The emphasis will be on creating the environmental building of Batman vs Superman. As you work through the process, you will understand the theory of blueprints. Students will learn how to get the most out of the various tools to get the best results.
By the end of the course, students will learn the pipeline on creating a Hero Building and the substructures encompassing it.
You will learn how to create film quality environments, lighting, and atmospherics, plus how these skills translate in the real world on a stage volume. Starting with worldbuilding, you'll create landscapes using Unreal and QuadSpinner Gaea before moving on to advanced texture blending, auto materials, and water systems. Next, you'll look at all lighting, VFX, and the post-process volume to bring your scene to life. You'll understand how to work with cameras, rigs, lights, and digital humans to create a compelling scene for your portfolio.
