Using UE4 for Animation NOT gaming


I’ve mainly used UE4 for game dev but am now wanting to use it specifically for animation. What’s the best Project Settings to use in UE4 if I’m planning to use it strictly for animations? Not gaming.

There are no best project settings. If you just want to make animations, Unreal Engine probably isn’t the best choice anyway; try Blender or something first.

No special project settings. You can start with basically any template.
If you want to use Live link to get facial animation enable the related plugins.
Enable take recorder and movie render queue plugins as well.
Load up control rig mannequin or create a metahuman and use the control rig.
Use sequencer to build animation shots and render them out or playback directly depending on what you want to do.
