FREE Discovery Session: Real-time 3D - October

Dive inside Unreal Engine and build a virtual scene with real-time 3D expert Logan Pinney

Tuesday, Oct 10 12:00PM (GMT-04:00)


Make your real-time 3D and virtual production education a reality! 

Unreal Engine developer and CG Spectrum Mentor Logan Pinney looks forward to sharing his knowledge during CG Spectrum's free live session Discover: Real-time 3D!

Look under the hood at some of the newest tools available within Unreal Engine and explore some of the necessary skills to navigate the game engine, moving step-by-step through the creation of a scene (which could go on to be used in one of the many stages of virtual production): from starting with an idea to finding reference, blocking out and previsualization to achieving the final cinematic shot—a moody zen garden.

Epic's Unreal Engine is a free game engine that renders in real-time. It is commonly used by game developers and real-time 3D artists for both video games and film and TV.

Logan will also demonstrate how professionals leverage Quixel Megascans to bring their vision to life faster than ever with their library of thousands of photogrammetry scanned objects, available for free inside Unreal Engine!

There'll also be a chance to ask questions during our Q&A.
