Issue ID




[LWRP] Sprite Renderer ignores Sprite Mask when Lightweight Render Pipeline Asset Data is set to 2D Renderer (Experimental)

Package: Scriptable Render Pipeline Lightweight


How to reproduce:
1. Open the "SampleScene" Scene in the attached "" Unity project
2. In the Project tab, select the "LightweightRenderPipelineAsset" Asset
3. In the Inspector tab, change the Data property of Renderer Type to "New 2D Renderer Data"
4. Observe the Scene view

Expected result: the Sprite Renderer Component remains partially hidden
Actual result: the Sprite Renderer Component is not displayed

Reproducible with: 2019.2.0b6, 2019.3.0a6

Note: 2D Renderer (Experimental) introduced in Unity 2019.2. Unable to test on versions earlier than 2019.2.0a10 due to errors. The behavior of the Sprite Renderer Component's Mask Interaction property resembles its behavior when no Sprite Mask Component is present in the Scene.

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 7.1.1):

    Issue fixed on Universal Render Pipeline Version 7.1.1 and above on latest Editor version 2019.3.

    I'm using unity 2020.1.5f1 with using URP version 8.2.0. When i using UPR, sprite mask doesn't work at all. I'm stuck on this issue. I try all settings but still it doesn't work. So how is that "Fixed" i can't really understand.

    I think there should be a warning when using the 2D renderer that you need to enable Stencil/Depth buffer on the "URP 2D Renderer Data". In case someone doesn't figure it out, I hope this helps.. :)

    How was this fixed in 7.1.1 if the latest release is still 6.9.1? I saw that the URP is at version 7.1.2 but I don't have the package in Unity 2019.2.8f1

    In addition, sorting layer and custom ranges don't seem to make anything work better in 6.9.1

    I was successfully able to mask a sprite with another sprite when using the LWRP. I made sure my mask sprite was on the right sorting layer (on top) for the additional settings. I then had to set custom range sorting layer to match the same layer under additional settings. I hope this explains things. Please don't hesitate if you want more details.

    I noticed that as well @MOUNTBLANC. That's what I did to fix it as well.

    If you set the sprite mask to a custom range the mask does work. Perhaps this info helps find the bug quicker.
