    I just reported this, can't build to WebGL with URP.

    Don't know if reported before but this is a lot of issues for a Tech release. :(

    I had to upgrade to 2021.2 because you finally, after 3 years, decided to add async GPU readback to OpenGL. However, in 2021.2, something is terribly broken. I get the error

    constantly. Building fails because of it. Anyone else running into this?

    Filed a bug report with the editor log: Case 1380047

    Edit:
    The issue was with a custom package (UnityGLTF) that was placed in Packages/. The issue was fixed by removing that package, and adding it anew from git.

    The fix is in 2021.2.2f1 which will likely come out today or tomorrow.

    The latest 2021.2 release is currently 2021.2.1f1, .2f1 is due this week. We're aiming to ship weekly updates for the Tech stream so .3f1 is slated for next week.

    Thanks for the report. Could you please share the issue ID here?

    So, just tried 2021.2.2f1 and great that the editor input delay bug is gone.

    However, I still can't use mp4 videos. @LeonhardP - any news on when a fix is coming for this? Or if there is a workaround?

    I have an H.264 video that my Unity iOS project uses. Unity crashes when I try and open the project, or if I try and import the video.

    Thanks

    2021.2 (with URP template at least) is quite unresponsive as listed in the known issues.

    Unity 2021.2.2f1

    RectTransform gizmo myhem continues:

    1. No Gizmo visible when object (Image in this case) is selected (yeah, you got this something in the left, lower side of the screen)

    rect_transform_fkup_1.png

    2. If I start changing Pos X in the Inspector - gizmo shows up

    rect_transform_fkup_2.png

    3. When I grab it and start moving around, after a while, it disappears again

    rect_transform_fkup_3.png

    Yeah... it's like basic stuff guys...

    Unity 2021.2.2f1

    Added a script to game object. Set a breakpoint for debugging. Attached to Unity instance, VS Community 2017. Switched back to Unity and pressed "Play" mode.... Unity hangs up forever:

    upload_2021-11-14_0-22-13.png

    Killed Unity via Task Manager.

    Now, each time I click on the "Play" mode, Unity hangs up....

    This is a joke ppl! This is just beyond everything how this release is messed up!

    Soft shadows aren't working on Android and iOS. Is there a fix for that in the pipeline?

    EDIT: I found this issue. Any plans to get this fixed on 12.x/2021.2.x?

    There's a dramatic rendering regression in 2021.2 according to the profiler. Our game went from 1000FPS to less than 60FPS at times. This is the exact same game, exact same configuration.

    Before
    After

    I'm running into another issue with 2021.2.2f1 on macOS (Big Sur Intel & Monterey Apple Silicon):

    If I switch between the Scene and Game views while in play mode, the editor will hang and I have to force quit.
    I haven't managed to reproduce it when trying to create a repro project... but if I open my game project on 2020.3.22f1 it doesn't happen. Any ideas?

    Hi,
    I'm trying to swich Volume System Update Frequency to ViaScripting but i'm not sure how i'm supposed to approach this. What function should I be calling in order to update a volume after I modified it at runtime? (for example, I have a dropdown of color filters [color grading presets] and I want the volume to update when the player chooses one of those filters instead of every frame)

    I figured out a way to reproduce this. It happens when the Scene/Game views are docked in the same group like this:

    Screen Shot 2021-11-16 at 11.36.54.png

    Then while in play mode, repeatedly switch between those views with the mouse or (cmd+1, cmd+2) and the editor will hang.

    If you put the Game view in a separate tab group or in a different window it doesn't hang but sometimes it takes a moment to respond after switching.

    I've been able to reproduce it on a fresh project using the 3D Sample Scene (URP) template. I'm seeing this with 2021.2.2f1 running Big Sur (Intel) and Monterey (Apple Silicon). I haven't tried other combinations.

    EDIT: for clarity
    EDIT2: Another way to make it hang is to put the Game View in separate window and resize it while in play mode.
    EDIT3: This only happens when VSync is enabled in the game view.

    It turns out it only happens in the circumstances I mentioned if VSync is enabled in the Game View. I submitted a bug report for it (Case 1381375).

    I was on the beta and everything seemed fine, but when I upgraded to 2021.2.2f1 shadows and screen space reflection flicker very aggressively now. Nothing about the settings changed other than porting the project forward to 2021.2.2f1 from it's beta version. Any ideas?

    Hello,

    Try building again immediately after. I think that’s the same issue I have but it builds the second time so idk.

    Interesting how the 2021.2 Betas seem to be more stable and less bug ridden than the official 2021.2 releases...
    Like, how does that even happen? o_O

    Anyway, how is 2021.2.3f1 compared to 2021.2.2f1? Any better? Worse?

    I so bad wanna upgrade to 2021.2.x but I don't want all these bugs. :oops:

    GraphicEditor.cs:83 NullReferenceException upload_2021-11-19_11-35-8.png

    Exception Case
    upload_2021-11-19_11-30-16.png

    When using Inspector Class that inherited GraphicEditor, it occurs if the CustomerEditor target of Inspector Class does not inherit Graphic Class.

