The distance field materials do not work on a High Poly mesh.  

Found in 4.19 CL# 4033788, 4.20 CL# 4369336, 4.21 CL# 4753647, 4.22 CL# 6063286, 4.23 CL# 6398642

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open attached project
  2. Observe the same material applied to the default plane and a high-poly plane


The high-poly mesh will be all white and unaffected by the meshes placed on it while the default plane is what is expected


Both would look the same
