Cinematic Experience of the Environment.

I tried to recreate a visiting experience of the environment using the camera tools in unreal engine

To add texture design to the walls, Decals were created using photoshop and applied onto the models using a master material for decals to make the change of decals easy.

Creating seamless texture using Substance Designer for the walls.

The floor was created in substance designer as well, whereas all the rest of the textures were created using Materialise and Substance Painter.
