I became a lot more confident and fluent with the material editor in unreal. The fundamentals were made clear to me and I’m glad I took the course. Hugh was very helpful and responsive to questions.
By answering my questions mostly. ^^ Also, since Hugh have experience in the field, he can say why he’s doing something, good practices, gotchas, ect. It was also an amazing introduction to PBR.
My knowledge definately improved after this course in material and shading part. I really liked the way Hugh explain every material nodes process.
Concepts carry over to Unity, 2d shaders, and vfx work I do at my job. Helped with communicating with graphics engineers.
I know much more about shaders than before. I am not afraid of making one like I was before. He (Hugh) is a great professional.
