• UE4 Workshop Series Recap

    Fakultet elektrotehnike, strojarstva i brodogradnje FESB

    Nakon više od šest mjeseci i dvadeset održanih radionica, serijal tjednih radionica "Uvod u svijet Unreal Engina 4" je prošle srijede konačno završio. Čestitke i hvale svima koji su sudjelovali i naučili nešto novo, a posebno upornima koji su izdržali do kraja. Ako je nekome žao što je propustio radionice, bez brige jer ono što dolazi u slijedećih nekoliko mjeseci biti će još zanimljivije! Naime, na prijedlog (i oduševljenje) polaznika odluka je pala da nastavljamo s radionicama, ali umjesto da svaka radionica bude tema za sebe svi ćemo raditi na konkretnom projektu - na izradi zajedničke računalne igre. Tema igre koju ćemo napraviti na nadolazećim radionicama još nije određena, ali smo već čuli nekoliko zanimljivih prijedloga. Konačnu odluku ćemo donijeti zajedno na slijedećem meetup-u. Ako želite sudjelovati na ovom projektu na bilo koji način, imate ideju za igru, ili samo želite vidjeti iz prve ruke kako izgleda proces izrade računalne igre, dođite u srijedu 26. lipnja u 19h u PICS na FESB-u i opustite se u kreativnoj atmosferi splitske Unreal Engine user grupe. Vidimo se u srijedu u PICS-u! ------ After more than six months and twenty workshops behind us, the weekly workshop series "Introduction Into the World of Unreal Engine 4" finally ended last Wednesday. Congrats and thanks to all who participated and hopefuly learned something new, especially to the tenacious few who persisted to the very end. For anyone feeling bad about missing the series, don't worry because what's coming next is even better! As suggested by some of our members (to the excitement of all) we made a decision to continue with workshops but instead of each workshop having its own subject we'll concentrate our effort on a single project - making a community game. The theme of the game is yet to be decided but we already had some very interesting suggestions. Final decision will be made collectively on our next meetup. If you would like to participate in this project in any way, if you have a game idea, or you would just like to experience first-hand what the process of making a computer game really looks like, come on Wednesday the 26th of June at 7 PM to PICS at FESB and relax in the creative atmosphere of Split's Unreal Engine user group. See you on Wednesday in PICS!

  • Split's Unreal Engine Meetup

  • Second year of Split's Unreal Engine Meetup

    Fakultet elektrotehnike, strojarstva i brodogradnje FESB

    Druga godina splitskog Unreal Engine meetup-a Prvi ovogodišnji splitski Unreal Engine meetup će se održati u srijedu 20. veljače s početkom u 18h u prostorijama PICS@FESB uz potporu ICT županije. To je ukupno šesto takvo okupljanje od formiranja grupe prije godinu dana. Prosječno se održi jedno svaka dva mjeseca. A budući da smo u međuvremenu organizirali i Unreal Engine 4 radionice, meetup sada okuplja i nekoliko redovitih članova. Radionice su se proteklih mjeseci održavale jednom tjedno, a nastavljaju istim tempom od početka ožujka tj. nakon studentskih rokova. Dođite na meetup u srijedu i u opuštenoj atmosferi upoznajte domaću ekipu koja se bavi real-time računalnom grafikom, saznajte novosti iz svijeta Unreal Engine-a 4, pogledajte i isprobajte neke od proizvoda lokalne zajednice i razgovarajte s developerima koji su ih razvili. Vidimo se u srijedu na FESB-u. ------ Second year of Split's Unreal Engine Meetup First meetup of this year will be held on Wednesday the 20th of February starting at 6 PM in PICS@FESB venue (courtesy of ICT Županija). It will be the 6th meetup since we started a year ago. On average we meet once every two months. Since we also organized an Unreal Engine 4 workshop series, the group now has several regular members. In the past few months we had a workshop each week. We'll continue this pace starting from early March after student finals. Come to our meetup on Wednesday and meet some of the local real-time graphics developers, find out the latest news from the world of Unreal Engine 4, check out and try out some of the local community products and talk to the people who created them. See you on Wednesday at FESB.

