Using CopyTexture on textures with different MSAA sample counts throws an error



How to reproduce:
1. Open the attached "" project
2. Enter the Play Mode
3. Check the Game View

Expected results: the Game View window is green
Actual results: the Game View window is red and there is an error in the Console

Reproducible with: 2020.2.0b11, 2020.2.3f1, 2021.1.0b4, 2021.2.0a3
Not reproducible with: 2019.4.19f1, 2020.1.17f1, 2020.2.0b10
Could not test with: 2018.4.31f1 (project not downgradable)

-The error thrown is CopyTexture called with mismatching sample count per pixel (src 2 dst 1). UnityEngine.GUIUtility:ProcessEvent (int,intptr,bool&)

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2021.2):

    I've managed to work around this problem by making a native plugin that directly calls the glCopyImageSubData function that Unity should be calling on Android, circumventing Graphics.CopyTexture. That also allowed me to copy more than one layer in a texture array in one call by using srcDepth, which Graphics.CopyTexture doesn't expose for some reason.

    I think what Graphics.CopyTexture isn't considering when it's throwing that error is the fact that MSAA gets resolved immediately on mobile tiled renderers, so even though the RenderTextures in Unity are labelled as multi sampled, it isn't stored that way in memory and they can be copied without issue.
