substance designer to indigo renderer

Post by specialcafe » Tue Oct 18, 2016 10:24 pm

Hello, I am thinking to make some textures with substance designer (I have to learn it first). In c4d, there is a plugin for substance designer but that works only in standard and physical renderer because of some substance shader and etc in it.
Is there a way to convert that material to indigo material?

thanks

Substance simply renders image maps, or am I wrong?
If you put these maps inside your Cindigo material channels; everything should be fine? Do you use the interactive realtime render preview window? Or the interactive region render in the C4D editor window? I am not sure which one forces automatically reloading of textures.

Sorry for delay, yeah you are right but I was thinking maybe there is different algorithm

thanks for the answer

you're wrong :o
using the plug-in, you can have a complete texture workflow control coming from nodes you have published in first in substanceDesigner. :D
I done a test, just for fun

in first I modeled something, in this case I use rhino (for Mac !) and I export the file on win :
Image

then I unwrap the different parts
Image

after that, I was able to paint something using substance painter and generate differents maps
Image

I constructed a texture workflow using substanceDesigner, with published nodes like : blur, level, contrast...
Image

importing the flux via the plug-in :
1 I can tweak texture inside c4d directly with feature coming from Substance's file
2 I build a first Indigo base texture : phong or diffuse
3 I build a coated Indigo texture using the 2 in substrate
4 I blend the 3 with a pur phong nk.data profil using a map
Image

here is the result

Regarding multi composed Indigo's texture, the export's time is increased drastically, so
it's better to convert to external's textures when it's ready.
by example I have measured :
160 seconds with multi-textures vs 35 seconds with external's textures.
