      OK, so, this method inproves the static visuals. Does it have an effect on the movable objects and their integration?

      Working on the lights and I would gladly welcome a shorter and better solution than the UE4 vanilla.

      Second question : if I want to go back to classic lightmass compute, do uninstall reinstall work?

        Before replacing folders make backup and about moving objects everything works as before

          Epic get this in the engine please.
          For 4.20 as an experimental feature.

            If I had to guess, I think a sticking point with Epic putting this into the engine as an official plugin maybe due to it being a NV/CUDA only feature. Judging from their previous stuff, they prefer things to be hardware agnostic. I guess if it ever gets ported to OpenCL, maybe it'll be an option.

              Dumb question, but how do I know if GPU Lightmass is working? The progress window popped up once in one project, but when I open other projects and bake lighting it doesn't open. Is there a way to tell if its working or not? Does it only work if X,Y,Z or is it working but I just cant tell?

              Thanks,

                  Luoshuang so i came across this just yesterday, and i couldnt Keep waiting to test it myself i did a realy quick and dirty simple Scene just a room with a Sofa.
                  So far im so fkn HAPPY !!!! that i FINALY got rid of those fkn anoying ugly black splotchy lines in Corners no matter how perfect your UV maps are i think everyone here who played with extremely low Level scale Settings knows what im talking about. But i also noticed a few Things i might be wrong.

                  After the First Bake which took only 1:48 with 2k Lightmapps on every single object and 4k on the walls and Floors o.O i was first impressed how detailed the shadows are and crisp and clean everything looked i could never achieve that with the normal Lightmass even with high Settings.

                  BUT !!!! after i took a look at the Lightning only mode i noticed immediately that there is no Sky light Multi bounce ???? the whole lightning no matter how detailed and crisp and clean it looked. It was too dark also it lacked in Depth and all those nice collor variations you get from the sky light Multi bounce which i used the day you released it back then before Epic itself did it.



                  Question: Luoshuang do you plan to implement the sky light Multi bounce for future Builds of the GPU Lightmass ? i think if you could manage to implement it we could finaly achieve Ofline Rendering Quality in UE4 with reasonable Rendering Times


                  Lightmap resolutions used in the screenshots 2048 for the Sofa, Plant and Window and 4096 for the Walls Floor etc.
                  GPU: Gigabyte G1 Gaming GX 1080 OC @ 2,1GHZ
                  Render Time GPU: 1:48
                  Render Time CPU: 38:41
                  equal settings

                    edit:

                    This could be related to the GPU timing out due to heavy workload, it's usually accompanied with the 'unspecified launch failure' error. Did you change the TDR (Timeout Detection and Recovery) to a higher number in the Windows registry? Windows defaults it at only 2 seconds, try changing it to a higher number like 300. It's explained how to do this in the original thread post, or you can look up it up yourself on other sites.

                      Looks like there's one sneaky thing going on inside GPULightmass. GPULightmass uses 'Two Sided Emulation' by default on all two sided materials - which means it tries to make all surfaces emit on both sides, each side with half energy, which could be the problem why people are seeing darken environments and light leaks. The original purpose of this feature(bug?) was to approximate the behavior of scattering of things like leaves in a forest so that you get 'green-ish' environment lighting atmosphere, or papers and thin curtains.

                      For the skylight multibounce, since GPULightmass doesn't uses photon mapping the skylight gets natural support of multiple bounces.

                      Currently the workaround is to turn off two sided on these materials. While it should be a not so hard fix on my side, I'm scheduling my relocation so I cannot write codes in recent days. Sorry for that!

                        Hi,

                        Where did you find this scene? I was looking for it for a long time. Can you help me about it?

                          Hello,
                          we have installed the UE4.19.2 and the GPULightmass 4.19.2.
                          When we try to build a scene the GPU Renderer crashes with the message "Illegal Memory access was encountered"




                          Does anybody know how to fix this ?
                          We tried to add the TdrDelay in the Regedit but this doesnt work.

                          System:
                          AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950x

                            This error can be related to overclocking. Some non-founder version NV cards (like my ASUS GTX1080) run into this error frequently. I solved the problem on my card by applying a -200MHz shift.

                                I'd love to build lighting using GPU, but then I'd like to use those lightmaps with another fork of UE4. How would I do that (if I could at all)?

                                Any chance this solution will make it into 4.20 official branches ?
