integration it offers with other software to produce beautiful, mesmerizing renders.
Now that you have created all the textures and materials, learn what it takes to finalize the look of a character or an asset by applying real physical world parameters with UNREAL ENGINE.
In this module, you will get the skills to “transform” your character and learn how to properly import the assets into UNREAL ENGINE.
You will learn the fundamentals of lighting and how a DOP (director of photography) sets the scene for the best results.
In this part, you will master your compositing skills and learn to finalize a full CG render inside UNREAL and with NUKE, the industry-standard software for advanced VFX used by the world’s biggest and best facilities.
After mastering all the skills through the instructors, students will be involved in the actual production of a series of shots, to compose a little short film of their creation.
This module will enhance your soft skills by providing a comprehensive overview of project management, structured planning tools and techniques, processes, and procedures to complete a project from beginning to end. We will also provide you with time management skills to achieve your personal and professional goals. At this point you will know how to measure your time for concentration and efficiency, fight stress, and how make the distinction between effectiveness and efficiency and the concept of priority and urgency. The final goal is to understand how to improve your interpersonal and human skills in critical thinking, problem-solving and setting, decision strategy, teamwork, leadership, and the acquisition of optimal, empathetic, and effective communication skills.
