For Unreal Engine project creation, first, you have to click on the launch button
An interface shown in the below image will be opened. As we discussed earlier unreal engine is not only for games, you will be having other industry options to choose from. Click on the games and then the next button.
The next screen shows many readily available projects, you can either choose one from that or create an empty project. Select your choice appropriately and click on next.
The next page will have the project settings where you can choose whether you want Blueprint or C++. This page will show you the graphics option/ Raytracing feature and the target to start with.
Before choosing Raytracing and Maximum Quality options, check your graphics card capacity, this will affect your Unreal Engine performance.
The default image appears on the game screen when the project is created initially. On your first open project, you will get a short tutorial by clicking the “blue hat” icon on the top right portion of the screen.
Unreal Engine Interface
The Unreal Engine interface is customizable according to your requirement. As a start, you can focus on a default interface. This will be very simple to start with.
You will be having a set of buttons, which you can make use of
Tab Bar and Menu Bar – Similar to the web browser, where you can see different tabs that you are making use of.
Unreal Engine Toolbar – It has many items listed below for you to choose from and even has a play button to preview the game.
Unreal Engine Viewport – It has a wide area where we will use this space for game development. You can use your mouse and the WASD keys to navigate from one place to another.
Unreal Engine Details – In this panel, you can see all the information about the current item that you are working on. You can add the rendering features, lighting, and other components, and scripts here.
Unreal Engine World Outliner -Here, you will find all the actors present in your play scene. Rather than looking for actors on the playing field, you can select them here and make the necessary changes.
Mastering the entire interface will depend on experience and time. For this, you should try to develop a lot of projects. This is the best way to gain experience with Unreal Engine.
