Description

If you are looking for an introductory course for the Unity 3D game engine then this is the course for you. To have Unity 3D and a few example applications on your job profile is an enormous advantage for someone looking to work in this field or improve an existing job position internally. Linked In recently listed Unity developer as the 6th most posted job for companies in 2018. In order to make things easier for all students I wanted to put together this fundamentals course^ so the installation process and a solid Unity foundation could be learnt in one place which I hope will be beneficial for people just like you. In order to cater for everyone this course is aimed at absolute beginners and I do not expect any prior knowledge of the Unity 3D game engine or C# programming language. If you are already familiar with Unity / C# and are simply looking to learn a few new things^ the later videos in the course are a better place for you to start. For everyone else^ let s have a look at what this course covers. The unity course is broken into a few sections^ the first being an explanation into what Unity 3D is and how you install it. We look at the different licensing options and I guide you through the installation process including a few new tips on how to set Unity up using local cloud software to save your work and I also cover the new version of Unity where the Vuforia Augmented Reality software is now included. Vuforia is not covered in the course as my other courses go into AR / Mixed Reality in more depth^ however^ I mention it in the installation process ensuring the package is installed ready for future use. After installing the software I then look at each individual panel in Unity^ what they are for and how they affect the scene. All the code and supporting files for this course are available at: https://github.com/PacktPublishing/Introduction-To-Unity-For-Absolute-Beginners The point of this course isn t to make you an instant master in Unity 3D but to make you feel comfortable using the software^ learn the terminology and open your eyes to app development the easy way. I hope you have lots of fun along the way and if you enjoy my teaching manner feel free to check out my more in-depth courses^ see you in the course guys^ learn lots^ fun and easy.
