I just grabbed a UE4 license for personal use, and I am looking to improve my graphics skills by implementing or improving some physically based rendering algorithms. I have little interest in making a full game at this time. I am not familiar with Unreal, but it seems like a good place to start would be to use one of the pre-existing projects and start getting my hands dirty. Does anyone have any recommendations on which project to start with? I was thinking of kicking off with shooter game.
Any other tips or advice would be appreciated :).
