Author Topic: Cant see my model once i change my mode to Iray in Substance Painter 2  (Read 4922 times)

So I textured this model in substance painter and halfway through I was checking the render in iray and it was working fine, the model was visible but once i completed the textures and changed the mode to iray, I cant see my model, I just see the environment. I have modeled this truck twice thinking it will work second time but it just isnt working. I really want to render using iray as i cant match the lighting in arnold or other renderer. I'm super upset can anyone help me out?? :'( I can send you the file also if needed.?
PAINTING MODE:
 

IRAY MODE: I cant see the truck only the environment is visible. but when i change the shader to pbr-material-layering-10mats, I can see the truck but without any textures??



With pbr-material-layering-10mats shader

Can you switch it to the standard pbr-metal-rough shader? It may be that the opacity makes it entirely transparent with the alpha blending shader.

Not working I changed it to standard pbr metal rough and it still doesn't show anything. I thought maybe my computer is not supporting or there my be problem with my computer but I opened it in other's laptop and it still doesnt show anything? I spent hours texturing it and I cant render good images of it. This is my first model texturing by the way.   :(


What happens if you increase the "Max Rendering Time"?  Try setting it to at least 60.
I'm wondering if it is possible that 10-seconds is not long enough to generate an image.

It looks like it managed 10 iterations, so you should have seen something, but it's worth a try.

still doesnt show anything. :'(

I thought it was a long shot, but easy to try, so I posted it.
That was my only idea at the moment.

Sherry,

Thanks for the Painter file.
a) Iray worked fine for me, with no changes.  I see you are on SP 2.4.1, while I am on 2.5.3.
b) The OpenGL window has some issues, especially on fuel tanks, exhaust pipes, and fenders.  Are they mirrored?  When I try to paint on the right-hand fuel tank, paint appears on the other one.
c) What modeling tool did you use?  (Please don't tell me you found the truck on the Google Sketchup Warehouse.)
d) I think there's a modeling and/or UV unwrapping issue.  But I'm a complete non-expert in those areas. But if I paint on the 2D window, then it can show up.  Initially the fuel tank had no base color showing up at all, as if it had never been painted, but when I zoomed way in, then some of the green paint started to appear.

Strange that I have issues with OpenGL, but Iray looks great.  The exact opposite of your situation.

I'll attach a copy of my SP window, and you can see where I played around with some red paint.  That is about as far as my limited skills can go.  Hopefully someone else can take it to the next step.

Good luck.
