Is there any way i can tweak the colors dynamically through another blueprint? I tried with the "get all actors of class" function and setting the colors of the clouds by a timeline, everything else connected to the timeline does its thing but the volumetric clouds wouldn't change. Are the properties somehow fix?

In this webinar, Johan Lithvall will cover his overall workflow and process, and the technical elements to create realistic rendered hairstyles for games.

In an effort to achieve realistic characters and digi doubles, whether for film or games, creating realistic and believable hair is a huge selling point. From helmet hairdos, to sparse hair cards, to detailed looking layered hair sculpts with splines & dynamics created in Xgen, studio artists are specializing in hair creation. After all, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and hair plays a huge role in defining that believability. In this next industry session, we’ll give you a better insight into that process. We’re happy to have Johan Lithvall, Hair Specialist, who was responsible for creating some of the amazing hairstyles for the main characters of the stunning game, Horizon Zero Dawn. Johan, not only created the hero assets, but established a pipeline for the hair creation, and educated outsourcing vendors in creating hairs and workflows. Johan will cover his overall workflow and technical elements to create realistic hairstyles. He’ll also briefly talk about his highly successful class, “Hair Creation for Games.” This will be an exciting session to look forward to!
