public method ConvertToEquirect(equirect: RenderTexture, eye: Camera.MonoOrStereoscopicEye): void;
public void ConvertToEquirect(RenderTexture equirect, Camera.MonoOrStereoscopicEye eye);


equirectRenderTexture to render the equirect format to.
eyeA Camera eye corresponding to the left or right eye for stereoscopic rendering, or neither for monoscopic rendering.


Converts the render texture to equirectangular format (both stereoscopic or monoscopic equirect). The left eye will occupy the top half and the right eye will occupy the bottom. The monoscopic version will occupy the whole texture. Texture dimension must be of type TextureDimension.Cube.

public class CreateEquirect : MonoBehaviour { public RenderTexture cubemap; public RenderTexture cubemap2; public RenderTexture equirect; public bool renderStereo = true; public float stereoSeparation = 0.064f;

void LateUpdate() { //assume cubemap and cubemap2 are rendered using Camera.RenderToCubemap() for left/right eyes

if (equirect == null) return;

if (renderStereo) { cubemap.ConvertToEquirect(equirect, Camera.MonoOrStereoscopicEye.Left); cubemap2.ConvertToEquirect(equirect, Camera.MonoOrStereoscopicEye.Right); } else { cubemap.ConvertToEquirect(equirect, Camera.MonoOrStereoscopicEye.Mono); } } }
