[Metal][VFX] Preview Creating a VFX Graph Asset throws an error



Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a HDRP project
2. Create a new VFX Graph Asset (Assets>Create>Visual Effects>Visual Effect Graph)
3. Press Enter to confirm the name

Note: If it doesn't reproduce try dragging in the first created VFX Graph into the Scene and repeat steps 2-3.

Expected result: The VFX Graph asset is created without issues
Actual result: The following error is thrown: "\[Worker#] Metal: Vertex or Fragment Shader "Hidden/VFX/New VFX 2/System/Output Particle Quad" requires a ComputeBuffer at index 5 to be bound, but none provided. Skipping draw calls to avoid crashing."

    This applies to URP also. The ComputeBuffer at index "5" message also varies which index is not bound depending on the effect you're authoring.
