I’m not affiliated with him in any way, I just appreciate him so much! Great Shader Graph intro–I finally get a nice grasp of this cool Unity feature.

Thanks for the vote of confidence! Glad you enjoyed the tutorial!

Why the project crashed when I open it with Unity 2019.2.14f1 on Windows:disappointed_relieved:

Hi bling, sorry the project crashed for you.

However, I downloaded the ZIP from the RayWenderlich site and was able to open both the IntroToShaderGraph_Starter and IntroToShaderGraph_Final projects in both Unity 2019.2.10f and 2019.2.15f using Windows 10.

A number of factors can cause a crash, so I suggest first you try to reboot, download the ZIP again and try to re-open one of the projects. Make sure you download to a disk with sufficient disk space as Unity needs to generate a number of cache files when the projects open. -Wilmer
