Creates a render target identifier.

Textures can be identified in a number of ways, for example a RenderTexture object, or a Texture object, or one of built-in render textures (BuiltinRenderTextureType), or a temporary render texture with a name (that was created using CommandBuffer.GetTemporaryRT).

RenderTargetIdentifier can be implicitly created from a RenderTexture reference, or a Texture reference, or a BuiltinRenderTextureType, or a name.

A RenderTargetIdentifier created from Texture reference is only valid when passed to CommandBuffer.SetGlobalTexture

See Also: CommandBuffer.SetRenderTarget, CommandBuffer.SetGlobalTexture.