    I couldn't find any related information in the upgrading manual. I'm sorry if I didn't find it

    An error occurs in the newly created DrawAnchorsOnSceneView(SceneView sceneView) function.
    This function assumes that the target must inherit the Graphic Class.

    I think it's more because only a small group of users use the betas and as soon as the first release appears, a much larger group of users updates where bugs are found that were overlooked (or not reported) in the betas.

    I think he was going on about the regression bugs, where in beta it was fine, but for official version there is problem..

    Some bugs that have now been found were probably already in the betas and were only found, or only occur under certain circumstances. This can possibly lead to the falsely believing that it is a regress of the release version. But that does not rule out real regressions.
    The reason for my posting is that I have the feeling that some people believe that due to the many bug reports here, the release version is less stable than the beta, which I don't believe.

    2021.2.3 is way better, at least I can now see my SceneView windows. But still it weirdly crashes when doing undo. Couldn't repro with test undos on empty scene and suddenly crash ended. Still need to investigate.

    Every game touches different parts of the engine. But in my case I had to go back to the beta because of several bugs that were introduced in the release.

    The "Render Objects" pass for Forward Renderers are not working anymore using this setup

    We were using the renderer feature in order to draw the UI over the PostProcessing
    And now it doesnt works (on VR mode when you put the headset)
    Also usinf "RenderAfterPostprocessing" seems to render "correctly" just that everything is drawn on a single eye, so is not workign at all

    Yes, a fix has already been merged to the repository and will be backported in one of the next vendoring updates coming to 21.2.

    Thanks a lot for the report. We'll look into it.

    Thanks a lot! The issue has been reproduced internally: https://issuetracker.unity3d.com/product/unity/issues/guid/1381316

    Very glad to hear that!

    A fix for a similar sounding issue with the deferred renderer landed in 2021.2.2f1: https://issuetracker.unity3d.com/product/unity/issues/guid/1354681/

    Could you please submit a bug report for your use case so we can investigate?

    Should be fixed in 2021.2.3f1.

    It's being looked into by the devs. No ETA on a fix/resolution at this point.

    Thanks for submitting a bug report for this issue on top of posting here. We'll look into it. For future references, please share the issue ID of your report when you bring the issue up on the forum.

    Something is wrong with asset previews.

    Prefab previews are blueish or sometimes black. Some of them are ok, but in such case I think this error is logged:
    I am not sure if this is fault of keyword changes, but game window and large inspector preview is fine.
    Additionaly I made custom window and it's using prefab and custom previews and this error is spammed sometimes:
    or there was error about something like "DrawPreviewInteral", but I can't reproduce it again.

    Also the same tool or custom editors now started to throw these kind of errors:
    // EDIT
    Is support for light editor theme officially dropped? It is even worse than previously, I really do not like this light blue for active ui elements.

    It could be bearable if at least icons where dark, but instead it's not just unpleasing, but tiring to watch. Still this is nothing if we compare this to new search in shader graph window:


    Placeholder text in search is shifted and active element is almost impossible to read...
    Search itself could be just a bit smarter with guessing what I need.

    I don't buy that, how do you explain going from Beta to release and the Editor has a huge delay. That was not in the beta lol.

    Still waiting to see if the WebGL shader build error is fixed yet.

    I don’t know, maybe you haven't been paying attention to this thread Lol! The first page of this thread was almost literally about that bug even the Unity Dev could reproduce without any extra info immediately. They didn’t do enough testing especially which such major issues, period.

    Edit: I’m gonna chalk up this rocky launch because we still in Covid year, although last year Covid was ravaging the world but even I don’t remember such a launch with Unity 2020.

    Hello Again @LeonhardP ,

    I wonder if the helpful information we sent on the ticket about this issue reaches you? No response was given. This issue still persists in version 3f. It has been negatively affecting our work on Unity 2021 for weeks. Please now take a look at this error as well. As I mentioned on the ticket, this error has been present since beta 13.

    For ticket:
    Issue ID: 1372327

    Thank you.

    Hey there, I've tied 2021.2.3 so far so good. Excepts the Pixel Perfect Camera component with Upscale Render Texture is not working with Post Processing stack. The image get stretched far beyond the screen bounds. This issue is very critical for me, maybe someone can suggest a workaround?

    We have issue with polygon collider 2D, and I think it is specific to Unity 2021.2.3f1 because I did not see this happening before.

    Basically, When you move game object with polygoncollider2D and move them around in scene using scene view, polygon collider gizmo (the actual shape) does not follow the movement and just stay on the previous position. If you toggle the collider on off the collider shape gizmo resets back to normal.

    This is not a critical bug in terms of runtime, but it is still super annoying and confusing as hell when you work in the editor making you think, "oh no, I moved child object instead of parent" but no... it is just Unity scene view bug.

    This bug is sooooo easy to reproduce and happens on any machine we have so I don't think it needs bug report.
