The Gnomon Workshop announced its first training DVD on the Unreal® Development Kit Editor. This introductory title by Waylon Brinck, a CG supervisor at EA Los Angeles, covers a lot of ground in over 5 hours of step-by-step instruction on level development workflow, BSP and terrain building, lighting, texture importing and materials basics, importing custom assets and much more. Waylon brings to this DVD his ability to thoroughly breakdown and explain the Unreal Development Kit through his experience teaching Unreal at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects and at various workshops.
