Author Topic: Cinema 4D R20 Invalid Substance Asset file  (Read 7618 times)

Hi
I'm still new to Substance and today I've tried to import a Substance Painter 2018.3.3 via pipeline > substance engine.

I keep getting the same error when trying to import newly created .spp files
"Invalid Substance Asset file"

Cinema Version is R20.059

Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong?

an .spp file is not a Substance Material file.  It is a document from Substance Painter.  They are useful for when you need to take a break from painting and come back to the file later to finish up.

To bring your painting and material work into C4D, you need to export your maps from Painter using the file--> export feature.  You shouldn't need to export the mesh.  Just the maps as I assume the mesh is already exported somewhere else since you were able to paint on it.
