Making of Unreal Bedroom - Tip of the Week

We are analyzing nice bedroom from Archinteriors for UE vol. 3.

This scene was created in two versions. One was for 3ds Max, which appeared in Archinteriors vol 45. We also have a tutorial for that version: Making of Cosy Bedroom. After releasing this collection we came with the idea to create nice set of interiors for Unreal Engine users and push the limits to the top when it comes to realistic rendering in game engine. This way we created an entire new collection of scenes - Archinteriors for UE vol. 3. This is one of four scenes that is included in this collection.

First light source is directional Light.

Directional light settings

 

slice1_8

Our scene in Unreal Engine. One of characteristics of game engines are reflection probes that are used to generate believable (although fake) reflections for scene elements. Positioning and sizing of reflection probes is a process of trial and error and generally - the matter of taste.

 

slice22_6

We made an animation of this scene for promotional purposes. All cameras were placed and moved within the engine and we decided to leave the final sequences and their elements in the scene, for educational purposes. Here you can see level sequence that was used for a short close-up shot of a chair. It's very simple - just a camera track with keyframes for position and rotation and Camera Cut track.

 

slice23_6

The sequence from previous image is a part of Master sequence, consisting of 3 sub-sequences.

 

slice21_6

Sequence export settings: 60 frames per second in HD resolution, PNG files (loseless). These files will go into video editing software later.

 

slice20_6

Our file has two levels (or maps). One is the room that is a final scene and the second is an overview scene that serves as a menu of items that were used in the project.

Overview scene - close up

 

slice19_7

Book texture: The most of materials are based on "Base material", so we can work with instances (which is faster and easier to iterate with textures, if we want to change something, etc.)

 

slice18_7

A texture of a plane that is mimicing building behind the window

 

slice17_7

Building facade material

 

slice16_7

Base material overview. Looks like a big fish, but really it is not THAT complicated.

 

slice15_7one node that is used to ind

For example - metallicUV_scale node is controlling UV scale, we also have a node that is used to place texture in material instance, another node controls contrast of this texture and another one: amount of metallic texture.

 

slice14_7

A chair and its UVs

 

slice13_7

Floor has seven separate materials with color variations.

 

slice12_7

Sphere Reflection capture settings. Here you can control influence radius of the sphere and its overall contribution to the scene.

 

slice11_7

In Project settings > Rendering you tweak reflections quality - use Reflection Capture Resolution box for that.

 

slice8_8

The only light except direct light is a small point light inside.

 

slice7_9

The whole scene is surrounded by LightStudio Sphere, settings on the right.

 

slice6_9

LightStudio sphere settings, continued.

Really helpful, output looks spectacular. Could you guide us on how you created the LightStudio Sphere Blueprint as it's not a pre-implemented bp. Understanding about the BP would be great as it's controlling the atmosphere of the scene. Thanks.

Hi, denniscg. I will make some screenshots about that soon :)
