Draws a fully procedural geometry on the GPU.
DrawProceduralIndirect does a draw call on the GPU, without any vertex or index buffers.
The amount of geometry to draw is read from a ComputeBuffer. Typical use
case is generating arbitrary amount of data from a ComputeShader and
then rendering that, without requiring a readback to the CPU.
This is only useful on DirectX 11 level hardware where shaders can read
arbitrary data from ComputeBuffer buffers.
Buffer with arguments,
bufferWithArgs, has to have four integer numbers at given
vertex count per instance, instance count, start vertex location, start instance location.
This very much maps to Direct3D11 DrawInstancedIndirect function.
Note that this call executes immediately, similar to Graphics.DrawMeshNow. It uses currently set render target, transformation matrices and currently set shader pass.
