Lumen unreal engine 5 on Mac


I own a m1 Mac with Apple’s new in house chip. So I decided to try out UE5. I was following some beginner tutorials on lumen and lighting. However, lumen doesn’t seem to work. After setting the global illumination method to lumen, nothing seems to happen or change. It’s my first time using Unreal so I have no idea why this is happening and if the fact that I’m on a Mac is the cause of this.


That’s most probably the issue. Max are not gaming machines, so Mac supports for engines is never really a priority. Let alone support for Macs built on nonstandard ARM chips.
