Create and animate a tree

Hey there,

so I want to create my own personal animate tree assets for Unreal Engine 4.

Now I have modeled a tree in blender but where exactly do I create the Animation?

Do I rig and animate the tree in blender as well and Import all that stuff into UE or does the animation part happen inside the engine itself?

Thanks in advance!

Typically you rig and animate things in your 3d program.

I wouldn’t recommend animating a tree however. You get a few of theme in your scene and your framerate is gonna start to go south.

Have a look at these tutorials for getting started with animating. The tutorials are for 2.7, but everything translates fine to 2.80

What about something like Battlefield 4 where at least some of the trees can be cut down?
