    For anyone on 2022.3.X as a hotfix you can manually edit meta data of a VFX graph to link required render texture. Just look up render texture's meta data with guid, fileFormatVersion and mainObjectFileID and put those values into changed field on a VFX graph.

    What field is that? Just put regular 2d texture in required slot and see in version controll system what line has changed. This is the one you need to put data from render texture meta data.

    Hope it helps.
