Learn how to create an UE5 scene inspired by The Witcher game

What you'll learn
Create an environment from scratch on UE5
Create next-gen trees
Create multiple optimized shaders
Create different vegetation type on Speedtree 9

Owning a computer with Windows 10 (64Bits) / Not tested on Windows 11
Winrar or 7zip to decompress files
The basics of Unreal Engine

During this course I will show you how to create a scene inspired by The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.The goal of this course is to show you, step by step, how to create an inspired environment from scratch.From the creation of the vegetation with Speedtree 9 to the final composition on UE5.1. We will see the creation of textures with Quixel Mixer, terrain to dress the background of our scene with Gaea (optional) and we will create all the necessary shaders to get the maximum quality. And we will finish with the 4k renders with the Movie Render Queue. More details below.What I will learn?In Speedtree 9:Create serval Next-gen trees with hybrid logic (structure with Nanite and foliage with common LODs/Imposter)Create 3d branches to use as texturesCreate an atlas to combine several parts in a single textureCreate ground foliage models optimized for realtime rendering.In UE5:Complex shaders for trunk, foliage, terrain & Megascans assets.Advanced terrain shader with distance blend texture, Parallax Occlusion Mapping, RVT, automatic logic and spawn foliage with mask.Complete composition (Procedural Placement, lighting, vfx...)Create renders with the Movie Render QueueIn Quixel Mixer:Create multiple advanced textures with and without animated puddles in UE5Export with the correct packed texturesIn Gaea:Create some terrains used to dress the background of our sceneExport masks to use them for texturing in UE5In Photoshop:Replace colors of some texturesEnhance the qualityCombine masksWhich chapters are available?Aspen Trees (Complete Creation) - (7h26)Bark & Foliage advanced Shader - (2h35)Pine Trees (Complete Creation) - (6h55)Variations & Saplings for Aspen & Pine - (3h)Complex Landscape Shader & Quixel Mixer Textures (UE5.1) - (4h47)Ground Foliage (Speedtree 9) - (7h25)Scene Creation (Part 1) - (2h52)Distant Terrain + Shader (Gaea / UE5.1) - (1h10)Megascans Advanced Shader (UE5.1) - (1h05)Scene Creation (Part 2) (UE5.1) - (7h27)Decals Shader (UE5.1) - (51m)Adding Wind on Foliage (Speedtree 9 / UE5.1) - (1h24)Simple Particles (Ambient Dust / Moving Pollen...)
