Sorry, guys (got it working now)


I've installed the latest Substance plugin to UE., but when I export my mesh from content browser its not
showing in Painter 2019.2.2 Also the UE icon is not present in SP.

I tried this (old post) but also nothing happening. Thanks you.

any ideas?

Have you tried the workaround? (This is if you don't have the source fbx)

1. Right click on the asset in the content browser and go to Asset Actions - Export.
2. Make sure Collision is turned off under the Static Mesh section on the Export dialogue. (can leave LOD on or off)
3. Export the fbx somewhere.
4. Right click on the asset in the content browser again and click Reimport.
5. Choose the mesh that you just exported.
6. Send to Painter should now work.

This process will be automated in the future, but this is the current workaround at the moment.
