Today I am gonna show you how I created the animation BRUTALISM 101. It's industrial / minimal / ambient / psychodelic look at Akira Sakamoto Architect & Associates corridor. It is a proof-of-concept visualization that was made with my music band in mind. Models were created and unwrapped in Blender and then exported to Unreal Engine for rendering and cameras and fx animation.
But why use Unreal Engine and not Cycles?
The first reason: the speed. This animation contains almost 2000 frames and it rendered about 3-4 minutes in Unreal Engine. It would render for many hours in Cycles or any other offline renderer. As I am doing it as a hobbyst and I don't have hundreds of processing cores, it was obvious that if I want to make many animations and learn from them, I need a game engine.
