Weekly Twitch Recap

By Chance Ivey

EGX in London was a blast. We had such a wonderful time hanging out with everyone that came by, as well as the 8 indie teams that showed their games in our booth. Pictures from the event are up at the Unreal Engine Facebook Page, and interviews with our indie teams are now up at our YouTube channel. IndieCade is right around the corner, where our own Alan Noon will be teaching about Paper2D, and the East Coast Dev Tour announcement is now live! RSVP to let us know what you want to learn about.

In this livestream Lead Technical Animator Jeremy Ernst, creator of the Animation and Rigging Toolkit, outlines the tool and gives us a preview of future updates. Lead Animator Jay Hosfelt accompanies us in conversation about how the A.R.T. is used in our production environments here at Epic. The A.R.T. has been discussed heavily in our forums, where Jeremy is highly active in support, updates, and the overall sharing of information. The toolkit is available for free to UE4 subscribers, located in the “Extras” folder of the engine install directory.
