FAQ

Frequently asked questions. Click on each tab to read more.

The courses uses UE4 version 4.22. The course tutorials will work in later version of UE4 as well. This includes the latest version 4.24+

These new 4.24+ landscape features are enhancements that add to an already existing landscape toolset.

If you don't know how to use the existing UE4 landscape tools already (Sculpt, Paint and Material creation) - the new features won't be much of use to you. Because you still have to know how landscapes are created, how landscape sizes work, how to sculpt and modify your landscapes, how to create materials and how to paint textures.

I don't cover the new landscape features in the course BUT I am going to release a tutorial series for free which will be coming out right after the "UE4 Landscape Essentials" course. I am currently working on these videos as we speak. These will improve your workflow in UE4 even more. And you will actually know how to implement new features quickly because you'll know how to create landscapes after going through the course.

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.

Yes if: if you have never used Unreal Engine 4 before then you should go through "UE4 Fundamentals Vol.1" to learn how to use the engine.

No if: if you have some experience with Unreal Engine 4, even if it is very basic, then you will be fine without having to watch "UE4 Fundamentals Vol.1".
