UDK Shader Production - Practical Shader Techniques with Andrew Maximov

In Collaboration with Andrew Maximov we are proud to release this full-featured DVD at a much lower cost. In fact, you can watch this entire DVD free on our Youtube Channel or our Vimeo Channel. We appreciate everyone's support and hope this resource is helpful in your educational journey!

In this demonstration Andrew Maximov guides you through building various shaders from the ground up in Unreal Development Kit (UDK). He starts by going through the basics by explaining what some of the most widely used nodes in the material editor do and what they can and should be used for and then moves on to creating a custom phong lighting shader building on what was shown in the previous video for maximum effect.

From there he creates a complex shader that goes over such things as directional blending of textures and procedural placement of snow and ice. He then shows how to create a clock shader with customisable rotating hands and moves on to create a versatile desert shader for use in environment pieces that includes sand movement for that extra polish. He then goes over how to create a cheap and effective dripping water shader and a distance based blending shader that automatically sets the texture tiling based on the position of the camera within the scene and then moves on to gradient mapping which is used to cheaply and realistically texture various objects without the need for textures. Finally he shows how to produce clean opacity masks for foliage without the need for a dedicated alpha masks.

This DVD is perfect for those who want to learn how to efficiently create visually appealing and efficient materials in UDK.

New Year is the time at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar's year count increments by one. Many cultures celebrate the event in some manner.[1] The New Year of the Gregorian calendar, today mostly in use, falls on 1 January (New Year's Day), as was the case both in the old Roman calendar (at least after about 713 BCE) and in the Julian calendar that succeeded it. The order of months was January to December in the Old Roman calendar during the reign of King Numa Pompilius in about 700 BCE, according to Plutarch and Macrobius, and has been in continuous use since that time. Many countries, such as the Czech Republic, Italy, Spain, the UK, and the United States, mark 1 January as a national holiday.

During the Middle Ages in western Europe, while the Julian calendar was still in use, authorities moved New Year's Day variously, depending upon locale, to one of several other days, among them: 1 March, 25 March, Easter, 1 September, and 25 December. These New Year's Day changes generally reverted to using January 1 before or during the various local adoptions of the Gregorian calendar, beginning in 1582. The change from March 25 – Lady Day, one of the four quarter days – to January 1 took place in Scotland in 1600, before the ascension of James VI of Scotland to the throne of England in 1603 and well before the formation of the Kingdom of Great Britain in 1707. In England and Wales (and in all British dominions, including Britain's American colonies), 1751 began on March 25 and lasted 282 days, and 1752 began on January 1.[2] For more information about the changeover from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar and the effect on the dating of historical events etc., see Old Style and New Style dates.

Dangal (English: Wrestling competition) is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language biographical sports drama film directed by Nitesh Tiwari. It stars Aamir Khan as Mahavir Singh Phogat, who taught wrestling to his daughters Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari.The former is India's first female wrestler to win at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, where she won the gold medal (55 kg). Her sister Babita Kumari won the silver (51 kg). "Dangal" is the Hindi term for "a wrestling competition".
The music for Dangal was composed by Pritam, while the lyrics were written by Amitabh Bhattacharya. Kripa Shankar Bishnoi, a coach with the Indian women's wrestling team, trained Aamir Khan and the entire crew for the wrestling sequences.
Dangal is scheduled for release on 23 December 2016
Dangal was declared tax-free in Uttar Pradesh on 15 December 2016.

Bigg Boss 10 (stylized as Bigg Boss: Das)[1] is the tenth season of the Indian reality TV series Bigg Boss. It began airing on 16 October 2016 on Colors. The show is also available after the original telecast on Viacom 18’s digital platform – Voot. A new element called ‘Unseen-Undekha’ was introduced by way of unseen footage uploaded on Voot.[2] This footage showed parts of the day that weren’t included in the episode, from ‘wake-up call’ to ‘lights out’. Salman Khan is hosting this season for the seventh time.


Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but learners may also educate themselves.[1] Education can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. The methodology of teaching is called pedagogy.

Education is commonly divided formally into such stages as preschool or kindergarten, primary school, secondary school and then college, university, or apprenticeship

A right to education has been recognized by some governments, including at the global level: Article 13 of the United Nations' 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights recognizes a universal right to education.[2] In most regions education is compulsory up to a certain age.


The seventh season of the fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones was ordered by HBO on April 21, 2016, just three days before the premiere of the show's sixth season. Like the previous season, it will largely consist of original content currently not found in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, but also adapts material from the upcoming sixth and seventh novels The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. The season will premiere later than usual, in mid-2017. Unlike previous seasons that all consisted of ten episodes, the seventh season will consist of seven episodes.

Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine,[1] is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.

Several martyrdom stories associated with the various Valentines that were connected to February 14 were added to later martyrologies,[2] including a popular hagiographical account of Saint Valentine of Rome which indicated he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire.[3] According to legend, during his imprisonment, Saint Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius,[4] and before his execution, he wrote her a letter signed "Your Valentine" as a farewell.[5]

The day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). In Europe, Saint Valentine's Keys are given to lovers "as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver’s heart", as well as to children, in order to ward off epilepsy (called Saint Valentine's Malady).[6] Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.[7]

Saint Valentine's Day is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion,[8] as well as in the Lutheran Church.[9] Many parts of the Eastern Orthodox Church also celebrate Saint Valentine's Day, albeit on July 6 and July 30, the former date in honor of the Roman presbyter Saint Valentine, and the latter date in honor of Hieromartyr Valentine, the Bishop of Interamna (modern Terni).[10]

Does these UDK shader tutorials(Advanced Visual FX Masterclass and this tutorial) apply for a different game engine such as unity? Unity uses CG shader, and unity's own shaderlab. I really want to learn how to create shaders and these video seems perfect except for the fact that its in UDK
