Free “Video Comparator”

Today I decided to clean up, update the code, update to the most recent vs2017 version, and release for free one of my most beloved personal tools that I’ve developed to help me personally and commercially. It have been a good friend over the years, helping me in comparing animation shots, pre-rendered renderfarm shots in cartoons industry, games vfx and cinematic shots.

Now you kinda got a clue, why I did put similar feature in my Mirage Engine ^_^ It’s something I love during work, comparing changes!!

The app used to be only supporting AVI files (back then mp4 weren’t fun anyways), but there were many improvements that been added over the years, in the way it work, the performance, the file formats, etc. . Currently it supports AVI, mp4 & MKV. There are also few other options I’ve added during 2019, but not included with this liver version, as I’m not sure yet about those options usability, but for sure will push those updates to the executable as soon as they work in the way i hope for.

You can just grab it from itch.io

Once more, Mentioned in Unreal Engine 4.22

Well….By now you already know how this works! I’ve stopped tracking my pull requests, so I’m not sure which ones of my contributions are included within this release, but one thing to be sure about, it was either fixes or minor features, and it is not for sure related to Raytracing at all =D as I didn’t get an RTX card as gift yet!

Cascade 2 Niagara

If you been following this blog for quite sometime, you are probably familiar with the type of things that I like to do in my free time. Mostly challenging or out of the box stuff weird things the probably no one around 5000 miles is thinking about. One of those things that i consider as out of the box activity, is the “Magical Tools” or at least this is how i like to call them!

Several years ago when Unity3d announced the new amazing UI system they have, at that time almost everyone was using an editor extension called NGUI, and with that in mind, and while it seemed at that time that the future will be for that new teased UI system (4.6) and NGUI will decay, I started thinking not only about learning the new system, but also in a way to migrate all my projects (and anyone’s project) to that UI system, and the result was a nice converting plugin that been around for quite sometime until the UI system became pretty much the default standard for any U3d project.

Today I wanted to talk about something similar, but more recent. Couple of years ago Epic announced that a new FX system is in the way, and not too long, it became an experimental thing, and now it is officially within the engine as a plugin (well, 4 or 5 months ago). During that past few months, specially after it came out of experimental folder, I started to testing it, trying it, learning it, and try to make some of that new system emitters within my projects. Have to say it give a TON of control, and it is amazing system, the smart way it was built (imagine, particle modules ain’t header files o.O) not to mention that you can add your own modules, and expand and extend the Niagara workflow to the infinity and beyond, only with data! And while is sounds perfect, but this means all the FX that I made in the past is dead now, and must start making new ones, while Cascade will still not dead, but it is very clear, that a new system will replace and old one at some point, same as Sequencer and Matinee. So I decided to work more in digesting that system and do my favorite thing, which is a “magical tool”!

Few days Ago I’ve announced on twitter about the tool I’ve been working on since Niagara release, that will ease the conversion of old particle FX systems (AKA cascade) to new Niagara systems. And while the differences between the two systems are almost the day and night difference, but finally I managed to have ways and road to make something working as expected, fast & kinda considering all the possibilities.

There isn’t much to show right now, yet the converted asset will look like 70%-80% the old one, and this is why i prefer to keep working and pushing it further. Right now, it’s all code, console messages & broken *.uasset files, but I see potential with near 80% similarities!!!!
For now, it is a side road that i took to experiment something new within couple of days, and ended up being a plugin that lasted for 3 months or may be more.
While this project been in the work for quite sometime, I decided to finalize it as soon as possible, and and put it out, so instead of migrating alone to Niagara system, let’s all get prepared to make it a group seasonal migration to the new system!!!!

nGUI to uUi is FREE now!

without further ado, I kept getting many requests of re-publishing that kinda old AssetStore project or someone want to buy a single license of it. But because I took the decision long time ago to not support it anymore
due to my time barriers. And with those messages increasing, I decided to put it online fully for free, and anyone can use it as is, improve it or share it for any purpose. So Enjoy it

Unreal Python[S]

I have created a public repo where i’ll be cleaning up most of my personal unreal Python scripts that I’ve made (and keep making) to help me in processing many things faster while working with UE4 pipelines.
You can access the public repository on GitHub here. I’ve another larger private repo on gitlab full of the entire library of my scripts, but i would not love to share it right away, as there are many many outdated scripts or chunks of scripts, things need updates, things are replaced or removed from the main Py api of UE4, so I found it more safe to pick them one by one, make sure it works without any errors, and then push it to the public repo.

And to warm up, here is the first one in this series, make sure to follow the channel or the twitter account to get the latest news regarding the new scripts, i won’t be posting here per script.

I’ve created a public playlist, so things get easier to follow while scripts getting added frequently

Once more, Mentioned in Unreal Engine 4.21

Peep!

It is happening again, this morning I noticed that my contributions in adding features and fixing some UE4 issues was included in 4.21 again. Supper happy with that great community and seeing everyone helping each-other and pushing the engine as far as we can. Despite the fact of being busy at daily work, and working in my free-time in making personal projects and experimentation, but there is always a buffer of time to work something into the UE4 core.

I still didn’t get the official 4.21, so I’ve no idea what fixes or features from my branch are in there, but regardless; I’m proud of whatever of my work! =D Let’s see if something gonna come in 4.22, 4.23 ^_^

-m

Once more, Mentioned in Unreal Engine 4.20

Snap!

I always get GitHub emails saying my fixes and features in my UE4 fork got approved or rejected, but i never knew when or where it will be merged and released. Few weeks ago I noticed that my contributions in fixing some UE4 issues was included in 4.20 again. Very happy to see how great this community in helping each-other and pushing the engine as far as we can, in order to produce some personal experimentation and learn more!

Idk which fixes are those in 4.20, but proud of them indeed =D I’m expecting some for 4.21 or even 4.22, dunno!

UE4U: Free UnrealEngine Tuts & Resources

As you all know that I’ve been fully Unreal Engine since the moment it came to public more than a year ago. And also know that I made lots of tutorials and several UE books. Now I’ve decided to go even further and collect everything at one place UE4U.XYZ and make sure to weekly release new tutorials.

Screen Shot 2015-09-05 at 1.42.21 PM

The main focus of the website is to make free tutorials that covers all the tricks and hows of Unreal Engine. And very soon (before the end of 2015) there will be several series running that demonstrating how to build gameplay mechanics, boss-fights, combats, AI,…..And all the juicy stuff that gameplay engineers do everyday!

The main goal and idea behind the first tutorial series I made years ago was to put everything within one website to teach Unreal Engine and help spreading it between the current developers and the new ones as well, but things went crowded and busy by writing my Unreal Books and releasing my games on steam, and all of that beside my 9h/day job :$

Now… after almost a year of the hard work, I’ve delivered all the “3” Books (only 2 going to be published now), and my games are safe with players… I have enough time alongside to my job to make tutorials and continue on the plan!

If you have any ideas or requests of tutorials don’t hesitate, follow on Facebook or Twitter and as there!

UE4U.XYZ