  • Last chance to meet us in this year ;)

    Radionice s kojima smo započeli na prošlom meetupu napreduju odlično. Prva grupa polaznika je na dobrom putu da upiše još jednu vještinu u svoj životopis. Ali još važnije, polaznici će stečenim znanjem omogućiti sebi slobodu kretivnog izražavanja i pretvaranje vlastitih ideja u virtualna iskustva koja mogu podijeliti s drugima, moći će započeti vlastiti indie studio ili unaprijediti postojeće poslovanje. Sudjelovanje na cijelom setu radionica je besplatno. Do kraja ove godine održat će se još dvije radionice, u srijedu 12. i srijedu 19. prosinca s početkom u 17h, a prostor za održavanje radionica (PICS@FESB) osigurala je ICT Županija (https://www.ictzupanija.hr/). Dođite na meetup u srijedu 19. prosinca u 20h i saznajte što su polaznici savladali u prvih pet radionica, pogledajte njihove radove i poslušajte njihova iskustva. Vidimo se! --------------------------------------- Workshops we started at our last meetup are showing excellent progress. The first group of attendants are on a steady path to add another awesome skill to their resume. But more importantly they can use the knowledge to enable themselves the creative freedom for turning their own ideas into shareable virtual experiences, maybe start an indie studio, or improve their existing business. Taking part in the entire workshop series is free of charge. Two more workshops will be held this year, on Wednesday the 12th and Wednesday the 19th starting at 5 PM. The venue PICS@FESB is kindly provided by ICT Županija (https://www.ictzupanija.hr/). Come to our meetup on Wednesday the 19th of December at 8 PM and find out for yourself what were the attendants able to accomplish in the first five workshops, take a look at their work, and hear about their impressions first hand. See you on Wednesday!

  • Build Your UE4 Career in Split

    Fakultet elektrotehnike, strojarstva i brodogradnje FESB

    Dobre vijesti, ekipa, serijal tjednih Unreal Engine 4 radionica počinje upravo ovdje u Splitu u prostorijama PICS@FESB! I do sada smo imali radionice u sklopu meetup-a, ali iako je posljednja bila dovoljno kratkog trajanja i pravog sadržaja za raznoliku prisutnu publiku, svima je i dalje najveći izazov nedostatak poznavanja osnova i kvalitetnog uvoda u svijet Unreal Engine-a. E pa - prihvaćamo izazov! Za sve zainteresirane, serijal će početi idući tjedan u srijedu 7.11. u 17h u prostoru PICS@FESB. Sadržaj prve radionice biti će postavljanje Unreal Engine 4 radnog okruženja na Windows 10 i Ubuntu (radionicu će biti moguće pratiti i na Mac platformi) te kratak pregled UE4 Editor sučelja na primjeru jednostavne demo igrice. Cilj je napraviti radno okruženje koje ćete moći koristiti do kraja radionica, uočiti i riješiti potencijalne probleme, i potvrditi ispravnost okruženja kratkim testom. Serijal radionica se može savladati i samo praćenjem predavanja bez izvođenja praktičnog dijela na vlastitom računalu, ali naravno poželjno je imati mogućnost na licu mjesta isprobati sve što se pokazuje. (Preporučena konfiguracija računala može se naći na https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Recommended_Hardware) Sudjelovanje na cijelom setu radionica je besplatno, a detalje vezane uz raspored i logistiku moći ćete saznati na prvoj radionici u srijedu. Prostor za održavanje radionica (PICS@FESB) osigurala je ICT Županija (https://www.ictzupanija.hr/) Uobičajeni splitski Unreal Engine 4 Meetup će početi nakon radionice u 20h. Svi su naravno dobrodošli. Ovaj puta bez formalnog rasporeda, samo kratak osvrt na novosti, a nakon toga imate priliku brusiti svoje networking vještine. Vidimo se u srijedu iza ručka! ;) --------------------------------------- Good news everybody, a series of weekly Unreal Engine 4 workshops is starting right here in Split at PICS@FESB! So far we've been having workshops as a part of regular UE4 Meetup. Although our last workshop turned out to be just the right length and content for a very diverse audience present, the greatest challenge continued to be the lack of proper introduction into the world of Unreal Engine in native language. Well, challenge accepted! For all of you interested, workshop series starts on Wednesday (November 7) at 5 PM local, at PICS@FESB. Topic of the first session will be setting up the UE4 and workshop environment on Windows 10 and Ubuntu (it will also be possible to follow along on a Mac), a quick overview of UE4 Editor interface, and a simple demo game project. The goal is to get you up and running for the rest of the workshop series, resolve any potential issues, and test proof that you're ready to go. The entire series can be completed successfully without using a computer on site to follow the lectures but having one is of course preferable. (Please see https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Recommended_Hardware for hardware requirements) Attendance for the entire workshop series will be free of charge. Workshop venue PICS@FESB is kindly provided by ICT Županija (https://www.ictzupanija.hr/). Our usual UE4 Meetup will start after the workshop at 8 PM. Everyone is welcome of course. No special agenda just a short intro with news after which you get to brush up on those networking skills of yours. See you on Wednesday!

