Description

Allows you to set the render order for objects to avoid transparent sort issues. JS version has been extended to allow an option to affect all children of a GameObject but removes the option to affect materials other than sharedMaterial, as that was not necessary in my project. Feel free to modify.

Notes

  • The default transparent queue is 3000.
  • Lower queues will be rendered first, higher ones later.
  • This change will affect the shared material, so you have to make separate materials for separate render queues.
  • In the editor, this change will persist across runs. However, the scripts still need to be attached to the correct objects in a build in order to work there.

C# (By Daniel Brauer)

using UnityEngine;
 
[AddComponentMenu("Effects/SetRenderQueue")]
[RequireComponent(typeof(Renderer))]
 
public class SetRenderQueue : MonoBehaviour {
   [Tooltip("Background=1000, Geometry=2000, AlphaTest=2450, Transparent=3000, Overlay=4000")]
   public int queue = 1;
 
   public int[] queues;
 
   void Start() {
      Renderer renderer = GetComponent<Renderer>();
      if (!renderer || !renderer.sharedMaterial || queues == null)
         return;
      renderer.sharedMaterial.renderQueue = queue;
      for (int i = 0; i < queues.Length && i < renderer.sharedMaterials.Length; i++)
         renderer.sharedMaterials[i].renderQueue = queues[i];
   }
 
   void OnValidate() {
      Start();
   }
 
}
