Creating A Traditional Chinese Environment In Unreal Engine 5

by Aniket Rawat in Training

Hello everyone and welcome to this new course. In this course, we will go over the entire process of creating a Traditional Chinese Room Environment using Unreal Engine 5, Blender, Substance Painter.

We will go over modelling in Blender, texturing using Substance Painter and setting up the scene, lighting, and materials in Unreal Engine 5.

You will get:

1. 33 Full HD video lectures with over 11+ hours of content and AUDIO commentary.

2. All the files related to the course including .blend files, unreal project files, substance files, reference images, textures etc.

SOFTWARES USED - (BLENDER, Substance Painter, Unreal Engine 5):

All the modelling will be done in Blender, However, the techniques used are universal and can be replicated in any other 3D modelling package. The materials and textures will be created using Substance Painter. Level art, lighting and composition will be done in Unreal Engine 5.

In this course, you will learn everything you need to know to create the final results that you see in the images and trailers. The same techniques can be applied to almost any type of environment.

This course has over 11 hours of content! (All the videos have audio commentary)

We will go over every step in this course together and nothing will be skipped. The course does not have any kind of timelapse so that you can follow every step easily.

We will start by gathering some reference images to gain some initial ideas and the mood for our scene. We will arrange these reference images in a free program called Pure Ref. After this we will move on to Blender and start modelling our main assets. We will start by modelling things like the Writing Table, Chairs, Shelfs and all the different props in our scene, the entire process of modelling will be covered in Blender only.

After we have modeled all our main assets, we will UV Unwrap and export them to Substance Painter to start the texturing process. We will learn to create high quality and realistic materials and the key features of Substance Painter like Smart Masks, generators, smart materials etc.

After this we will import all our models and textures into Unreal Engine and set up the scene over there. The next step would be to set up our lighting and create a mood and atmosphere for our scene. We will use the new features of Unreal Engine such as Lumen to get realistic lighting for our scene and set up a Post-Processing volume to further enhance our scene's visuals.

Then we will spend some more time creating a lot of small props to further detail the scene even more like some Vases, Lamps, Tea Pots etc. We will end this course by adding a couple of props from Quixel Megascans to give the environment a finishing touch, setting up different camera angles and taking high resolution screenshots for our portfolio.

So, I hope to see you there in the course, thank you.

Who is this course for?

Students that have basic knowledge of modelling, texturing and want to learn how to create environments. Everything on this course would be explained in detail but some prior knowledge of the software would be helpful.
