CommandBuffer equivalent to GL.InvalidateState?

    Hello,

    We have started drawing static geometry ourselves in a native plugin for better CPU performance. I had assumed that CommandBuffer.IssuePluginEventAndData was supposed to restore render state after the call to the plugin completed. It doesn't, or at least not perfectly on my version of Unity. I issued a bug report, but I just came across GL.InvalidateState. That is exactly what I want, perhaps my assumption was incorrect.

    Is there an API equivalent to GL.InvalidateState when using CommandBuffers? Alternatively, is there a way to use GL at a particular CameraEvent?

    I am currently using a hack-fix in which I render an invisible mesh with enough weird state to make Unity think it needs to change everything. It makes me paranoid.

    Thanks in advance
