Issue ID




[XR SDK][URP]Game view is rendered grey for left eye and black for right eye when using Single Pass Instanced and Render Feature

Package: Scriptable Render Pipeline Universal


Reproduction steps:
1. Open the user's attached project ("")
2. Load "Scene"
3. Make sure Rendering Mode is set to Single Pass Instanced in XR Plug-in Management provider's settings
4. Enter play mode

Expected result: the Game view is properly rendered for both eyes
Actual result: the Game view is rendered grey for the left eye and black for the right eye

Reproducible with: URP 10.5.0, 11.0.0, 12.0.0 (2020.3.8f1, 2021.1.7f1, 2021.2.0a17)
Could not test with: 2018.4.30f1 (XR SDK not available), 2019.4.27f1 (compilation errros after downgrade)

- reproducible with MockHMD and Oculus plug-in loaders
- setting render mode to Multi Pass renders the Game view correctly
- the issue is not reproducible with "Before Rendering Opaques" Render Pass Event

  1. Resolution Note (fix version URP master branch):

    The grey on one eye and black on the other eye is solved by restoring XR SPI keywords. Some keywords are not restored correctly in the case of using cmd,blit.

    For anyone with the same issue, I have created a tutorial video in this thread:

    Confirmed as still present in 2021.3.11 with URP 12.1.7.

    This page only states that it's fixed in "master branch", but given the time since last comment that might as well be synonymous with "not fixed"?

    It doesn't look like Unity is going to fix the broken Blit for SPI but Unity did work around it on URP SSAO Renderer Feature using DrawMesh instead of Blit.

    I tried to make simpler example of this type of usage here, hope it helps someone:

    This sample just implements simple saturation effect that still works while using VR + SPI.

    Same issue here, this make me not being able to update unity, because my project heavily depends on this feature
