[Terrain] Can't paint Details in HDRP. Might need appropriate shaders to be included in package

Package: Scriptable Render Pipeline HD



Details dont show up in HDRP. Either they aren't created or are not rendered

Additional info:

1. Open Unity 2018.3
2. Download HDRP package from Package Manager
3. Create a new HDRP Pipeline Asset via Project Window context menu. Right-click -> Create->Rendering->HDRP Pipeline Asset
3. In Project Settings -> Graphics, set the render pipeline asset to the HDRP Asset you just created
4. Create a Terrain
5. Select the Terrain and go to Details tab
6. Add a new Detail Grass texture
7. Paint the Grass texture on the Terrain

Result: Grass isn't rendered

  1. Resolution Note:

    We have reviewed this request and are pleased to say it’s already in our roadmap. We are aiming to release this feature in 2021.1, but this is only a guideline and may change.

    I feel kind of gaslit on this... Am I the only one thinks it's crazy to not be able to paint FREAKIN GRASS natively out of the box? How is this acceptable?

    Why you have let this go for more than 2 days, let alone years, unfixed is astonishing. This is core functionality. No one has addressed this issue in the popular threads to even suggest a half viable work around. I have tried 2021 alpha and it is Still not fixed. Honestly, what do you expect us to do? There seems to be no acceptable workaround, or combinations of workarounds paid or free. Even nature renderer does not re-enable the ability to paint grass with the proper techniques for rendering in place. This being neglected for so long has stopped a $300 total purchase i was going to make in the asset store. Truly leaves a bad taste about this whole endeavor. I left Unreal because of things like this. Unity was supposed to be the functional one.

    This has been broken for so long, pretty unacceptable on such a critical terrain feature

    Same here! Using Unity 2019.3.9f1. It would be great to be able to draw details in HDRP.

    Still in Unity 2019.2.15f1. Is it really impossible to draw grass in HDRP-project?
