Weekly Twitch Recap

By Chance Ivey

Many of you have asked for official Unreal Engine branding resources for use with your games, and now you can download them from our Logos and Branding page. Also, we announced an offering of free subscriptions to students as part of GitHub’s Student Developer Pack. If you’re a student, head over to GitHub to get your pack today!

Senior Technical Artist Jon Lindquist gave us a new presentation on mesh particle transforms, and talked through a number of tips and techniques used to leverage some of UE4’s advanced features with Senior VFX artist Tim Elek. Follow along as they cover morph targets, mesh emitters, vertex shading, and the pivot painter tool. Download Jon’s presentation here.
