    Branch dev-rendering build fails.

    I'm trying to build the engine from the dev-rendering branch, but I keep getting errors.
    So, here's what I did:
    I downloaded the source from this branch (tried both downloading it, and cloning):
    I do the usual steps: Setup.bat, then GenerateProjectFiles.bat
    GenerateProjectFiles.bat output:
    Setting up Unreal Engine 4 project files...
    Binding IntelliSense data...
    WARNING: Exception while generating include data for UnrealFileServer: Unable to instantiate module 'UnrealEd': Unable to instantiate UnrealEd module for non-editor targets.
    (referenced via Target -> UnrealFileServer.Build.cs -> NetworkFileSystem.Build.cs -> Engine.Build.cs -> UMG.Build.cs -> MovieSceneTracks.Build.cs -> BlueprintGraph.Build.cs -> KismetCompiler.Build.cs)
    Binding IntelliSense data... 100%
    Writing project files... 100%
    It throws this warning, but other than that all files are generated.
    I then open UE4.sln with Visual Studio: Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2019 Version 16.7.4
    I select the UE4 as the startup project, and then hit "build".
    The compiling starts, and 45 minutes or so it ends with the following output:

    Click image for larger version  Name:	Capture.PNG Views:	0 Size:	37.1 KB ID:	1815940

    Now I know that any of these dev branches are highly unstable, and there's no surprise that something like this happens, but does anybody know how to fix this? Am I doing something wrong?
    I mean, I can see the errors, but rather than debugging the actual code here, I think I must be missing something rather than it really having an uncompilable code.

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Open Engine\Source\Runtime\MovieSceneTracks\MovieSceneTracks.Build.cs and replace this line:
    if (Target.bBuildWithEditorOnlyData)
    with this:
    if (Target.bBuildWithEditorOnlyData && Target.bBuildEditor)
    I've created a pull request that does just that:

      Alright, thanks!
