My submission for the Winter Mimics challenge:
I wouldn’t call it done. This time I wasn’t able to reach my initial goal. I underestimated the ammount of work to create all the elements including research. However, it was totally fun to learn about elemental effects such as the snow storm and I’m very motivated to learn more in this field This challenge was a great opportunity to learn so many new techniques like postprocess, sequencer, laser and more.
Reference I used for my little scene, mine is slightly different (no zooming to the AT-AT foot as I didn’t have much time for research for stepping on the snow - like ground deformation etc.)
Star Wars: Episode V
The only thing that I created outside the engine are the binocular UI elements - I animated them in After Effects. At first I wanted to create everything in Unreal Engine, but I messed something up with my postprocess. For example, the black border wasn’t black anymore. For the amount of time given, I thought this was a faster approach, as I wanted to focus more on the snow storm.

One final detail: laser
