Unreal Engine MasterClass 2
(made in Unreal 5.0)
This is a four-part series using Daz Studio and Unreal Engine together in the character creation and development process. Some of the topics covered in the series as a whole include: Daz to Unreal plugin, Morphs, Groom Hair, Metahuman, Pawn and Actor Blueprints, Repairing Basic Foot IKs, Control Rigs, Creating IK Rigs and IK Re-Targeters, Animations, Lighting, and Best Importing Options. Each part of the series builds upon the last, so as we get more comfortable with the Unreal Engine, we go deeper and deeper into character development.
There is a free 25-minute video sample available for you here: Free Video MasterClass Series 2 continues the knowledge learned from Class 1. We will dive deeper inside Unreal Engine, working with the creation of a Pawn character using a combination of Daz figures and Metahuman figures.