  • It's All About Networking

    Fakultet elektrotehnike, strojarstva i brodogradnje FESB

    After a short break UE4 meetup is back in town! Many wonderful things happened in the mean time; We organized an Unreal Engine developers mixer during Reboot Develop 2018 conference in Dubrovnik this April (thanks to the amazing Sjoerd De Jong), Unreal Engine 4.19 was released with many awesome new features (https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Builds/4_19), Unreal Fest Europe was held in Berlin, and a lot more... Come to FESB (Split) on Wednesday and hear all about it. Last time the workshop started late and lasted too long, only a brave few endured to the very end. Also, spring happened since then, so this time we change tactics. The news section and a small live demo will be kept as short as possible so we can all go rehidrate and do networking. ;) 18:00 - Lights On 18:15 - News 18:30 - Workshop: Stylized Soft Shadow Effect in Deferred Renderer 19:00 - Q&A / Discussion 19:30 - Lights Off 20:00 - Introductions and networking at a nearby coffee place Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday at FESB! ----------------------------------- Nakon kraće pauze Unreal Engine 4 meetup je ponovo u gradu! Mnoge odlične stvari su se dogodile u međuvremenu. U travnju smo organizirali druženje Unreal Engine developer-a za vrijeme Reboot Develop 2018 konferencije u Dubrovniku (hvala nevjerojatnom Sjoerd De Jongu), izašla je verzija 4.19 Unreal Engine-a s brojnim novim poboljšanjima (https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Builds/4_19), u Berlinu je održan Unreal Fest Europe, i još puno toga... Dođite na splitski FESB u srijedu i saznajte više. Prošli put je radionica počela prekasno i trajala predugo, samo su najhrabriji izdržali do kraja. U međuvremenu se dogodilo i proljeće pa ovaj put mijenjamo taktiku. Dio s novostima i mala radionica poslije njega biti će što je moguće kraći tako da se možemo čim prije rehidrirati u obližnjem kafiću i baviti se networking-om. ;) 18:00 - Lights On 18:15 - Novosti 18:30 - Radionica: Stilizirane sjene u odgođenom renderer-u 19:00 - Pitanja / rasprava 19:30 - Lights Off 20:00 - Upoznavanja i networking u obližnjem kafiću Veselimo se susretu u srijedu na FESB-u!

    Fakultet elektrotehnike, strojarstva i brodogradnje FESB

    A month flew by and it's time for our second meetup! Yay! A lot of great things happened in Unreal Engine development since the previous one, but great improvements happened in the Split UE4 community too. We now have a Discord server for the meetup. That's the place where, for example, the subject for this meetup's workshop was suggested and accepted. If you're wandering what the server is all about follow this link https://discord.gg/vnkfczd, join the discussion, and find out for your self. Thanks to the support from "ICT županija" project, we have a new venue for the meetup in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture (FESB) building in Split. Approximate agenda for the second meetup: 18:00 - Lights On 18:30 - Introductions 19:00 - Show and Tell 19:30 - Workshop: Simple HTML5 Example in UE4 21:00 - Lights Off Bring questions and enthusiasm as always and see you on Tuesday at FESB!

  • Just getting started

    WIP Coworking

    This will hopefully be a chance for everyone to introduce themselves, to talk about their experience with Unreal Engine, and to share a thought on what they would like to see and hear at future meetups. A kind of a show and tell for CG software fans, just to get things started. There'll be no special agenda but all the presentation tools as well as Unreal Engine workshop tools will be at our disposal so it just might get interesting. See you there. • What to bring Questions.
