3D Environment Demo Reel - Mason McKay


Mason McKay used a combination of Blender, Substance Painter and UE5 to create this impressive environment.

A demo reel showcasing not only certain 3D environments I've created, but giving insight into how they were created. The projects on show were built in Blender, materials were created in Substance Painter, and sets were either rendered in Blender or assembled and rendered in Unreal Engine 5.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Great job but for the sake of reception it'd be better to show the whole result FIRST and THEN explain all the steps and stages.
