Epic to Host Unreal Engine User Group at SIGGRAPH 2017

Recommended Posts

Epic Games will host their first SIGGRAPH Unreal Engine User Group and party in Los Angeles on July 31, 2017 at the Orpheum Theatre from 4:30-9:00PM; more information and registration is available online.

The User Group will feature an exciting lineup of presentations -- from Epic Games Founder and CEO Tim Sweeney and Enterprise GM Marc Petit to companies as diverse as global architectural firm HOK, self-driving car start-up Zoox and animation production company Digital Dimension, among others. Customer presentations and third party integrations will underscore how Unreal Engine is transforming content creation across animation, feature film, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), architecture, and product visualization.

“These incredible customers are just a sample of those turning to Unreal Engine to create high quality, interactive content--whether for large-scale design visualizations, children’s animated TV shows, AR, VR or artificial intelligence applications,” said Marc Petit, Enterprise GM, Epic Games. “Visual fidelity in real time is what we’re known for--now we’re adding workflow tools that simplify pipelines considerably and we look forward to demonstrating them at Siggraph!”

Epic will showcase real-time productions, workflow tools, and interactive experiences at several events during this year’s Siggraph; from Real-Time Live!, to the VR Village, to the Computer Animation Festival, and much more. Highlights include:

  • DigiPro: Epic Games CTO Kim Libreri will keynote the DigiPro Symposium on July 29th at the Beaudry Theatre at Los Angeles Center Studios, where he will discuss “Real-time technology and the future of production”.
  • VR Film Jam: Throughout the Siggraph conference, Epic Games will coach the VR Film Jam where teams will convert animated shorts into interactive VR experiences.
  • Computer Animation Festival: This is the first year real-time production is represented and the only two real-time films being shown are both Unreal projects (

" rel="external nofollow">"The Human Race").

 

 

 

  • Meet Mike in VR: Meet Mike in VR is a state-of-the art digital human performance in virtual reality, powered by Unreal Engine. Spearheaded by FX Guide’s Mike Seymour as part of his PhD with the University of Sydney, this is a widely-supported global research project that is pushing hardware and software limitations to provide a glimpse into the future of photorealistic, character-driven real-time production.

      State of the search
      I'm not looking / I'm still looking
       
      Description
      It is a third person game where you join more players to fight against bosses in the PvE style of the mmorpg, looking for online companions to help you defeat your enemy, where everyone does their respective work, such as tank, dps or heal, in groups of 5 or 10 players.
      The difference with other mmorpg is that here, since there is no open world, you will not have to go through it doing hundreds of missions and using many hours to get to the content that really interests you, which, in the case of PvE, are the dungeons and raids.
       
      Objectives of the project
      For this project we will first make a demo that will only be the boss of a 5 player dungeon.
      The first phase of this project is to release a video gameplay for crowdfunding (kickstarter maybe), so we will focus more on the visual, which could be falsified if the mechanics do not work. If the crowdfunding gives green light would be the game, which if in turn would work would be updated in the future with more dungeons and bands. The ideal would be to make a playable demo.
       
      Compensation
      If this game generates benefits outside crowdfunding, the profits will be distributed depending on the work and disbursement of each one.
       
      Technology
      Unreal. If you want to learn how to use this software with the project, you can.
       
      Required profiles
      - At the moment 2 Programmers (if has multiplayer knowledge in Unreal better).
       
      - 1 2D Artist to make the interface design and some concepts. You are going to try make interfaces like this:

      It would be ideal if you can devote at least 7 hours by week.
      It is a plus if you have experience with high level PvE content in some mmorpg.
       
      Team structure
      Pablo. Environment artist.
      Diego. Character artist.
       
      Web
      Waiting until the equipment is assembled.

      pablo.barreto.jimenez@gmail.com
       
      Additional Information
      I have the GDD, it depends on the work but, I think the demo could be done in 6 months.
      Here I leave some images of what I did of the project in Unity, where basically I have been testing (The project will be done in Unreal):



       
      Desired feedback
      If you think you can give me some advice about the project, feel free to give your opinion.

      A developer I am working with has sent me a project that when packaged is in VR mode, however its not supposed to be. So when I package the project to windows in unreal engine 4, the screen is split in 2 as if its VR. Would anyone know how to get the project out of VR mode so that its just a 3D game? I have disabled VR  plugins and chekced through the project settinsg to untick any VR setting, but still not managed to get it out of VR mode.

      We are a growing team of hobbyists working on a small prototype for a horror game called Soulanity. We are working in Unreal Engine 4 and we need a few more members to help see this project to completion.

      All team members must be active on discord and willing to show up to team meetings.  You will need a good internet connection to download the project and any updates. Beginners are welcome, but you need to be motivated and capable of working independently. Any profits gained from our projects will be split evenly among the team.
      The positions we need:
      Level Designer – We have one level designer who has done an awesome job so far, but they don’t have as much time to work on the project anymore, so we need someone to help complete the map
      3D Artist – We still need 3d models for general props like books, tools, shelves, janitorial supplies, and some organic modeling for characters and the environment.
      Rigging/Animation – Still need animations for the player character, the main antagonist, and 2 smaller mobs.
      Unreal Engine Programmer – This game is currently entirely coded in blueprints. Most of the basic gameplay mechanics are complete but there is still much more to do.
       
