Using RenderDoc with Unity

RenderDoc is a stand-alone graphics debugging tool

Getting Started
– Download standalone https://renderdoc.org/builds
– Install it
– Start Unity 5.3 or later (I tested with 5.4beta.f2)
– Right click over the Game- or Scenewindow title, RenderDoc option should be displayed in the menu, Select it
unity-load-renderdoc
– New icon appears next to “Maximize on Play” or “Gizmos”
unity-capture-renderdoc
– Click that icon to capture next frame into RenderDoc (takes a while to start)
– RenderDoc opens, double click the thumbnail in “Captures collected list” to select capture
– All kind of random data & magical numbers are displayed 🙂
