TESTIMONIALS

What Students are Saying

"Myself and my business partner are loving every second of it. John makes Unreal feel so easy to learn. Too often with other courses or YouTube channels you follow what they say and then realize you don't actually know how to do those things. It's the opposite with John's course."

- Cherie

"I freaking love the clarity in the way John communicates the lessons. The Getting Started course really set me forward after so many previous failed attempts. It just makes sense! Big thank you!! I already sent the link to 3 of my friends who are just now getting into Unreal."

- Joseph

"John Waynick is a highly talented, trained, and professional instructor and has been using Unreal for a very long time. I took his Unreal Class and I was very much impressed with the class and what was taught in such a short amount of time. I recommend taking his courses. You will learn so much."

STILL GOT QUESTIONS?

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this course for?

This course is designed for anyone who can benefit from the content within, including but not limited to:

-Anyone who has zero experience with Unreal to get started and hit the ground running.

-Anyone who has been struggling through trying to learn Unreal on their own, has grown tired of the jumbled mess that is YouTube, and is looking for a more structured and straight to the point training.

-Anyone who knows some, but wants to know more about a particular topic (ie: Materials or Blueprint)

-Anyone who has industry experience but just started a new job using Unreal and wants to get up and running FAST.

How long do I have access to the course?

The course is a lifetime membership! Once you've purchased the course, you'll have access to it any time you wish.

Is there a subscription fee?

No! The Unreal Engine Pro course is a one time fee (divided up over time when on a payment plan). There are no recurring fees, no subscriptions, and no surprises. Once you've paid, your in. There are no more fees.

Do I need to be a [insert tech or artist role here] before starting the course?

Absolutely not! While being an environment artist certainly helps on the layout side, or being a programmer helps on the Blueprint side, the course makes no assumption on what you already know. The course is designed to turn a beginner into a competent layout artist or budding game developer, just as it can turn an existing 3D artist into an Unreal Environment Artist or turn a software engineer into an Unreal Blueprint Ninja.

This course is designed to get you up and running with Unreal Engine FAST, regardless of where you are coming from or where you are headed.

How much does Unreal Engine cost?

Unreal Engine is FREE! The first video in the course covers downloading and installing the launcher that will allow you to install the version of Unreal that you want to use. All free!

Do I need other software to take the course?

No other software is needed to learn how to use Unreal Engine with this course. That said, it helps to have a 3D modeling package like Maya or Blender, an image editor like Photoshop, and a texture painter like Substance Painter. But if you're at the point where you'll actually need these for the kind of work that you'll be doing with Unreal, then you probably already have them and know how to use them. If you don't though, don't worry! This course specifically is all about Unreal!
