    Hi.
    I want to make a gui menu where you can see through the main box (covering all the screen) to the camera witch is rendered in a small rect below. Now can i "Cut" a hole in the gui using a rect, or do i have to make a texture with a hole in it?.

    Why don't you render the camera to a texture and display that in the GUI?

    You can 'cut' a hole in the GUI, but it seems like not such a good idea, especially if you change resolutions - it would be problematic to manage.

    What are you trying to do exactly?

    I thought that render-to-a-texture was only a pro feature. If yes I can explain what i want to do with this image:

    Yes - RT's are a Pro only feature. You can create a PNG with the hole pre-cut in photoshop and it should work just fine.