      If you are interested in joining the team just add me on Discord and we’ll have a chat. Tibsun#1244

      Hello I am looking for a team who are willing to work on a Realistic, Large, Story-based, Open-World, Survival, Horror game. I'm looking for a team that is willing to stay with me through the whole project. 
      For this project I will be needing:
      3D Modeler: Somebody who has a good understanding on how to create 3D models through Blender, Maya, 3DS Max, or any other Modeling programs of their choosing Animator: Someone able to rig and animate humans, non-humans, and machines. Artist: Someone able to make art for loading screens, GUIs, and Cover art. Environment Artist (2-3): Someone able to create a large open world for the players to explore Writer: Someone who has experience writing story-lines and can write dialogue for this project Sound Engineer: Somebody who can create sounds for character movements, environment, and animals     Ideas for The Project: - Shipwrecked on an island after getting caught in a storm out on the ocean - Start on the boat with all your friends and a bunch of NPCs where the ship doesn't crash until you talk to the captain - Able to search wreckage to find food, water, and a basic tool. - Locked areas in the wreckage that you need special tools or codes to open. - Secret chests you can find on the island through maps that you can find in abandoned houses, shacks, and wreckage of pirate ships. - Fishing rods to go fishing for different kinds of fish. - Cooking system to cook food on a grill or campfire which requires propane tanks or wood to continue burning - Underwater and land caves with plenty of resources - Mutant bosses that you can fight above or under water - Underwater life (Sharks, Fish, Large underwater Squid boss)   These are just ideas they may or may not be implemented in the final product. Any feedback on ideas for the game would be appreciated.   We will be setting up a kickstarter for people to support this, if this project gets up going, so watch for that.

      I have seen a number of posts about this topic but was wondering what the most effective way is. I have been working on a project in unreal engine 4 and am struggling to get virtual reality mode to work in the engine. A route I am pursuing to solve the problem is to use the unity game engine. I have a virtual reality template set up in unity and need to export the project from unreal engine 4 into unity. Whats the best way to export the project from UE4 and than import into unity?  
    • By Cello Gaming
      I am developing my first game and I need help creating a proper character for ue4. If anyone is willing to help, please contact me on my discord: TooCoolCello#0633
      any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

      What Is This Game About?:

      The game is called “The Standing” And is similar to Resident Evil Biohazard And Outlast, I have been speaking with some horror devs who know how to scare a player, not just jumpscares, but atmospheres, horror build ups and then nothing happens, extreme silence, I have done ALOT of research on horror, The Game will be developed in unreal engine

      STORY:

      After a deadly virus plunges the world into chaos killing 85% of the human population there are now what they call “zones” these zones are watched very closely by the surviving government, people are checked every day for the virus, even if you touch the spit or any human waste or fluids of the victim who is infected, you will die. But one day, people in the west zone start to go missing, 1 woman goes outside the walls to uncover the mystery, is there more to the virus than meets the eye?, That is where your story starts.

      My Role:


      I’m the game designer/lead/Director, I will be managing the project along the way, this project isn’t that big imo however i will make sure it’s a awesome experience! Hopefully you will stick around afterwards,

      What We Need And Requirements:

      At the moment it’s a really small team, however that’s why I’m on here! To grow the team! So heres some people we need!

      - Unreal Engine Programmers (Must Know C++ And Be Able To Adapt To Other Engines (For Future)

      - 3D Modellers (Organic And Hard surface)

      - Animators 

      - Other (Please Specify When Contacting Me)

      It would be even more helpful if you show your portfolio.

      Hello!
      I am seeking a few team members to help me run some survival sandbox game servers through a 3rd party hosting site. My goal is to replace "official" servers in the sense that our servers offer the best experience for players of all types (not easy to do!). Why do I need a team for this? Because the game we are working with has far more potential than most people realize - it is my hope that I can bring a better ruleset to the table that focuses more on fun-factor than a genre label.
      My end-game goal is to run quite a few long-term small MRPG servers across multiple games/platforms (platforms of course based on availability of supported server hosting). Personally, I see multiplayer and co-op gamers gravitating towards a more personal experience with small, MRPG servers, as opposed to something like an MMORPG.
      Current Progress:
      Design Document
      Server Patch Notes
      A little about me:
      I took 6 years of high school and have zero college education Zero game/software development experience Hate math, can't code, also can't create any type of art assets Musician of almost 30 years Work on songwriting and music production in a metal band based in my region Only have hobbies for things I'm passionate about, have had some success professionally, with more to come Can I build a toaster, no, but I can tell you exactly how it should work without confusing you That being said, I have made a lot of progress this year on my own - and currently have one server up and running. I am at a point now where I need to construct a small team to help me get my other servers up and running, as well as adding/creating custom content. 
      Currently looking for:
      1-2 x Mod Developers 1 x Server Administrator You must have access to the game we are running our server on, as well as any other tools that are needed to get the job done (like Unreal 4 engine, software development tools, etc.)
      I am more than willing to provide information as requested for anyone interested!
      Thank you for your time,
      Helgraves
