SkinnedMeshRenderer property sharedMesh is null when created via script

Graphics - General


Reproduction steps:
1. Download project "" and open in Unity
2. Open scene "testscene"
3. Enter Play mode

Expected: SkinnedMeshRenderer property sharedMesh should be initialized
Actual: code line "newSkinnedMeshRenderer.sharedMesh = new Mesh();" triggers error in Unity console:
"SkinnedMeshRenderer: Trying to set a mesh ("") that is unfit for use with SkinnedMeshRenderer. Most likely it doesn't have Skin information and/or is only assigned to the renderer during runtime, in which case Unity isn't aware of its use with SkinnedMeshRenderer. Mark the mesh as Readable or assign it to the renderer in the Editor before building.

    This is NOT fixed in 2017.2 - why isn't there a way to mark it as a regression?

    I used 2017.1.1f1 and everything was fine. Today I installed 2017.2.0f3 and: kaboom, this bug appeared.

    Oooo! It's fixed in 2017.3b2. It seems this fix never made it into 2017.2 though - I hope it will make it in soon.

    Not fixed in 2017.2.0f2 either (tested with project above)

    Breaks pretty much all mesh baking!

    Despite the indication above, this does NOT seem to be fixed in 2017.2.0f1.

    Reproduction: Download the free asset UMA Multipurpose Avatar 2.0, import into a fresh project, open any of the example scenes and run.

    Could you please indicate which version of 2017.2.x a fix should be included in?
