This workshop is a hands-on introduction to shaders using Unreal’s node-based editor, aimed at folks interested in creating simple and fun effects to enhance their art assets without getting too technical. They’ll learn a few fundamental tricks that can be used on their own or combined for more complex results.
The shaders will be built purely with the visual editor, no coding involved. The knowledge acquired is easily transferable to other engines and tools such as Shader Forge, Amplify Shader Editor, Unity 2018 Visual Shader Editor etc.
Open to everyone of all genders!
We apologize but this venue is not wheelchair accessible.
