First year of teaching UE4

Starting to get some examples of what students can do with UE4 -am amazed each lesson seeing how well they take to the software and how well it runs

One of my first years levels, should have lots more soon!

Japanese School Level Blocking

Blueprints have gone down well!

Awesome. Wish I had UE4 back when I was in school. =P

I’m getting some great games coming out of my module too, we’re working on 2D games first and then a 3D one after that. Most of them are picking up blueprints pretty well too! What age range are you teaching?

16-19 - they all do seem to pickup blueprints much faster than I expected, if its was just c++ we would have a lot more problems

cool, thats basically the same range as i’m tutoring. Are you getting them to make their own assets to use or from packs etc?

Bit of both, we have done a unit using MAX and around half take to it but others need more help so packs are used if needed. Materials are done by the students as well. You heard of Awesomebump? GitHub - kmkolasinski/AwesomeBump: AwesomeBump is a free program written using Qt library designed to generate normal, height, specular or ambient occlusion textures from a single image. Since the image processing is done in 99% on GPU the program runs very fast and all the parameters can be changed in real time. AB was made to be a new alternative to known gimp plugin called Insane Bump. great bit of software and free

Dits, I’d be curious to see your syllabus if you wouldn’t mind sharing.

The course is called BTEC Creative Media Production (Games Development) More info here
