Intro To Models for Unreal Engine 4 - Page 1
Unreal gives you access to brushes where you can craft the roughing out of a level that is sometimes refered to as "gray blocking". This is where a designer lays out the level and figures out the gameplay before it goes to an art team to properly model and create assets.
You will need to install the latest version of UE4 4.25.x by downloading the Epic Games Launcher. You will also need a GitHub account which is free to sign up for as we will be using version control. You will also need a mac or PC that is powerful enough to run unreal. If you are on a PC you will have to download and install git (on a mac it may prompt you to install git as well but you can do it through the terminal). We will also install Github Desktop as it provides a GUI interface so you don't have to worry about command line. Once git is installed you will also need to download and install the Git LFS (Large File System) as well for both PC and mac. You will also need access to Maya 2020..
