Learning Unreal Engine: Photorealistic Cinematics

I am now done with the third of the five courses in the current Epic Games competition to learn how to use the Unreal Engine platform. No test assessments were in this course; only watching the video presentations.

So far this is my favorite course. Even if I never create my own video game the Unreal Engine software can be used to create very impressive 3D art that can be interactive.

The example project featured is titled "rebirth" by Quixel that showcases the kinds of assets available in the Megascans library. Step by step it is shown how to use color and lighting along with animated particles and textures to create a high quality scene.

The last two courses are about creating audio. Each course is more than two hours long.
