    Epic - that iPad Camera thing, some ideas to add-

    1) an ability to rotate with a right-thumb control, as an augment to only rotating by moving yourself in geo-space
    2) a pinch-zoom camera-zoom - you already have a navigational Left-controller that let's you 'move' the camera itself forward, but it does not emulate, say, if you were recording video with a phone and 2-finger pinch-zooming in on a target
    3) an ability to let the phone app record your audio...this spontaneous live vocal could so enhance the playback

        Excellent update! For my project this is working great. Compared to 4.22, performance is up at least a little bit in some cases. GI Denoiser performance and quality seems much better. In 4.22 I couldn't run the sample rate at 100% because the noise pattern took a second or so to catch up in fast movement (especially when one object occluded another and you turn the camera fast), now it's much closer to realtime. Not quite instant, but 100% sampling rate is possible. I defaulted to a 25% sampling rate in part to mitigate that issue, now I think I may want to change my defaults for a 4.23 build. I'm seeing pretty decent results with a 100% sampling, 1 bounce and 1 sample. 2 bounces look better, but the performance impact is probably too high for most gamers.

        I can't quite tell what's going on from looking at it yet but quality seems better compared to 4.22. This is exactly what I would've hoped for, not expecting perfection with RTGI I know there are serious engineering challenges to get this right. But steps in the right direction is fantastic and very welcome. I realize that its going to take a while to get all of the ray tracing features working the way everyone wants it to.

        Also my release build size has come down 200MB from preview 7 to preview 8. Exact same content (2.8GB vs 2.6GB on disk).

          4.23 Preview 8 HDRIbackdrop gone?

          Transclucent working now! but max refraction rays greater than 1, got glitch on translucent materials. setted 1 seems ok.

            Hey VictorLerp , are you guys looking into fixing Alembic support at all? In 4.22 I was constantly getting crashes when importing - particularly with Geometry Cache. It's been a real nightmare cause it used to work fine in 4.19.

            Thanks.

                Should now be a separate plugin that you have to enable

                  Thanks for the info.

                  How do you know about this tho? I am asking because there was zero information on this anywhere and this information is very important for us devs.

                      Seems like ray-traced translucent materials have a bug where the specular value also affects the refraction of the material.

                        Hi all!
                        Unreal 4.23 preview 8 doesn't deploy for IOS 13.1
                        It's impossible to deploy for ios 13.1 on ipad.
                        No problems on iPad pro with last IOS 12, it works perfectly but on Ipad Pro (same project!) with IOS 13.1 I have the error as in 4.22...
                        Any developer is working to make Unreal works with last IOS 13?

                          That's just Epic collecting **** about you/your Editor usage. Block it in your firewall as you definitely don't need it to work.

                            thx for info .

                            testing >

                            Objects with translucent material are extremely hard shadows. it's really hard to balance the shadow of the interiors ... Will there be a setting for the shadow of translucent objects in the final release?
