Texture streaming

Fusion Industries prototyping Addons


This addon shows how to share images data with Runner.SendReliableDataToPlayer:

  • either at the creation of an image: the image is sent to all connected users
  • or upon the connection of a user joining the session late: the image is sent to this user only.

A StreamTextureManager must be included in the scene, ideally under the NetworkRunner hierarchy (otherwise, its runner attribute has to be defined).

To send an image, use `StreamTextureManager.SendTexture(textureReceiver, textureData, allPlayers), with:

  • textureReceiver: a component implementing IStreamTextureReceiver, implementing Object to be able to find a network object to which forward the data when they are received, and ReceiveTexture(Texture2D texture) through which the actual texture is received
  • texture: can be either a RenderTexture, a Texture2D, or a byte array
  • players: a list of players to which send the data


To illustrate the usage, the CameraPicture component can receive locally an image (from a PhotoRecorder component), and will then forward it to all connected users.

If a user joins late, the state authority will forward the image data to this user only. A check in the FixedUpdateNetwork ensures that there is always a state authority (if the original author leaves).


The demo scene can be found in Assets\Photon\FusionAddons\TextureStreaming\Demo\Scenes\PhotoCamera.unity.

To shoot a picture, select the PhotoRecorder, once connected, and click on the Shoot picture button in the inspector, on the PhotoRecorder component.
