Luos's (ue4)VFX Tut's, Vids, & free content


#1

Hey fellow vfx-ians, I decided to just make one thread for all the vfx related stuff I made over the years. Keeps the forum cleaner, and makes it easier to manage.

Most of the content I will post is related to UE4, often using 3dsmax and photoshop in the process.
I still feel like a small fish in this pond filled with all these amazing vfx artists, but I do think I have learned quite a lot over the years and enjoy sharing this with others.
I also occasionally give away free content, material functions, and other vfx related content.

You are free to comment, ask questions, question my work, or suggest small tips and tricks I should make videos about. I welcome it.

But lets get to the actual content now shall we? :slight_smile:
