Creating my own objects

Hey all, Im brand new to ue4 but a senior in college studying CS. Ive decided I want to learn how games are made now and am having alot of fun following the unreal tutorials. My main question that I can’t seem to find is, is it possible to create small objects in ue4? I have blender but I want to create some glowing mushrooms like in the movie Avatar. Do I have to do that through a 3d modeling program like blender? Thanks.

It’s recommended to do it in a 3d program, because it gives you a better flexibility + you are abel to uv map stuff + it’s easier + a better performance. But theoretically it’ possible to create a 3d object in the UE4, just not recommended :slight_smile:
