    Hi, I have no idea how I would go about doing this in the HDRP shader graph.
    I know how it is done in a few other engines, but not here.
    Has anyone fooled around with it?

    I had found that, it's not really what i am after. Requires a mask. I had set up something that blends between two materials, but if i place the asset on a transition between two terrain layers i am stuck.

    Would help to bump with pictures as I highly suspect that people are thinking of all kinds of things, at this point.

    Ok how about one better. Here is a video of exactly what I want and think should be part of the standard package

    How might this be done via the Universal Render Pipeline?

    That explains a lot of tech-heavy details (HDRP), but I think it is still not clear enough, and a bit fuzzy for those who are not familiar with shaders or HDRP or how to achieve the effect seen in that video above.


    One of the issues I personally had with this kind of thing when I first started to mess with shaders is that blending a rock into another rock that is also blended into the terrain would require consecutive depth buffers that I couldn't get around.

    How is this solved in URP or HDRP? -- Or is it?

    @Remy_Unity -- I kinda think this should be standard too:

    Any chance this is coming as part of a default setup with, perhaps, the new Terrain / Environment engine?
