7. On Your Own!

In this final step, you'll see some examples you can take to make this your own project as well as links to additional topics on lighting and lighting techniques.


Using what you have learned over the course of this Quick Start Guide, try to do the following:


  • Extend the apartment to add more rooms.

  • Light the other rooms with Point Lights or Spot Lights.

  • Add props from the Content/StarterContent/Props folder (such as door or window frames, doors or lamps).


  • Use a Sphere Reflection Capture in a room.

  • Use a different IES Profile on a light.

  • Create a floor lamp using Spot Lights.


  • You can also change the Directional Light to make it a night scene.


For more information on the topics covered in this Quick Start Guide, and across the entire editor, see the Unreal Editor Manual .

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
