In this second DVD of our 2-part Masterclass series, instructor Jeremy Baldwin begins by taking a look at creating custom geometry that will used to construct multiple energy shaders and particle systems in UDK. He then moves on to create a quick and unique master lens flare material. Next, Jeremy shows how to create complex shaders using UV coordinates to manipulate world coordinate parameters and vertex animation. He then goes on to create a stylized shader that is decision dependent and will swap between multiple states to hide or reveal geometry before it plays its animation.
