So today i will share with you my very first paid course that i call Learn Unreal Engine 4 for Filmmaking Beginners Edition. This course is for you guys out there who are wanting to try unreal engine for the very first time. In 1 hour and 40 minutes you will go from installing unreal engine 4 to exporting your very first animation in unreal engine 4.

Some of the topics we will cover will be the epic marketplace,importing animations,retargeting animations,manipulating cg in blender and reimport it back to unreal,working with cameras,using the cinematic sequencer,working with hair groom assets,ray tracing,movie render queue i mean i can go on and on.I covered alot of stuff in this short course. And best of all, we will not be using any blueprints whatsoever. Lastly, i tried my best to only use free assets so you guys can follow along but I did purchase an animation to use for this tutorial to spice things up and I bought hair as well but dont worry i used free animations too.

My name is Jae. I have a youtube channel called JSFILMZ where I have tutorials on Unreal Engine 4 & 5. I decided to start creating paid courses to teach people Unreal Engine 4 & 5 for filmmaking since majority of tutorials online for Unreal are for creating video games. I truly believe Unreal is the future and I want to give people the head start by creating videos here.
