2. Install Package Manager > HDRP package > 7.2.0
3. Install Package Manager > Shader Graph > 7.2.0
4. Create Assets > right-click > Shader > PBR Graph
5. Create new node from New Shader Graph window > PBR Master > Vertex Position > Artistic > Adjustment > Channel Mixer
6. Select Shader Graph window > Channel Mixer > right-click > Convert To SubGraph
7. Double Click on Project > Assets > New Shader Sub Graph > New Shader Sub Graph window > Save Assets

Expected Result:

Stack Trace

MissingReferenceException: The object of type 'SubGraphAsset' has been destroyed but you are still trying to access it.
Your script should either check if it is null or you should not destroy the object.
