I want to make a logo video that is about 10 seconds long. I have photoshop, blender, and unreal engine 4.25. Unfortunately, I don’t have after effects and premiere pro for video editing. However, I thought to myself how about making the video in Unreal since the logo is going to be for a game studio. Now I have already started on the project but is there any difference between starting a new project as an empty game project or an empty film project when you create a new project?
Also, I notice some caveats on making films that are easier with after effects and premiere pro. I have this bird that is going to fly from point A to point B in 3-4 seconds. How do I move a skeletal mesh from one point to another in unreal without having to control it or turn it into an AI (unless that’s easier)? Do I have to animate the translation in blender and import it to unreal which sounds very cumbersome?
Also, change one mesh to another possible in UE4? I have this planet that the bird flys to and it explodes and turns into a black hole.’
Any advice or pointers? I have used unreal in the past for game dev but I never really done video or filmmaking and I"m learning as fast as possible.
