Junior Evangelist Roman Perezogin is joined by Senior VFX Artist Viktor Ikkes for a deep dive into CRYENGINE’s Particle Editor.
Learn how to use the Particle Editor for a range of different and diverse functions in episode 12 of the CRYENGINE Summer Academy. The CRYENGINE Summer Academy is a series aimed at newcomers to CRYENGINE and those with some game dev experience, using a platforming game called Breeze as a learning aid. If you’re new to the series, we have listed all episodes released so far below.
Junior Evangelist Roman Perezogin is joined by Senior VFX Artist Viktor Ikkes for a 90-minute in-depth presentation and discussion about how you can use CRYENGINE’s powerful and flexible Particle Editor for a wide range of different effects and functions, including some unexpected ones! The video covers many of the particles that you can see in Breeze were created, including the falling leaves and wind effect on the sea. The discussion goes much further, presenting a range of other implementations, including how you can use the Particle Editor to create fur for a cat! The video includes practical workflows used in Breeze and will arm you with a wealth of knowledge about how you can use the Particle Editor to great effect in your own projects.
