    The most important part of the foliage creation are :
    1. Textures (specially leaf)
    2. Material colors and tree shadows

    Try reopening editor or scene or creating a new profile or re assigning current profile into lighting box

    It's strange because it shows a profile (my own created one) in the helper object.

    A really nice tool and I would definitely support further tools that looked at different assets like prism etc...

    Anyway, some images. :)

    Scriptable Render Pipeline is an advance feature but it's experimental now. I think after 1 year we can use it in Action

    Visual Shader Editor is not comparable with Amplify Shader Editor. Just use Amplify Shader Editor for your shader development

    My HD Render Pipe line experiences :

    Compatible :
    * All Post Processing Stack 2 effects

    Non-Compatible :
    * Stochastic SSR
    * Volumetric Light
    * Sun Shaft
    * All custom Shaders (Tessellation terrain, Foliage,...)

    The most important part of the upgrading to the HD RP is the materials (shaders). Currently a lot of the shaders is not available in HDRP : Tree shaders,Terrain shader ...

    Also most Asset Store tools will be deprecated for HD RP . For example : Amplify Shader Editor, Shader Forge, Terrain shaders ...

    So all publishers must be upgrade whole tools into the new shader language. It's not too simple task or maybe it's not possible

    The performance in my simple cubit test was same as Legacy rendering mode. But the quality for lights and material is much better in HD RP


    Lightweight RP :
    Compatible :
    Some effects from Post Processing Stack 2:
    * Bloom,Auto Exposure,Vignette,Chromatic Aberration ...

    is not Compatible :
    * All other image effects (Sun shaft,Global Fog, ...)
    * Terrain shader and all other custom shaders

    Finally i think new Render pipelines currently is not complete and ready to use in Action. So just focus on old render pipelines if you want to make production level games . After 1 year, i think we can switch to new render pipelines

    Thank you for reporting on this. Please post future HD RP observations here as well, if you feel so inclined.

    Hi @aliyeredon2 , id love a tutorial on the volume blending on the post process layer. I'm not sure where to start, if I have the layer set to default or everything the effect looks great but has the warning about being slow but if I set to any other layer there seems no effect at all.

    Some info/tips on this would be really useful.

    Yes i already touched most of them. Currently without terrain and tree shaders it's not enjoyable
    Also Shader Graph is another useful tool that is not available for HDRP yet
