Author Topic: Anchor created but can't find it, anchor points tab greyed  (Read 174 times)

Hi,
Thank you very much for the tutorial on Substance Painter 2018. I have followed till 09 about using anchor points:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w44yuMFtFyM&list=PLB0wXHrWAmCwnqWfKdGEmbtSKN2EzvLrY&index=10

but when I create the anchor point and want to reference it in MG dirt (following the steps in the tutorial) I can't find the anchor point because the anchor tab is greyed, can't be selected.
Micro height (in mg dirt) is already on.

Please help

Okay, I looked into the project and that's the expected behavior : anchor points are not authorized in-between instanced layers. Since anchor point only work inside a specific layer stack and not across Texture Sets, they can't be used if for example the source is outside an instanced folder. If you move the source inside the instanced folder, you will be able find it in the menu.
