eBook Description:

Virtual Filmmaking with Unreal Engine 5: Discover the power of storytelling with Unreal Engine 5’s real-time technology, exploring storyboarding, character creation, world building, animating using sequencers, and much more

Virtual Filmmaking with Unreal Engine 5 is the first Unreal Engine book to guide you through the complete process of virtual film production. Encompassing the full spectrum of filmmaking, this book demonstrates the use of an industry-standard tool used by studios such as Disney, ILM, DNEG, and Framestore.

Walking through the process systematically, you’ll first collect references and create a simple storyboard to plan your shots. Then you’ll begin to create virtual environments, importing 3D models and adding materials and textures to create photorealistic, dynamic worlds. After that, you’ll learn how to create actors using highly customizable MetaHumans, understanding how to import, re-target, and animate them. Finally, you’ll bring it all together with cinematic lighting and camera animation before exporting your film.
