Download

Just got unreal engine do I need any other software like illustrator/photoshop/sdk etc

New to game design wondering do I need software like illustrator/photoshop/sdk for game design

ok so,
for models you need a 3d package: maya/3ds max/blender
for textures you need 2d package: photoshop/gimp
grab visual studio community 2015 from Microsoft so you can compile

for more advanced texturing substance, Quixel, mari, 3d coat or mudbox

Brand new here too…

I got Blender, Gimp (already had) and Visual studio.

all free.

I also downloaded makehuman… but unsure of how that works with unreal/blender.
