Any self-respecting game developer knows that getting their third-person player character right is one of the fundamental keys to a great gaming experience. Not only this but the controller, once developed, can be transferred from one game to another, making the code reusable and scalable. In this course, you will learn how to put together your own third-person character from scratch using freely available 3D models and animations, which you will learn how to control with C# in Unity. The idea behind this course is to take students through a series of workshops with the necessary tools to help them make a character, animate a character and program a character without the need of being able to model or animate and gain an understanding of the third-person character controller pipeline.
In a third-person game, the player sees the game world from a Camera that's located at a fixed distance behind and slightly above their character. In Unreal Engine, you can control camera distance and position, and adjust it as needed.
Launching Unreal Engine 5 opens the Project Browser window, where you can choose to open an existing Unreal project or create something new. To create a third-person project, select the Games category on the left, and then select the Third Person template.
The Third Person template contains all of the basic elements of a simple third-person experience. You can use it as a starting point for a traditional role-playing game (RPG), third-person shooter, or any other kind of application. The following section details the main template elements and where to find them in the Content Browser. 153554b96e
