Creating UI bounding boxes/target boxes around objects

    Anyone have any idea on the proper way to do this in VR? I'm making an x-wing style game with target boxes around the enemies.

    I wrote bounding box code that draws sprites on a Screenspace overlay UI canvas, but this code does not work in VR because it seems that cam.WorldToScreenPoint and cam.WorldToViewport don't seem to work consistently in VR.

    I also thought about attaching a canvas to every object that needs a bounding box, but there are downsides to this (performance, objects occluding the billboarded canvases)

    What would be the best solution for this use case?
