Discussion Dynamic Resolution using the built-in render pipeline

    Hi there,

    We are struggling with the performance of our WebGL project that is using the Built-in render pipeline. We would like to use Dynamic Resolution scaling for our 3D environment so we can improve the performance for our users.

    It seems that the only way to achieve this with the built in render pipeline is to use devicePixelRatio on the UnityIntance. Sadly this will also scale the UI and make it unreadable.

    Is there anything we can do to just scale the 3D renderer, and not the UI layer?

    My first idea: use two cameras, one for the UI and one for the world. Can‘t advise on the setup though.

    An alternative would be to render either of the two to a rendertexture, and place a quad with the rendertexture as needed above or below the other content. But I would expect this to kill performance in WebGL more than two cameras … but this is just a gut feeling.
