Unreal Engine comes with a big box of tricks and effects to enhance animation. Using the engine’s core tools like Blueprint and Niagara, you can tweak the behavior of people, animals, vehicles, and environmental objects to bring some of life’s unpredictability to your scenes.

In this webinar, Matthew Doyle, Technical Artist at Epic Games, will dive into how to use animation tools in Unreal Engine to tell a story and add life to your projects. He’ll be joined by Daniele Federico, CEO and Co-Founder of Toolchefs.com, who will demonstrate how to use the Atoms Crowd framework to populate city streets with animated crowds that wander around, stop, and avoid each other in a random, realistic way.  

You’ll learn about:

> Adding animation effects to doors, vehicles, and materials

> Populating a city using a standalone crowd framework designed to handle large amounts of animation data

> Using dynamics and physics to create different effects
