Has anyone tried cooking with ASTC compression ?

I decided to give ASTC a spin. Spent 6 hrs waiting and ended up terminating UE4. ETC2 takes only a fraction of that to cook.

Is it a bug or does initial cooking with ASTC takes THAT long for everyone ?


The current ASTC compressor is very slow. We are evaluating alternatives. Intel has a faster one with some limitations, for example.
