Agenda

6:00 PM: Welcome

6:30 PM: Quixel & Landscapes Tech Demo

In this webinar, I'll show you how to create a photorealistic nature environment in UE 4.25 using procedural tools and photogrammetry assets from Quixel. I'll share a template project before the event if you would like to follow along. We'll start by creating a landscape with a dynamic material, set up Quixel Bridge for quick and easy importing, populate the scene with photogrammetry assets, and incorporate a procedural foliage volume to automatically place foliage assets.

7:30 PM: Virtual Hangout
