What is URP? URP or Universal Render Pipeline is a prebuilt scriptable render pipeline made by Unity. Providing artist friendly workflows that let your quickly and easily create optimized graphics across a range of platforms. In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to upgrade your project to URP.

To begin we need to install the URP. Select window > package manager.

Search Universal and select install and let it run the install, once finished close the package manager window.

Now that the URP is installed create a folder to hold your render profile, named “Settings”

Right click the settings folder > Create > Rendering > Universal Render Pipeline > Pipeline Asset (Forward Renderer)

This will create your renderer

Now to implement the URP navigate Edit > Project Settings> Graphics > assign the newly created URP.

You could also go to Edit > Render Pipeline >URP > Upgrade Project Materials.
