Materials texture becomes invisible when materials shader has been set from 'Particles/Standard Surface or Unlit'

Visual Effects - Legacy


Steps to reproduce (or watch attached video):

1. Open attached project ""
2. Create a new Material
3. Set materials shader to 'Particles/Standard Surface' or 'Particles/Standard Unlit'
4. Set materials shader to 'Particles/Alpha Blended' or 'Particles/Additive'
5. Drag 'star-sprite' from Project View to materials texture reference
6. Look at materials preview

Actual result: particles are invisible - once the materials shader had been set to Particles/Standard Surface or Particles/Standard Unlit, the texture of the material will be invisible with different shaders. Re-referencing the texture doesn't fix this, the material has to be re-created.

Reproducible with: 2017.3.0a2, 2017.3.0b9, 2018.1.0a4

    This claims to be fixed. It's not.
