Author Topic: Substance Maya Vray Texture Issue  (Read 209 times)

Hey, guys. I'm having a weird issue with substance in Maya I'm trying to wrap my head around. I'm currently on Maya 2018 without any service packs installed and my substance plugin version is 1.4.1-7b007d3. I'm using substances and the substance plugin with vray materials.

When I open my maya scene, some substances appear broken. Errors in the tiling, low res, distorted. You can see that in the broken image attatched. If I open up the hypershade and simply select the substance node, not even selecting reload or anything, the images update and display correctly. If I close maya and reopen, they display distorted again, until I open the substance node. I wasn't sure if this was just a viewport bug and it would render correctly, but when rendering, the distortion/low res textures persist.

Some things I've tried, I made sure workflow is set to custom and I changed the output cache from none to use custom folder. When I open that folder I can see the images being generated. It looks like when I select the substance node and the textures display correctly, I can see the textures displaying correctly in the folder I specified. If I close maya, the textures there are still looking correct, but when I open the scene again, they're replaced with the low res/distorted textures until I select the substance node again.

Hope that was thorough enough. I appreciate the help in advance. Let me know if you need anymore info.

Here's a link to some screenshots detailing my issue. I tried attaching them to this post but I was getting errors.

It looks to me like it's rendering with the default outputsize and not with what was saved. That may be a limitation of how the UI panels were built, how the plugin was designed to work with the Maya attribute system is a big issue that we know about.

This should be fixed in the 2.0.0 release, which will be soon. We should be in beta for that whenever I finish up the final installer toolchain for it.

Hey, Galen. Thanks for the heads up! I'll keep my eye out for when 2.0.0 drops and hopefully that will address the issue.
