Unreal Engine MasterClass 3

(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 3 carries on the comprehensive knowledge learned about character development inside of Unreal from Classes 1 and 2. We will need animations to apply to our figures, so in this class, we will be creating IK Rigs and Retargeters for Mixamo, UE4, and UE5 mannequins. During such, we also learn how to limit joint movement and rotations so our animations reflect how a body naturally moves.
