    Anyone able to find where the
    New Pro Video Codecs
    are hiding? It's really irritating that the AVI, Motion JPEG is interlaced.

        I second this bug. Can't find "Geometry Collection" in Physics menu. Makes Chaos difficult. What about it VictorLerp?

          The preview builds are expected to have issues from all the sub-streams or branches of development teams coming together for a release. There is always some stabilization and fallout from the copy-up merging of all these branches together that has to be resolved and tested. These builds are part of our QA process to stabilize and catch issues before release. Having the community use them earlier in our process by having a lot of previews helps call out issues or edge cases we may have missed otherwise and it lets anyone who wants to try things out earlier get that first look.

          With each release, we post the preliminary highlighted features for that release so that everyone is aware of what's coming and they can start to try them out. For instance, Chaos is a big feature for this release, but it's not the only thing we're looking for feedback or bug reports on. Ray Tracing was released as "Beta" in 4.22 with the acknowledgement that there is still a lot of work to do. This release sees a number of improvements not only in stability but in some feature support for different geometry types and material types. RTGI is still very expensive and our devs are continually working to improve its performance but that too will take time.

          All that being said, if you find issues, please report them! Even if you're not sure they are a bug or lack of implemented feature or it's a difference from previous release in how it works/looks that we've not intentionally called out, please report it. Our teams will investigate and be sure so that we can get fixed if it is a bug and if it's not we'll try to provide context where possible.

          Daffrendo thanks for taking the time to try out the preview builds and report any issues you find. It really is appreciated and helps make a better release when it gets here!
          So, will be fixed next release - yes?
          Can you put your finger on the scale for us, we would like to see the basic Raytracing pieces not break-down as features are rolled out.
          THX Tim !

            Can you verify that the plugin is enabled? There seems to be an issue when using Github Desktop to clone the repository - it doesn't pull all of the plugins related to Chaos. If this is the case, download the .zip instead of cloning. We're working on figuring out why this is the case!

              I did get P2 compiled. The plugin is enabled. When I ran the editor it about 15 minutes to load. 5 hours to compile. Still no geometry container.

                Hey Unreal -- can you guys give some love to Sequencer?

                1- Attach doesn't seem to behave properly. Transform changes drastically and none of the settings seem to help.
                2- Scrubbing doesn't always reset the position of animations properly.
                3- Alembic Geo Cache in Sequence is broken

                Thanks.

                  I'm relocating countries at the moment and I can't investigate further, however it seems VT are boned. You can convert existing textures, and change the samplers in the materials accordingly, however theres either a memory leak or something isn't being flushed because memory usage skyrockets during conversion. While working on a large project with satellite data I had to be careful about how many I was converting in any given Editor session otherwise my system (with 128gb RAM) would just hang (I left it overnight to check, it doesn't get better). Additionally, when loading a level using them the same issue occurs with memory usage, although generally it will just crash.

                  As a test case i'd recommend converting the Kite Demo to use VT, or simply duplicate an 8k texture 1000 or so times and try converting them.

                      Hi Amanda.Bott - could you please pass on the info that in Sequencer the Attach / Detach function has been broken since at least 2017? This feels like it should be a very basic function and I have no idea what it hasn't gotten any more attention.

                      Also if someone here can explain to me why the Event Track in Sequencer has become a huge convoluted mess to use, if there is any advantage to the recent change I'd love to know. Thanks!

                        What does mean "UE-73915 Geometry Collections ignore visible setting in PIE". When click on Physics I don't see geometry collections.

                            To use Chaos in 4.23 Preview you have to follow the steps outlined here.

                              Now it seems that the rendering part of 4.23 has become very bad, especially ray tracing.

                              Until the latest 4.23 Preview 3, RTGI was damaged, RT translucency was completely disabled, SSGI could not be combined with RT effect, LPV could not be combined with RT effect, which led to the only available GI effect under RT Shadow was RTGI, but its performance was so bad. Many parts of ray tracing look terrible, even worse than 4.22.3.

                              The only consolation is that we have seen support for these categories of HISM and Ladnscape, but we still don't know when these rendering problems will be solved.

                                If you've not already, please report any issues you find that have regressed or are "bugged" from intended or expected behavior so they can be properly investigated and reported where possible.

                                As for LPV and SSGI, these are both experimental and unsupported features. SSGI is not yet ready for production and is not a feature we're focused on marketing or calling out for the 4.23 life-cycle. It's expected to be ready for 4.24, so expect to run into issues and incompatibility with other features.

                                For LPV, this is not an actively developed feature and any regressions are expected since we've been doing a lot of changes in rendering lately. These may or may not be resolved in a future release. It's not a feature being actively developed by our Rendering teams.
