In this latest version, we have some great new updates and bugs fixes!

Updates

  • Support for RenderHeads’ AVPro 2 Video version 2, including enhanced Unity Timeline integration.

  • Support for Light Probes in the Built-In Render Pipeline.
  • Improved shadow generation from multiple light sources and different light source types.

Dependencies

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where projects rendering to OpenVR 1.0.1 would not render Depthkit clips for both eyes of a VR headset.
  • Fixed a bug where only one instance of a duplicated clip would appear in Edit or Play mode, and adjusting parameters on one object would affect both.

Thanks for the update! Are there any performance benefits to using AVPro instead of Unity VideoPlayer (especially on the iOS platform)?

Hi @TakahiroHorikawa

In the testing we have done for iOS, we haven’t seen an impact on performance based solely on which video player is used, but we also haven’t explicitly tested this.

The performance enhancements in this release which pause playback or disable rendering for off-camera assets support both Unity and AVPro video players.
