public function SetComputeBufferParam(computeShader: ComputeShader, kernelIndex: int, name: string, buffer: ComputeBuffer): void;
public void SetComputeBufferParam(ComputeShader computeShader, int kernelIndex, string name, ComputeBuffer buffer);


computeShader ComputeShader to set parameter for.
kernelIndex Which kernel the buffer is being set for. See ComputeShader.FindKernel.
name Name of the buffer variable in shader code.
buffer Buffer to set.


Adds a command to set an input or output buffer parameter on a ComputeShader.

Buffers and textures are set per-kernel. Use ComputeShader.FindKernel to find kernel index by function name.

Setting a compute buffer to a kernel will leave the append/consume counter value unchanged. To set or reset the value, use ComputeBuffer.SetCounterValue.
