Course overview Course overview

Course Overview

Learn game animation with the help of a seasoned pro! In this course, students will learn the key workflow elements to migrate animations from Maya to Unreal Engine 4—the standard workflow for game animation studios! Students will bring an animated character to life and be able to control the character with a game controller or keyboard—just like a real playtest! Students will create believable character cycles with weight and personality to keep gameplay engaging; they will also experiment with how their animation plays within an actual game engine and navigate their animated characters through an obstacle course with a game controller--and see their work come to life in gameplay instantly! This class is designed for animators with a basic understanding of body mechanics who are eager to learn the essential game animation workflow used in the studios.
