    0lento Your 4.19 branch works like a charm currently no errors except wmf media but not really a problem. But i was wondering which tech is included in: https://github.com/0lento/UnrealEngi...e/4.20-Physics Thank you for your time man

    @ 3dlight -- can you confirm that your VXGI is showing up in your video captures? I'm trying to troubleshoot, and so far I don't know if this is a common problem or specific to my install...

    Backstory:
    We're a small indie team of game devs working on our first independent game. The tech we're using is UE4.19 with VXGI2.0 (https://github.com/NvPhysX/UnrealEngine/tree/VXGI2-4.19)

    Issue:
    In order to make it easier for our designers and artists (which aren't technical) to work with the engine, I'm building a binary version of the editor so they can sync it from P4 and not have to compile the engine (most have never even heard of Visual Studio).
    I built a binary version of the engine, which built successfully with no errors or warnings.
    However, when I open the editor it immediately crashes, spitting out the following error, that from what I can tell, is happening because of VXGI:
    (if anyone has any info it would be extremely helpful, this one is a big production blocker right now)

    Any info on release timing for VXGI 4.20? We're using vxgi for some cinematic stuff, and with the new DOF in 4.20, it would be great to have the 2 merged!

    Looks like HBAO is dropping out as well in the video export. Hires screenshot does export with both VXGI and HBAO. The cinematic toggle is already disabled in my video export -- is there a way to get video capture to copy the on-screen editor like a hires screenshot?

    I'm finding the same issue exporting video through Sequencer -- no VXGI. It looks like all the other post processes are there, with only VXGI dropping out. Has anyone else run into this?

    To access any UE4 fork, you need to link your github account with your epic/ue4 account (just like you had to link your github account with nvidia to get access to NVIDAGameWorks).

    Instructions here: https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/ue4-on-github

    Apologies if this isn't the right place for this. My VXGI is visible in-editor, but disappears when played. See attached. The first is in-editor, the second after playing in selected viewport. I am out of my depth to even have a working compiled github fork... if anybody can help, thanks.

    GallonmateYou can't distribute UE4 editor freely outside of github fork due to the licensing limitations. There are two ways to get modified Unreal to people: either via fork from official repo or binaries distributed via Epic Launcher, which they don't offer for custom builds like these, they only offer this service for select partners that wish to add modding option for their game and this custom UE4 engine version is then distributed through Epic Launcher by Epic itself.

    Even if self hosting was allowed (which it is not), most people wouldn't have even resources to host this amount of data for others while providing it for free. Github fork with source code distribution is only viable option.

    because the source is like 1-2GB plus a 3-4Gb download when building it, fully compiled it gets to around 60Gb.
    it's super easy to compile it as well

    That's nice to hear. I've pushed the change into main repo now as well: https://github.com/0lento/UnrealEngi...4.19-GameWorks so hoping people will not stumble on this anymore.

    VRWijnen could you try cloning the repo from this temp branch and see if it packages now? https://github.com/0lento/UnrealEngi...-GameWorks-Fix
    This repo contains the 4.20 build fix for that lib but I can't verify if it helps as everything seems to work on my end regardless.
    This repo works thanks for your help.

    0lento When I turned of media/WMF I was able to build the project. If you don't mind I will test your new repo bit later.
