Design Instruments for Communication

The primary goal of this quick start guide is to introduce you to Unreal Engine 4`s (UE4) development environment. By the end of this guide, you`ll know how to set up and develop C++ Projects in UE4. This guide shows you how to create a new Unreal Engine project, add a new C++ class to it, compile the project, and add an instance of a new class to your level. By the time you reach the end of this guide, you`ll be able to see your programmed Actor floating above a table in the level.

This quick start guide shows you how to add assets to your Unreal Engine (UE4) games. By the end of this guide, you`ll know how to use the Project Browser to create new projects and navigate the Content Browser to find and add content. You`ll also know where to find information on the FBX Content Pipeline while learning how to use the Material Editor to modify Materials before applying them to a Static Mesh Actor.

Main Features

  • Achieve Hollywood best quality visuals out of the box.
  • With complete C++ source code access, you can study.
  • Comes with designer-friendly Blueprint visual scripting.
  • Unreal Engine provides Robust Multiplayer Framework.
  • The built-in Cascade visual effects editor enables particles.
  • Unreal Engine 4`s Material Editor makes use of physically-based.

What is the target audience?

  • You might be thinking, all of the above – and that is fine. But as a complete beginner learning Unreal Engine 4.
  • The rendering system in Unreal Engine 4 is an all-new, DirectX 11 pipeline that includes deferred shading.

Learning a new game engine as a complete beginner is very intimidating. There are a lot of tutorials, documentation and advice already out but how do you start and proceed with learning Unreal Engine 4 is unclear. You get pulled into many different directions and end up confused and overwhelmed.

I have spent a lot of time deconstructing what it takes to learn a game engine from scratch. What it is that you should focus on first and what you should avoid until later.

Welcome to your first slider tutorial. This slides will start with a simple introduction. Then, You will open up google cause I"ll show you where you can download the blender software and which version of it will we be using in the entire course period.

Note: The download link is available with the lecture, plus the .pdf file is also included for you to download if you still need help downloading the software.

Ray Tracing
60 minutes

Early computer graphics shading models proposed by Henri Gouraud and Bui Tuong Phong, among others, computed reflections based on the spatial relationship between light sources and a point on a surface. Somewhat later, Jim Blinn developed a reflection model derived from Ken Torrance’s work describing inter-reflections of the microscopic structures of surfaces.

Design and Visualization with Nvidia
Epic has created a $5,000,000 development fund to provide financial grants to interesting and innovative projects built in and around Unreal Engine 4. Awards range from $5,000 to $50,000, and there are no strings attached: you continue to own your IP, are free to publish however you wish, and can use the grant funds without any restrictions or obligations to Epic.
UE4 is free to use, with a 5% royalty on gross product revenue after the first $3,000 per game per calendar quarter from commercial products. Read the EULA FAQ for more details. Contact us if you require custom terms.
Yes. You can earn advertising revenue or Twitch donations from Unreal Engine 4 videos and publish to YouTube. No royalty is owed on this revenue.
GitHub is our channel through which a growing number of contributors can fork and modify the engine. Source code changes you check in at GitHub will be visible to the community. If you submit a pull request to Epic, we`ll review it and consider inclusion of your code into mainline UE4. If we ship your contribution, we`ll gladly add your name to the credits in the engine.
Yes. Access to full C++ source code for UE4 is included from the moment you create an account and install the engine. You can download source code from GitHub, and you will continue to receive regular updates, including access to live source code changes. Even if you don’t plan to modify the source, it’s super-useful to have it available to understand and debug interactions between your C++ code and the engine’s C++ code!
Unreal Engine 4 enables you to deploy projects to Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, AR, VR, Linux, SteamOS, and HTML5. You can run the Unreal Editor on Windows, OS X and Linux.Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and NIntendo Switch console tools and code are available at no additional cost to developers who are registered developers for their respective platform(s).
View the Support page for the most comprehensive information regarding how you can get help and information for development with the Unreal Engine. If you`re a custom licensee (meaning you have a UE4 license agreement with Epic other than the free EULA), you should ask your questions at the Unreal Developer Network (login required).
For developing with UE4, we recommend a desktop PC with Windows 7 64-bit or a Mac with Mac OS X 10.9.2 or later, 8 GB RAM and a quad-core Intel or AMD processor, and a DX11 compatible video card. UE4 will run on desktops and laptops below these recommendations, but performance may be limited.
Yes, the EULA is very liberal in this regard. It doesn’t contain a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). You’re free to use, learn from, and freely discuss the Unreal Engine even if you’re developing a competing product or technology.
The Unreal Engine 4 EULA is a legal document which you’re agreeing to when you sign up for the Unreal Engine. It governs your use of the Unreal Engine, and also describes your rights and obligations when you build games or other products using the engine. Download the EULA as a PDF here.
