Class overview

This hands-on workshop provides an overview of Sequencer in Unreal Engine. Students will design a cinematic sequence by learning how to setup and organize their scene with level sequences, sub-levels and sub-scenes,  apply animation clips to imported characters, animate props by keyframing actors in the graph Editor,  edit shots in the timeline, and use specialized cinematic camera tools for more professional results. Students will render the final result into a movie through Sequencer’s render manager.
