COURSE OVERVIEW
COURSE OVERVIEW
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
EXPAND ALL COLLAPSE ALL

The more you know, the better.

Week 1 | Organic Designer tiling material

In this week, we will create a reference pack for our material. We will create all aspects of the organic material including; height, normal, roughness and diffuse. The homework assignment will be to recreate your own version from the tutorial or choose your own material to create from scratch

Week 2 | Vertex blend shaders

In this week, we will start with an introduction to Unreal Engine 4, correctly exporting and packing texture channels from Designer and creating vertex blend shaders. We will learn how to build master materials and tweak the parameters for a project use case. We will polish and refine our results until we have a great shader. We will utilise the materials we have already created to get great looking results. The homework will be to recreate your own shaders.

Week 3 | Create Final Blend Material

In this week, we will start by sourcing reference. We will create another transition material and revisit our previous designer file to expose parameters. We will demonstrate the variations you can create from one material showing the power of Substance. We will then work on our final blend material before rendering the result in Marmoset. The homework will be to create your own final blend material and create compelling final renders.
