    Hi, I was bit experimenting with command buffers but I didn't find a way to properly render stuff to shadow maps. Light object has LightEvent.BeforeShadowMap event but no way to get the shadow projection matrices to properly transform the object to the map.

    Am I missing something or is it impossible to draw object shadows using command buffers?

    Hi, I'm curious about using command buffers to render objects from a native plugin and still have shadows in unity.
    Have you found a solution to this ?

    Thanks :)

    Nope, it seems to be impossible, because there is no way to get the camera's shadow projections. DrawMesh is the only way :<
