Teens: 3D Game Development: Character Design & Modding with Maya® & Unreal™
Create Your Own 3D Video Game Characters Using Maya® and the Unreal Engine™
Students design their own 3D video game characters using Autodesk® Maya® and the Unreal™ Development Kit (UDK) – the same powerful cutting-edge programs that top developers use to create blockbuster games like Gears of War™ and Uncharted 3™. These programs will give you the power to develop characters with the same amazing detail as on the PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One®.
Develop your own custom character design, create it in Maya® and bring it to life and into the game using the UDK. Experience a whole new level of game playing. Students continuing from other DMA courses have the opportunity to place their characters into their level designs – creating a completely new game.
