    Using substance in Ark

    Hi,

    I wondered if anyone had thought about using substance in Ark yet?

    I thought I would start just by trying to import the assets into an ark level and taking a look - but the plugin is engine 4.8 / 4.9.

    Has anyone got the 4.5 compatible plugin, or got substance to work with Ark?

    Substance painter or designer? Or what substance you talking about?

      Sorry for not being specific.

      I guess either, since they require the plugin, as far as I know?

      Has anyone gotten the plugin to work and is using the substance tools?

      I try to pull in atlantis to the ark dev kit, bu it requires the plugin, and I cant fingd anything older than 4.8/4.9

        You dont need a plugin. Depends on what you are doing. For example, i texture all my models in substance, then just export the maps and import into Unreal. (ADK)

          Ah thanks Dirten.
          Im sorry I'm a little bit new to this designing lark - maybe I do things the wrong way round?

          I tried to view the Substance atlantis demo project, and got it working in unreal 4.8.
          I had hoped it was possible to edit substance materials directly in the dev kit and then wanted to try to figure out a way to import to ark. I thought it would be nice to have something already to play with.

            you "export as bitmap" (generally .png) click the gear icon -> Export Outputs

            even using substance, like in Unity is dumb because the substances take too long to load most the time... of course you can make a highly optimized substance.. for example if you wanted animated substances (iam Unity dev, dunno much about Unreal)

              Hi

              I didnt really understand this workflow?
              I am in unreal and the substance textures are sbsar? They require the substance plugin to show up.
              Are you saying its possible to convert them to bitmaps? I dont see that option?
