Opening Unreal File from file icon

  • To bypass Unreal Launcher, you can double-click the file and specify which app to open:
  • C/Programs Files / Epic Games / UE_4.0 / Engine / Binaries / Win64 / UE4Editor

Migrating Folder to your Master Project

  • Right Click “Content” on your content browser and “Migrate” your file to your master Project file

Studio Environment

Open Studio Environment Level

  • In this level, you can test different materials
  • Test several Materials in this level
  • Use this Level to render 5 objects

Material Instances


  • 3D Models have Normals, which is surface direction and strength
  • In Rhino, you can check the normal by typing “dir” and click to change normal direction
  • When the surface direction is not the right way, unreal won’t show the material
  • If that’s the case, edit the material and change the material to 2-sided material

Importing Background image

Use Rhino’s “Pictureframe” command to import image to your background save and import to your file.
