Traditionally celebrated for game development and cinematic creations, its power has not gone unnoticed by architects and archviz artists. ArchAdemia proudly introduces its Unreal Engine Interior Training, a comprehensive guide tailored to leverage this behemoth for architectural brilliance.

The Unreal Engine’s prowess goes beyond mere rendering. Its Lumen global illumination and advanced path tracing capabilities redefine the standards of architectural visualization. They bring spaces to life, infusing them with realism that’s almost tangible. But, how does one harness this power? That’s where ArchAdemia steps in.

Why ArchAdemia?

Syllabus

Lesson 1 – Introduction and Modelling (6:10). In this lesson we discuss what’s in store and provide an overview of the modelling process, complete with some best practices.

Lesson 2 – Datasmith Export & Import (17:04). This lesson walks you through how to export from SketchUp and then import into Unreal Engine using Datasmith. We also explain some best practices in both programmes, while we’re there.

Lesson 3 – Lighting (10:15). Here we setup a full environmental lighting rig, including a sun light, sky light, atmosphere, volumetric clouds and a subtle hint of fog. In Unreal Engine as you make changes to your main sun light all of the other lights follow suit as it would in real life, it’s amazing!

Lesson 4 – Post Process Volume (14:55). This needed a full lesson of it’s own as it’s so important in affecting the quality of your global illumination, reflections, colour grading, shadows … Pretty much everything you’re looking at! So, sit back and enjoy how this amazing little box can transform your scenes!

Lesson 5 – Texturing Part 1 (35:36). Here, we populate the scene with stock materials mainly from Quixel Megascans, which is built into UE5 as standard! This lesson is a showcase of how quickly you can add textures to a scene, especially if setup correctly within your modelling software; ie. assigning basic colours to different elements, ready for replacement in unreal engine.

Lesson 6 – Texturing Part 2 (40:58). In this lesson we go through some techniques to create bespoke textures if the ready made libraries from Quixel and other sources aren’t quite doing it for us.

Lesson 7 – Importing High Quality Assets (26:32). A crucial part of realistic rendering is the assets you use to populate a scene. This lesson goes through all of the options available to you to maximise the quality of your shots.

Lesson 8 – Cameras (47:30). This lesson starts with a final option for importing assets into your scene and swiftly moves into setting up cameras for maximum realism!

Lesson 9 – Rendered Stills (39:45). Using Unreal Engine’s amazing, in-built, rendering engine called the Path Tracer we explain how you can render various still shots for realistic results.

Lesson 10 – Animation (17:24). We round off the course with the basics of animating cameras for path traced and ray traced rendering.
