Setting viewport texture to a viewport?

Here is what I’m currently trying:

var sprite3d =
var viewport = 
var viewport_texture =
sprite3d.texture = viewport_texture

However I’m getting the following error:

0:00:05:0418 - Condition ' !vp ' is true. returned: Size2()
Time: 0:00:05:0418
C Error: Condition ' !vp ' is true. returned: Size2()
C Source: scene\main\viewport.cpp:106
C Function: ViewportTexture::get_size

Makes me think that maybe the viewport_texture isn’t actually using the viewport and isn’t displaying any texture. Any help appreciated.

You never assign the viewport_texture to anything. How is the viewport meant to know, that it should use it?

Have your read this?

I updated it but I didn’t think that adding the texture to a sprite was relevant, I would still get the same error

The problem here is that the viewport texture doesn’t know what the node path is relative to, and as far as I can tell the only thing configuring that is the packed scene system. Not sure this can be fixed without modifying the source code.
