This page describes known issues for PopcornFX Editor and simulation.
SDK licensees and studios with a support plan have access to a more complete list of issues in our backlog.
Pro / Entrerprise / University licenses are not always properly displayed when logged in PopcornFX Editor. This is currently being worked on and should be solved in 2021 along with a simpler portal to view the subscriptions / teams you are part of.
GPU simulated particles is a hot topic, PopcornFX currently only supports D3D11 and D3D12 as GPU simulation backends (making PopcornFX GPU sim particles compatible on PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series). Editing in-editor often leads to crashes, we are currently working on stabilizing remaining issues.
- Initial support for PS5 will be coming in v2.9.
- Support for Vulkan (Google Stadia, PC, Mobile) is not scheduled for 2021.
- Support for PS4 and Nintendo Switch will not be implemented.
PopcornFX Editor on Mac is still marked experimental. Metal is the default graphics API chosen by the editor, there are still however some shader compilation issues which can lead to crashes.
PopcornFX Editor on Linux is not marked experimental, but its installation can be tedious. OpenGL is the default graphics API chosen by the editor.
