Custom Renderer Features - One way to customise the Universal Render Pipeline (URP) is by writing custom Scriptable Render Passes. A typical example of this could involve rendering some objects to a separate off-screen texture, which we could then sample later - either in shaders used by any objects in the scene, or as a fullscreen pass to composite it with the camera/screen.
