Important/Additional Notes: *Known Bugs and Fixes*
>Please take care as UE5.1 has some pretty harsh TSR Anti-Aliashing smearing on animated materials setting the console variable "r.TSR.ShadingRejection.Flickering.Period" to 0 or something really low greatly improves visuals ;)
>Shader calculations in the Documentation are from 4.21 these numbers may slightly change across engine versions.
>Changing the Near Clip Plane value from the default can cause artifacts
