I have a camera that renders a simple model to a RenderTexture. I then use that RenderTexture as a texture for my UI with a RawImage component. However, sometimes I disable my UI and therefore you can not see the RenderTexture.
My question is: Does the camera continue to render to the texture in the background even when the texture is not visible?
If I understand how this works I believe it should. If so, simply disabling the camera should prevent it from rendering in the background?
Camera.currentto confirm that your RenderTexture camera is still rendering it. Try one of these and feel free to report the results you find as an answer. \$\endgroup\$
