    Hello, I am using custom shader plugged into VFX graph.
    If I only have normal map sampler node in the shader I got this error:

    "Shader error in 'Hidden/VFX/vfx_Warp_Test3/System 1/Output Particle Quad': undeclared identifier 'UnpackNormal' at line 1798 (on d3d11)"

    When I remove normal sampler node, shader works fine.

    VFX graph is very basic, just a minimum setup to spawn some particles with Quad Output node and custom shader.

    What's happening?

    Custom shader normal part:

    Hi @sergiusz308 ,

    We can reproduce this as well with unlit graphs. It works for lit graphs, you can switch your VFX shader graph master to be lit, use a lit Output Particle Quad, and connect the normal map to the Normal slot to get :


    Thanks for flagging this, the ShaderGraph integration is still experimental and we hope to make it a bit easier in the future to work with unlit/lit graphs. A fix for sampling normal maps in unlit is on the way.

    Hope this helps!
