Webinar: Using Blueprints to Enhance Your Unreal Engine Scenes

December 13, 2021
Our recent live webinar Using Blueprints to Enhance Your Scenes explored some of the ways you can use Unreal Engine’s Blueprint visual scripting system to create interactive elements and animations for non-games use cases.

Blueprint is Unreal Engine’s visual scripting system that you can use to create anything from simple interactive or animated Actors all the way up to fully functioning games and simulations without writing a single line of code.

In this presentation, we’ll look at some commonly needed interactive elements used in non-games workflows, and how to achieve each of those using Blueprints. First, we’ll take a look at the basic Blueprint workflow and discuss its pros and cons. After that, we’ll create a series of interactions that should come in handy for most projects, including interactive Actors, animations, and informational and functional UI elements.

You’ll learn about:
  • The fundamental Blueprint workflow principles
  • Interactive elements such as multi-floor elevators and doors
  • Animations such as spline path animated characters
  • The Variant Manager system along with UI elements
  • Metadata for informational UI elements
  • Blueprints for custom UI menu screens
