Master current VFX workflows in game development inside UE4
A detailed guide to a job role commonly overlooked in commercial training, Introduction to Visual Effects for Games in Unreal provides over nine hours of video training on current games effects workflows.

The tutorial covers the creation of a water spout from initial concept sketch to finished animation, using Photoshop, Maya and Unreal Engine, including Unreal’s material editor and Cascade particle editor.

Griffith begins by exploring how to analyse natural phenomena, breaking them down into elements that can be recreated inside a game engine, through a static water spout scene.

He then applies the same techniques to an animated water spout, also discussing key animation principles.
