[Shadergraph] ScreenPosition node does not work when XR is active

Package: Shader Graph


Reproduction steps:
1. Open the attached project ("")
2. Open the "PortalVR" scene
3. Open the XR Plug-in Management settings (Edit -> Project Settings)
4. Disable Initialize XR on Startup and enter Play mode
5. Observe the Image in the Game Window
6. Enable Initialize XR on Startup and enter Play mode

Expected result: The portal looks similar/identical as with without VR
Actual result: The portal view is corrupted (see "Zovp0CSc9q.mp4" video)

Reproducible with: Shader Graph 7.7.1, 10.6.0, 11.0.0, 12.0.0 (2019.4.29f1, 2020.3.16f1, 2021.1.18f1, 2021.2.0b9)
Not reproducible with: 2022.1.0a5 (com.unity.visualeffectgraph@12.0.0 namespace errors)

  1. Resolution Note:

    "The ShaderGraph they are using is set up assuming their "alternate world" camera has the same aspect ratio and FOV as the main rendering camera, which is the requirement to be able to just do a "blit" between the cameras for the portal effect.

    However, when XR is enabled in their project, the alternate world camera does not render as an XR camera; it is still rendering at the original non-XR resolution and aspect ratio (and not multi eye I believe). So the blit ShaderGraph ends up stretching the result inappropriately.

    What they are trying to do is definitely going to require much more manual intervention on their part to handle the multiple eyes and the resolution differences. The blit approach could still work as long as their alternate world camera uses the exact same layout (i.e. XR split eye with same aspect ratio and FOV), but I think their shadergraph would have to take care to sample from the correct eye from the alternate world camera."

    The XR Team is evaluating XR specific Shadergraph nodes as a future feature that should handle cases like this.

    Also following the status of this. Did not expect shader functionality to be the issue when implementing VR portals.

    Hello !
    It's been 3 months since you acknowledged this issue now. However and despite of the number of votes there isn't any news about any advancement regarding this problem.
    May we be updated soon ? This bug prevent me to implement a critical feature for my game and is delaying it.
    Thank you !
