Unreal Engine: Materials Basics Training
Photorealistic surfaces in the Unreal Engine
This one-day hands-on workshop covers the basics of using materials in the Unreal Engine.
Materials are the “paint” of the surface of the objects in a scene. Through the correct handling and use of materials, photorealistic surfaces can be simulated. With the standardized PBR workflow (Physically Based Rendering) of the Unreal Engine, everything follows a structured and comprehensible system. The goal of the seminar is to gain a sound basic understanding of the handling, use and technology of materials in the Unreal Engine.
