Support For Global Shaders In Plugins

From Trello:

Is it in master branch currently ? And even if it is not, would it be possible to give small 101 of steps needed to get shader working from plugin ?

I’d also like to know this.

Doesn’t look like it’s in master yet. We’ll need to wait for the next merge of dev-rendering…

This will be the best addition to the engine in years. Finally writing stuff like geometry shaders doesn’t require engine modification.

Support shaders in projects and in plugins
When searching for a shader it will
- First look in Engine/Shaders as usual
- Then in project's Shader folder
- Then in all enabled plugin Shader folders

Project or plugin must be loaded in PostConfigInit phase
Tested in PIE, engine (cooked, packaged)

Well I guess it’s still impossible to extend rendering with plugins only (add postprocess for example).

Yes please!

Actually… this is very useful. One of the best implementations.
