Tutorial Series Creating a Realistic Ocean in UE4 Renders

I have just released a full series 7 hour walkthrough of creating Ocean materials and particle effects in UE4 on Flipped Normals :)


Let’s open the floodgates for Game Art Effects! In this series, you’ll be introduced to the fundamentals of using dynamic materials and particles to bring your environments to life, in this case with water and ocean effects. The first half of this series features a full walkthrough of building elements of an ocean shader both in a stylized and realistic fashion. The second half consists of building the elements of particle material systems and showing how to use dynamic features of particles in Unreal Engine to create an artistic performance with your effects.

By the end of this course, you will have gained an understanding of effects based materials and particles and will know how to build a flexible dynamic system for your own scenes. This fundamental understanding will help open the doors for more opportunities to create and use stunning game art effects in your portfolio.
