Question: Does/will Chaos use Blast? (Blast supports alternate back-ends other than PhysX)
I thought so until Epic Games clearly stated that they developed the new Chaos API by themselves. So it doesn’t seem to be a custom Blast version at all. And with Chaos I doubt they will officially add Nvidia Blast even when that will get the official first non-beta release.
That said the video previews of Chaos API have been outstanding so far. I hope UE 4.23 will let use the preview version of Chaos properly … stable enough to report bugs and start planning development and switching code and assets from the legacy PhysX.

Does it means this module was originally developed by team behind Houdini?
Sorry, you mean that in 4.23 Chos will be not ready for production?
