Amazon Sumerian Tutorials and Samples

You can start working with the Sumerian editor quickly with just a web browser. We recommend using the latest versions of Google Chrome or Firefox.”

To get familiar with the Sumerian editor, build a scene by using the getting started tutorial. The tutorial introduces entity management, cameras, configuration, and state machines.

Next, learn about working with external assets by downloading and importing a sample character model. You can create models with free tools and import them into your Sumerian scene, converting them to Sumerian assets with texture and animation data intact.

Do more with cameras and state machines by recreating the model showcase scene. Learn how to configure a camera script and use a state machine to trigger animations in response to user input.

To get started check out the Amazon Sumerian Basics: Create Your First Scene tutorial or take the Sumerian Beginner Video Course.
