The GeNa carve extension is broken when using Vulkan in the editor

If you set the editor graphics API to Vulkan, anything relating to terrain modification seems pretty broken.

 I haven't investigated much but I suspect this is related to the similar issue with Gaia:

It looks like this one can be fixed by using `(Pack/Unpack)Heightmap` in the right places in Carve.compute.

This is more than likely due to the face that Vulkan doesnt support Compute Shading. 
You would need to switch to Metal until the world creation is done.

Hi. Unfortunately the only API supported on my platform by HDRP is Vulkan (I'm on Linux).

With the added calls to Pack/Unpack the compute shader works fine under Vulkan. I get the correct preview & operation. 🙂

Hey mate,

Do you mind sending me the compute shader you modified? Having a hard time finding where to put it.
