        Any chance ray tracing is for official lightmaps baking solution in 4.22 ?

          It is simple amazing tool. I was calculating a day the interior scene by standart unreal CPU lightcache, after 12 hours I have stopped it and tried your GPU solution. The result was done in 1 hour and result...fantastic! Only one minus is my geforce with 6GB Vram, so I can't to use much 4096 px texture sizes. I run own BAT file to save as much Vram as possible.
          Pleas keep in development of this super awesome stuff. Thank you for your work!
          Btw my scene took 64 GB ram, I think there is something wrong with memory optimization, anyway it worked and don't know if this was caused by Unreal direct shadows or GPU process.

            Hi, a problem with double sided material affecting bounced light, does it apply also to double sided mesh geometry?

              HI,
              after update to 4.22 I have following message

                Situx is the script creator. Maybe he can help you.
                My advice is just download GPULightmass and unzip it yourself in the engine folder.
                But if you really meant 4.22, I don't think it works with that version yet.

                    Sorry my mistake, 4.21.2.
                    Yes Situx script gives an error.



                    UPDATE:

                    manual instalation works fine with 4.21.2

                    Yes Situx if you could be so kind and update your great script :-) - it is so convenient
                    thank you.

                      It means the script does not recognize the Lightmass.exe hash and cannot decide which version to use. That also means the lightmass core changed, and would probably also mean that GPU Lightmass may need to be updated for 4.21.2 in order to have the latest changes included (not sure what changed thou).
                      To work around it, I'll need to update the hash table to the latest version. There is a script in the "Hash" folder just for that called "HashCheck.bat".
                      I'm currently on another project, but I'll see if I can make some time this week to update it.

                          The 4.20.2 version probably works just fine. Pretty sure I used that on 4.20.3 myself.

                              I can test that today but I updated to latest version of 4.21 and need to reinstall GPULightmass as it no longer works.

                                Apologies if this has been brought up before but I'm having a small issue with indirect lighting - the CPU baker managed to scatter the lights around fairly nicely but using this I have ceilings coming out mega dark. I've tried browsing the thread for a result but it's like searching for a needle.

                                Can anyone lend a hand please?
