TUTORIAL

Discover Unreal Engine: Your first steps guided by Epic Games

In this session James Butcher, from the Epic Games training team, will take you through your first hour with Unreal Engine. James will guide the class as we work our way through the basics of the user interface and the essential features of the engine, and by the end of this course you’ll be able to create your first projects with more confidence.

Overall this session will be a great way for the DSC community to get more familiar with Unreal Engine, and to help smooth out the initial learning curve with respect to using such a powerful and flexible development platform.
