i3DTutorials and The Unreal Engine 4 Educational Initiative
Staff Writer By: Ricky Grove (gToon)
i3DTutorials founder announces latest educational initiative for Unreal Engine 4: a massive online training system designed to teach you everything you need to know about game development with UE4. The debut courses being offered by this new program will be focused on game development with Unreal Engine 4 by Epic Games.
The course is instructed by Leo Gonzalez, founder of i3DTutorials and an established developer in AAA games with years of experience creating console and PC games. These courses will last several weeks and take you through the process of working with UE4 to push your skills and production knowledge more than ever. You will be taken through a pipeline that closely simulates one used in a AAA games studio. There are currently three courses available, including:
Unreal 4: Game Asset Creation. In this course you will learn how to work with UE4, Maya, ZBrush, and Substance Designer to create your own game assets. You'll use Substance to create high quality textures faster and easier than ever before. http://www.cgcircuit.com/workshops/unreal-4-game-asset-creation
Unreal 4: World-Building will teach you the same world-building techniques we use to create levels for AAA console games with UE4. http://www.cgcircuit.com/workshops/unreal-4-world-building
Finally, Unreal 4: Lighting will teach you how to light game environments like a pro and how to leverage UE4's powerful lighting tools so your projects will stand out over the rest. http://www.cgcircuit.com/workshops/unreal-4-lighting
The courses include one on one feedback and career advice through live chats with your instructor. Students participating in the course not only learn new skills and how to push their abilities further, but will also benefit from learning how to create better portfolios, career advice, and information on how to successfully interview for jobs in the games industry.
