Today, I will show you how to upgrade a standard project to URP project.

Create a standard 3D project. Add some GameObjects to a scene.

Go To Package Manager, Packages -> Unity Registry, and find Universal RP. Install it.

Create a new folder called Settings and create a Universal Render Pipeline Asset.

Go to Edit ->Project Settings.

Next go to Graphics, and assign the Universal Render Pipeline we just created.

From there materials in your project may turn pink.

If this happens, go to Edit -> Render Pipeline -> Universal Render Pipeline -> Upgrade Project Materials to UniversalRP Materials.

Everything should go back to normal.
