Learn to use the incredibly powerful Unreal Engine 4 by applying the fundamentals of Unreal's Blueprint system to create a fully interactive experience from scratch. Software required: Unreal Engine 4.14.
Learning to develop your own games can be an incredibly rewarding experience, however, mastering all aspects of a specific game engine can prove to be a challenge. In this course, Unreal Engine 4 Blueprints Fundamentals, you'll learn the fundamental concepts of Blueprinting including Unreal's node system. First, you'll learn how to implement nodes in various functions and events to drive simple game logic. Additionally, you'll be introduced to a couple of intermediate concepts to demonstrate how interfaces and inheritance can be easily integrated into any project. Finally, you'll explore some recommended programming practices which will help you streamline your development. By the end of this course, you'll have a strong fundamental knowledge and understanding of Blueprints, allowing you to create your own game logic and begin your development journey. Software required: Unreal Engine 4.14.
Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Rob and welcome to my course Unreal Engine Four, Blueprint Fundamentals. I'm the lead programmer at a newly founded AR and VR innovation studio. Learning to develop your own games can be incredibly rewarding and what better place to start than one of the most powerful, yet user-friendly engines available. This course is an introduction to the Unreal Engine's incredibly flexible visual scripting system Blueprints. Some of the major topics we'll cover include the different types of variables and nodes that you'll be working with most often, creating functions and events to drive game logic and interactions, creating custom dynamic materials, and we'll be taking a look at some of the recommended programming practices which will help you streamline your development with efficient programming approaches. By the end of this course you'll have a fully playable first-person puzzle game, along with the knowledge and understanding of Blueprints to create your own game logic and begin your development journey. I hope you'll join me in the Unreal Engine Four, Blueprint Fundamentals course at Pluralsight.
