    Happens in 5.6.0p1 still making it impossible for us to use 5.6, when will this be fixed?

    We're encountering this issue (not the interpolation version) and it's making it next to impossible to debug anything while running in the editor as there are hundreds of errors. Is there any progress update on this?

    "RendererUpdateManager only synchronizes renderers that are added to the scene, so AssertIsTransformInfoUpToDate can only be called on renderers that are added to the scene"--------how to solve the problem?please!

    Just wanted to add that it seems to be an issue with Rigidbody interpolation as well (as others have stated), not just the skinned mesh renderer. Just wanted to agree with the below comment that setting all of my gameobject's Rigidbody interpolation settings to "None" makes the error go away. If I set them back to "Interpolate", the error shows up again.

    Please revert what ever was changed with interpolation since 5.3.3p1 as that runs so perfectly.
    This is preventing many of us from using 5.6 :(
    When we turn off all interpolation for all rigidbodies the error message goes away but the objects become all jerky and really un playable :(

    I'm getting the same error. I'm kinda glad to see that I am not the only one.

    @Gurg : Any eta's on this being fixed?

    thank you.

    Glad to see this bug in the tracker, it popped up for me recently as well. Started happening immediately after converting my game to 5.6.0f3
