Overview: FXVille artists Dan Bruington and Brittany Hein will demonstrate multiple techniques in Unreal Engine 4 for debugging and analyzing data regarding particle systems and other VFX assets. Topics will include using Niagara's built in debugging tools, utilizing Blueprints and Materials to visualize things like in-game positions, gameplay data, and implementation logic.
