Tired of wasting hours of your daily work in lights and shader compile time?

This asset set the CPU priority of the compilers higher than by default.

  • Speed up the shader compiling time up to 72%!
  • Speed up the lights compiling time up to 43%!

Watch the video in the description to see it working!

Tested on a Intel core I5-6500 @3.20 GHz (this plugin can work with Intel or AMD)



Important note:

  • Changing the priority of the processes affects the performances of the engine, please save your work BEFORE boosting.
  • Be aware that all processes on your computer can be affected. I recommend closing any program outside the engine that consumes a lot of CPU while boosting (like Chrome for example).
  • This asset can only work with UE4 for windows.
  • The performance of the compiler booster on the landscape compilation cannot be guaranteed because of the multiple processes involved.
  • This asset is not designed to work with task distribution systems like Unreal Swarm.
