How to import animation cutscenes into ue4
Hey guys! So, I'm actually want to create a cinematic scene in 3d software animation, and I want to use my level in ue4 to be applied on that cutscene. I've tried to google all the solutions about this, but I found none of the solution could help me out. Lip sync in ue4 matinee is hard, that's why I prefer to use animation software to make that. It is simply like you create a cinematic scene where a character talk to another character, no gameplay, have some camera movements or in simple word " A Movie". I want to put it before the gameplay starts, (just to give the player some ideas on what's going on). I want to make that scene in 3d animation software that also will export camera movements, and import it into ue4, so that I can use my level in ue4 as the background of that scene.
I hope you guys understand my problem.
This is a very big topic and there is a lot of things you would have to learn, here are a few steps you can take to get started. I've linked appropriate tutorials, you can find many more similar tutorials on you tube as well.
For facial animations you just have to make sure import morph targets is checked when you import your character, then what ever morph target animations you made in your animation software will be imported with the animation. And I suggest you create camera animations in unreal engine with sequencer, its not that hard learn. It will get a lot more complicated if you have to import your camera animations from external software.
Learn all this and you should be go to go.
