Author Topic: All outputs in a single Map  (Read 1388 times)

Hello there!
I would like to know how to make a map from the individual maps (BaseColor, Normal, Metallic, Roughness, Height) of my material. In other words something like this:

I tried to search on the forum but I did not find anything about it.
Has Substance Designer this option or I have to make it manually?

You could make a Diffuse Output (or probably any output that supports RGBA) and then blend each of your maps one at a time using a mask to hide/show different parts. 

Sorry for going a bit off-topic... but is there some "magic button" to create images like the one at the start of this thread?

I see images like that in various posts in the "show your work" area and some of the "contest" threads.  I think they're really great, but the idea of manually creating a composite image like that seems like a bit of a bother.  Not technically difficult, but annoying.

You can just create it as a separate graph and have multiple inputs (the maps you want to combine)

I'd love to see an entire post on how to do those great showoff shots of a material.  I'm so bad at staging renders.

Thanks.
I was wondering if maybe there was a pre-built utility people used.  It was worth a try.
Starting a thread about "how to showcase your work" sounds like a good idea.

It's not hard to do, below is a simple one done with just blend nodes. There's a more elaborate setup here:
