Are you frustrated trying to learn UE4 by yourself?

I've spent months learning all this stuff so you don't have to. Once you know what to do, trust me, it's really simple, so easy and super quick!

Are you an architect, a designer or a 3D artist wanting to learn Unreal Engine? Do you love to be creative and want to jump onto this 3D revolution? Or have your clients been asking about Virtual Reality and you just haven't been able to deliver?

Perhaps. you've been looking at all these incredibly realistic Archviz YouTube videos done in UE4 and you're thinking to yourself: "I want to do that! But where do I start?"

Maybe you've spent ages reading the UE4 manual, or scour postings on the forums but don't really have the time and have ended up more confused than before with results that are, errr not great... ; )

Well don't worry, I'm with you on that one, I've been there! I'm a qualified architect and I've been a 3D visualiser for 20 years. I think I've seen it all. I've probably spent more time in my life watching those little squares rendering my images than anything else! So when UE4 came out and I saw the works by Koola and UE4Archviz, I thought: "This is it, I want to do that !" Sound familiar? 

Well of course, Unreal Engine being free, I downloaded it straight away. But guess what? It sat there on my desktop for almost a year before I finally managed to start learning it. Not only that but I got really confused and just didn't get the results I expected at first. The software evolves all the time so you spend ages reading something on the forums only to realize it's from years ago and totally out of date!

But fear not! The end of the struggle is here! I've packed together everything I've learnt in UE4 in this course to help you learn this incredible software fast!  

Scroll down below, and have a look at what we are going to do together through this video-based course.

Hi ! I'm Fabrice

I live in London and I've been a 3D visualiser since 1996. I am qualified in Architecture and was very quickly drawn to 3D and creating images. My clients include Google, Bentley, Red Bull, Thomas Heatherwick, Jean Nouvel, Phillipe Starck. More recently I've become passionate about teaching everything I know about Unreal Engine in ArchViz. I do in house training, coaching  and online courses like this one.

What will you learn through this Course ?

Below are a few of the skills you will learn from taking this course

  • Quickly and easily import your models so that you can immediately walk around your designs in "massing" in realtime and VR.
  • Understand how physically based materials work (it's simpler than you think!) and tweak in realtime to achieve realistic looking scenes
  • We go through many material examples so you can build concrete, stone, glass, wood, water, mirrors, you name it!
  • Textures are massively important to achieve realism so I give you an introduction to Substance designer. 
  • Use interactive daylight setup to create beautiful day AND night scenes effortlessly, creating that special atmosphere.
  • Post production is the icing on the cake. Take it up a level and you can achieve professional looking images in a few clicks. That's the secret!
  • Create movies like the one above in a few minutes, view and present you work in VR. You can literally change things 1 hour before your meeting, or even IN the meeting! I share with you some of my professional experience.

BONUS - How to use Substance Designer

You've probably heard about Substance designer and if you haven't... where have you been? ; ) All the pros and best artists out there use it.

It is an amazing software to quickly create custom high quality, high resolution textures and integrates perfectly in UE4. I found it very difficult to find a good beginner tutorial, so I've done one for especially for you. : )

  • Is this course for me if I don't use 3ds max? - YES, only module 2 is about modelling and explains concepts in 3DSMAX easily transferable to any other software. I provide you with the FBX files so you can import the project in UE4 as if you had done them yourself.
  • Is this course OK for beginners? - Absolutely, I don't assume you know anything about UE4 and take you through all the steps. If you are more advanced you might gain usefull tips and tricks in the later modules and you can skip the first 2 or 3 modules
  • What files to I get ? - EVERYTHING ! : ) You get the Max files, the exported FBX, the UE4 files at all different stages of completions so you can complete them by yourself and compare your result to mine. You also get the textures and if I use proprietary resources, I point you to where you can either get them for free or by them.
