Submitted Reviews for UE4 Fundamentals Vol.1

"This course helped me better understand how to use UE4 in work for level designers. I understood how effective work with grid and viewport, how to set dimension and proportion and a lot of other useful tips and tricks. The videos shot step by step, helped me better understand not only tools and possibilities of UE4 but the workflow of level designer's job. Alex explains how to use lighting, volumes, particles very detailing and understandable. English is not my native language, but I understood everything very well. Alex speaks very clearly and not fast that helps me perceive information automatically, without using translation. (By the way, my English level not high – Intermediate B1). So I truly recommend this course for everybody, checked on personal experience!" - Asiya B.

"I'm really enjoying your tutorial series. They're the best I've found that focus purely on the visual side of Unreal." - James L.

"If you value your time, then this is the one-stop-shop to learn the fundamentals of UE4. Alex clearly explained all that I needed to start building levels in UE4. In addition to focusing on what is important, he adds a lot of tips throughout that would otherwise be buried in the documentation. I don't constantly work with UE4 so I tend to forget some of the basics but all I have to do is open up these well-organized videos for a quick refresher and I'm back on the road again!" - Dan C.

"As a software developer of nearly 20 years, I was looking for a good way to "bootstrap" myself into UE4! I am halfway through Module 1 of UE4 Fundamentals and can't wait to dig into The Corridor Project!I love that you cover the basics, give suggestions on what you use personally and get those of us with zero experience using the UE4 interface a nice quick jolt in productivity. I look forward to getting a bit more proficient with the UE4 toolset so I can get prototyping and (hopefully!) building a couple VR concepts I have been kicking around." - Nate R.

"Very satisfied with the product and the honesty and courtesy of the author. I highly recommend it for novice and intermediate UE users. The latter will be able to tap into Alex's many years of experience as a professional. Very clear, step-by-step, introduction to Unreal Engine and level design, creation and pipeline. Alex explains, in a easy-to-follow fashion, how to start with UE, while warning you of the caveats, teaching the best practices for level creation. Every important aspect of level design is being covered, from level BSP blockout, through lighting, audio and blueprint basics, to a finished, polished asset. Though it will not cover detailed mesh asset creation, this teaching path will also advice you on how to best create UE optimized, static meshes. As well as explaining the software basics, level creation and some of the advanced features tool, Alex will guide you with many practical exercises in order to implement your learning, while giving you many tips throughout the entire course, about what to be aware of, in the entire process. 10/10" - Gaetano L.

The courses uses UE4 version 4.21. It is one of the latest versions of the engine. So you get to learn right from one of the most recent engine versions. Even if you are using versions later than 4.21 you can follow these tutorials without any problems. As versions go up the engine releases get more stable with less and less things moved around the interface.

This course works with UE4.24+

The difference in "UE4 Fundamentals" Vol.1 and Vol.2 is that they are completely separate courses.

It is like Volumes in a book. I am containing the Fundamentals of UE4 to different volumes, like a collection.

"UE4 Fundamentals Vol.1" shows how to get started and begin using UE4.

"UE4 Fundamentals Vol.2" is focused on creating landscapes and landscape materials. It is a brand new course focused on landscape essentials and it builds on the knowledge introduced in Vol.1.

"UE4 Fundamentals Vol.2" will show you EVERYTHING you need to know for how to create/sculpt landscapes and create/paint landscape materials entirely in UE4 without any external software.
