Author Topic: Collection materials location (Alchemist)  (Read 1834 times)

Hi, I would like to know where the collection materials are being stored on disk (on windows). It seems that I can't find them anywhere!

Thank you!

I'm not in front of my work computer, but i think there's a path for every OS in the documentation of Alchemist

I checked this place : C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Allergorithmic\ and the installation folder and there is nothing in here...

They are stored as json files in the following folder on windows. For those on Macs,, I presume it would be a relative area.

C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Roaming\Allegorithmic\Substance Alchemist\materials

The "build in" ones are in a folder off the main installation, again as json files.

Thank you, I got it, I was looking in a different username!

How can I change this location? My C drive is a very small SSD, and Alchemist is already taking up 10GB of storage with but a few materials.

I think, for the moment, you can't.
