I mistakenly responded to only the poster, so I am repeating here for others:


Fawaz1 - there are a few helpful videos. I recommend starting with these:

Let me know if you have any specific questions.


That was my first response.

I followed that with more, short GPA training videos for Graphics Trace Analyzer and Graphics Frame Analyzer:

Oh, and, the Graphics Frame Analyzer Deep Dive videos have corresponding articles. So if you saw something and can't remember you can more easily search the articles than the videos.

 

This list is a bit lengthy, but you might find it useful:

Also - if you have UE 4.26 or 4.27, we have a GPA plugin that you can add to UE. (For 5.0 we are working with Epic to integrate the plugin.)
