I am working my way through this tutorial: https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/vertex-animation-textures-in-unity/ [www.sidefx.com]

I have tried latest version of 2021 and 2022 alpha of Unity. The instructions do not work in 2021. Then tried in 2022 alpha and got this error: Sub Graph at Packages/com.sidefx.vat/Editor/Shaders/VAT_ParticleSprites_SSG.shadersubgraph has 4 warning(s), the first is: There is a newer version of this node available. Inspect node for details.

Has anyone been able to resolve this issue? have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I've been working thru the same workflow... I was able to get the package properly installed in unity 2021.2.4f1 with URP 12.

Unfortunately I am not getting an animated result when I go thru the tutorial, I'm not sure if it's a shader issue or if I maybe did something wrong when I exported my VAT assets. Next step is to try the same workflow with the example assets and make sure the process isn't broken.

(time passes) Hmmm, I follow the workflow with the fluid from the tutorial and get the same result - I bring in the fbx and textures, apply the presets, apply the textures to the material, apply the material to the fbx and the result is the same: the same cloud of triangles, just black, no animation.

Can someone else look into this and confirm if there's a reproducible issue?

Ultimately I'd like to try VAT with Unity 2020.3.24 and see how it performs. I'd also like to see PopcornFX supported in the latest iteration of the ROP the way it initially was... I'm not sure if that comes from Labs or if the popcorn peeps need to do something on their end?

The VAT exporter ROP is very exciting, keep up the amazing work guys! Labs tools are the best!

I was hoping for a solution before the game jam. This is some cool stuff - got it to work in Unreal.
