Unreal Engine: Grey Kitchen - Tip of the Week

We are breaking down a scene from Archinteriors for Unreal Engine vol. 5

This scene comes from Archinteriors for Unreal engine vol. 5 collection, our latest collection of loft and home interiors for Unreal Engine 4. Collection consists of five scenes. It's gray kitchen in scandinavian style.

slice16_12

Our interior is surrounded by Lightmass Importance Volume (LIV) and Post-Processing Volume (PPV). LIV is used for speeding up light baking process, it focuses only on elements that are inside it, ignoring the rest. PPV is used for color grading and post-production. 

 

slice15_12

Lightmass Portals in windows work similarly to Light Portals in 3ds Max - they speed up rendering process.

 

slice14_13

View from viewport. Reflection Capture Spheres were placed according to taste, to achieve best looking reflections on nearby surfaces.

 

slice13_13

Environment was projected onto an editor sphere - an asset that can be found in "Engine Content" folder.

 

slice12_13

Directional Light settings. Not many things altered: we enabled bloom and light shaft occlussion and increased Light Source Angle to get softer shadows.

 

slice11_13

Rug and its Uvmap.

 

slice10_13

Table top unwrapped.

 

slice9_14

Table uv maps.

 

slice8_14

Lightmass settings - those are cranked up pretty high, so you may need to change them if your baking times are to long. Increasing Static Lighting Level Scale and decreasing Indirect Lighting Quality will help the most if it comes to speed of baking lightmaps, but, of course - the quality will be lower.

 

slice7_16

We placed some plants here and recreated materials in engine.

 

slice6_17

This material is an instance of our plant Base Material.

 

slice5_17

Our plant material has base color, multiplied with the other one (which is needed for example for leaf veins), we also use subsurface scattering and opacity mask.

 

slice4_17

Plant material, continued.

 

slice3_17

If you wonder how much impact for the final look can come from Post-Processing Volume, here is an example: Post Processing Volume is disabled.

 

slice1_16

...and now it is enabled: the most light comes with "Indirect Lighting Intensity" increased to 4,0.
