To celebrate creators across all industries, we commissioned artist and director FILFURY and his team at The Mill to make a short brand film using Unreal Engine. 

In this webinar, Epic Games’ Technical Artist Malachi Duncan provides an insight into how the artist-friendly visual effects for the video were created inside Unreal Engine. 

You’ll learn how to:
  • Prepare and export meshes for rigid body animation using 3ds Max and Unreal Engine’s Pivot Painter tool
  • Create a vertex shader using submesh pivots
  • Use data assets to make the Blueprint asset artist-friendly
  • Create a ripple effect

FILFURY’s experience of working in Unreal Engine for the project changed his outlook on the future of visual effects creation. You can find out more in this behind-the-scenes interview.
