Render Pipeline Settings

This section assumes you created a new project using the URP template. The URP template project includes a collection of various URP assets, each pre-configured with different settings to represent different levels of quality. However, for Android apps running on our platform, the default configuration does not allow for a smooth 60 FPS experience in even the simplest scene. Follow these steps to configure the URP settings in your project to improve performance.


While using the Universal Render Pipeline is not required, it is strongly recommended because some features, such as Segmented Dimming, will not work properly when using Unity's legacy renderer


Delete the starter URP assets

To begin, simplify your project by removing the Pipeline and Renderer assets provided by the template. To do this, select the existing Render Pipeline assets, right-click, and choose Delete.

Delete the starter URP assets

Create a new pair of URP assets

From the Unity menu, select Assets > Create > Rendering > URP Asset (With Universal Renderer)

Configure Render Pipeline asset

Select the Pipeline asset you just created and tweak the Rendering, Quality, Lighting, and Shadows settings, removing or reducing things unnecessary for the look and feel of your project.

Set the default Scriptable Pipeline

Open your Project's Graphics settings (Edit > Project Settings then select Graphics), and set the Scriptable Render Pipeline Settings to the URP pipeline asset you created in the previous step.
