"The course is meant to be watched in order as it gradually introduces more concepts, settings, and techniques with each new video building on top of the previous. Start off easy and build your skills through exciting project-based lessons. Walk away with finished FX you can immediately use inside your Unreal Engine level, post on Artstation, or add to your reel."
