In the Unreal Engine software, animation is an important part of any scenario. In addition to the range of objects you can animate in the Unreal Engine: characters, objects, materials, and even herds and mobs — Epic Games can provide you with training materials for just about any type of animation imaginable.
Some artists choose to animate directly in the engine, but you can also import animation data, depending on your preferences. Many like the flexibility to animate in the engine by placing keyframes in the sequencer, or triggering the animation with a Blueprint script. The Control Rig feature, more than ever before, gives you much better control over character animation.
