Author Topic: 3ds Max Plugin Update - Beta plugin (2017 Version)  (Read 66721 times)

This was happening while rendering a sequence locally, unfortunately.

Hello,
I've installed plugin update on my 3ds max 2012 - and it went OK;)
But I didn't test it yet.
Should it work correctly on 3ds 2012?
Or it was just luck that installation went OK;)

HI,

This should work. Please let us know if you have an issue.

Cheers,

Unfortunately...
when I try to load ".sbsar" into my substance slot in 3ds 2012 with updated plugin I have error "Substance error: g_CreateSubstanceSBSBinFileFromASM didn't worked".
And crash when I close 3ds max is happening.
I can send minidump if developers are interested...

Hi,

Installation
Be sure to have administrator privileges in order to be able to add files to 3dsMax sub-directories.
1. Launch 3dsMax using right click->Run as administrator.
2. Use "MAXScript->Run Script" to execute the .mzp file.
3. Click on "Customize->Customize User Interface". Click on "Toolbars" tab.
4. In "Category", select "Substance" and drag & drop "PBR to vray material" in 3dsMax UI to add it as a button.
Optional: you can create your own toolbar by clicking on "New" Button.

The setup file doesn't let me install this to 3ds 2018's folder. Is it possible to use this plug in with 2018 version or are there any workarounds? Also, is it possible to use the substances with the new Arnold render?

HI,

We will have an update for the max updater. Also, we are working a new plugin for max which will be max v2. It will be out later this summer. We will have the max updater fix for 2018 coming soon.

For Arnold in 2018, you can now use the metallic/roughness outputs from a Substance directly so the setup is very simple.

I installed substance - 3ds - max - updater - 2.0.1.
However, I get an error when starting Max.

I got the same error message as rxu05346.


Same message to me as well.

Hi Everyone,

Very sorry for this issue. I ran into this as well. We had an issue and it's been fixed. I updated the link at the beginning of thread with the correct version. Please re-download the updater from the link in the first post.

Cheers,
Wes
