Unreal Engine 4 is a vast and powerful tool which makes making games fun! But, as any complex piece of software, it might be challenging to start learning it. It is not because of a lack of the documentation or tutorials, but because of, ironically, the huge amount of them! Try to search for a UE4 tutorial on youtube. The number of results is overwhelming! Where to start?
During my learning process I was digging around, searching for a perfect, well explaining tutorial which will introduce me to the world of the UE4. I was trying to even do my own series, which didn’t end bad, but it’s far worse than I’d like to. This article will mostly show the collection of the best learning materials I was able to find, so you won’t have to go through the same issue I had.
What is quite interesting, most of the materials are the official tutorials, made by Epic crew. Big applause for taking such a good care for the new adventurers!
UE4 is, of course, a very big tool and it contains many instruments. You can spend years for mastering the material editor, or particle editor, or the animation system only. I will show materials telling how to easily jump into the making simple games without knowing every detail of the engine. It will be an entry point. Mastering the tool is a different story.
