Immediate Mode Not Working in Latest Unity version

The immediate mode example in the docs doesn't work with the latest version of Unity. It was working for me prior to updating Unity.

Expected behaviour:

After creating a new, empty scene and then adding a game object with the Immediate Mode Example script attached to it, I should see three Volumetric3D lines appear on screen when the game runs.

Actual behaviour: 

Nothing appears on screen when the game runs, even though the IM Monitor registers a camera, material and a command buffer.


Reporting a bug? please specify Unity version:
2021.2.7f1
Reporting a bug? please specify Shapes version:
4.1.1
Reporting a bug? please specify Render Pipeline:
Built-in render pipeline

Gah, turns out this issue was due to the usual Unity Package Manager shenanigans.


I had foolishly thought that I could upgrade Shapes to 4.1.1 by just importing the latest release from Package Manager over the top of my existing Shapes folder. This doesn't work.


I had to delete the entire Shapes directory, then re-import the entire package. After doing this, immediate mode started working.

It's weird that all other Shapes functionality was working fine for me - only immediate mode was failing.

In any case - all good now - Package Management in Unity is just broken. Sorry you had to deal with this noise :/
