Old Damaged Pillar

This video is targeted for both professionals and students.As a professional you will be able to learn efficient ways to keep your models high quality when it comes time to ship the game. As a student you will become exposed to professional techniques in the game industry.
Unreal Materials - An Introduction and Application
In this demonstration the instructor starts off by giving a detailed explanation of commonly used material nodes. Once the foundation is laid its on to creating several full materials using only a few textures. This tutorial is appropriate for artists on multiple skill levels. If you have never used a material editor you should be able to follow along and understand. Even if you are experienced using the Unreal 3 material editor, you should pick up useful information throughout the video.
Live Action and CG: Foundations
In this demonstration the instructor starts off by explaining the shot and then tracking the footage using Boujou. Once the live footage is tracked, its on to Maya to start blocking out the scene and incorporating CG elements. Everything from Ambient Occlusion, to Render Layers, to even Image Based Lighting is explained while in Maya. After all of the elements are rendered out of Maya, the last thing done is composing them together using Combustion and After Effects. This tutorial is perfect for those who want a solid foundation on how to take your 3D models and incorporate them seamlessly into Live Action video.
Unreal VFX - Material Transitions
In this demonstration the instructor starts off by explaining the nodes that will be used throughout the rest of the video. From there he goes into depth on how to create a material that can transition from one set of textures and parameters, into another. He also gets into how to make a character completely dissolve away. Once the materials are setup, the instructor goes into how to control them in Cascade, Kismet, and Matinee. While inside Matinee, you learn how to time the dissolve to match the animation, and also how to swap entire materials and allow the character to dissolve after he has transformed from stone to real life.
Next-Gen Texturing Techniques
In this demonstration the instructor starts off by explaining the very fundamentals of using Photoshop for texturing. From there he goes into depth on how to set up your high res and low res meshes for rendering Normal, AO, and other Maps.
Once the scene and basics have been defined it's on to the entire texturing process of the self contained scene. Everything from the Diffuse, to Spec, Normal, and even a little Emissive and Alpha Maps. The Main textures created are a Concrete Texture set, Wood, Cloth, Grass, Ground, and Metal. This video has almost 5 hours of teaching and demonstration that will serve as the ultimate texturing resource.
