Hierarchical Instanced Static Mesh Component CustomDepth Pass Bug

This problem was recently posted about, however I wanted to create a new post to upgrade it to a bug report. I’ve confirmed that CustomDepth pass rendering does not work with the Hierarchical Instanced Static Mesh Component in both 4.10 and 4.11.

Hi Wilberolive,

Thank you for reporting this. I’ve entered a ticket for this with UE-25012. Once there is a fix or any update to the ticket I’ll update this post here with any relevant information.

Thank you!


@wilberolive - thanks a lot for posting this as a bug report. I can’t believe I forgot to mark my report as a bug report, no wonder it was lost. Thanks again for writing this report!

Has there been any progress on this, or is there a known workaround we can implement ourselves?

This is fixed in 4.11 as far as I can tell. All my HISM components are now showing up nicely in custom depth related post process filters.

My thanks to Epic for fixing this!
