Unreal Engine for Filmmakers

Advanced Course


Course Intro & Information

This course will guide you through the creation of an entire scene primarily in Unreal Engine 4.27, with several lessons in Unreal Engine 5 and steps that transfer between both versions. Lessons range from setting up a landscape, using blend materials and vertex painting, all the way through building your scene, lighting it, adding volumetrics, compositing inside of Unreal Engine, and setting up your final render. For a full list of techniques covered, check the pricing table below.

The course is designed for anyone with basic knowledge of Unreal Engine to be able to pick it up and create a stunning scene using industry standard techniques. Given the instructor’s background in film, the course is geared toward filmmakers and walks through the entire process of creating a scene from scratch, as well as integrating your scene with live action footage. If you are unfamiliar with Unreal Engine, we recommend you take the Free Unreal Engine 5 Beginner Course before enrolling.

    Hi, If I purchase “Unreal Engine 5 for Filmmakers Bundle (Parts 1, 2, 3)”, do I need to buy “Unreal Engine for Filmmakers Advanced Course” ? I mean is there anything new in “Unreal Engine for Filmmakers Advanced Course” which is not available in “Unreal Engine 5 for Filmmakers Bundle (Parts 1, 2, 3)” ?

      Hello and thanks for your comment! The main difference between these two courses is that the Unreal Engine for Filmmakers Advanced Course is mostly focused on the scene building process, and covers a few more complex topics like Runtime Virtual Texturing, detailed landscape construction, and Path Tracing among others. It is also taught in Unreal Engine 4.27 primarily, but all the techniques used should translate well to UE5. The UE5 for Filmmakers Course covers the scene building process in slightly less detail, but goes into much more detail on rendering your scene from Unreal Engine with the best settings possible, as well as rendering with added tools for compositing, such as the z-depth pass, stencil layers, and cryptomatte. It also then covers how to use and access those tools, and how to composite using your Unreal Engine render and the tools you’ve exported with it. So they do cover some different subjects and each offer their own valuable information. If you are interested in purchasing both courses, there is a bundle available which gives you a significant discount here: https://boundless-resource.com/membership/ultimate-unreal-engine-for-filmmakers-bundle/

      Hope this is helpful and thanks again for your comment!

    Hi Sam,

    I bought the UE5 course, how do I go about getting the 4.27 advanced course? Can I still get the bundle price?


    • Sam Eisenhower

      Hello and thanks for your interest! Yes, you can still get the bundle price! I’ll send you an email with instructions for how to enroll at the discounted price. Cheers!

    Hi Sam! It looks like I am in the same camp as everyone else. I found the UE5 course and bought that bundle without seeing the advanced option. Can you email me an option to add the other for a discount?

    • Sam Eisenhower

      Hi Jason, yes I’ve just sent you an email!

    Does this course include project files or is everything used in the course going to be created from scratch? Neither the description above nor the promotional video answer that question.

    • Sam Eisenhower

      Hi Jim and thanks for your comment! Included are the main building assets used in the course, as well as the textures used. All other assets are downloaded from Quixel, which is free. The course is mainly focused on building the scene and creating the cinematic as well as compositing, rather than asset creation. Hope this is helpful and let me know if you have any other questions!
