Author Topic: File error on opening Substance scenes  (Read 93 times)

When I create scenes using recently purchased Substance textures, upon re-loading them into 3ds Max 2020 I sometimes  get 3 messages: File Open Error – Error loading Parablock2; File Open Error – Invalid File, only partially loaded; File Open Failed – file path. The only way to resolve these issues is to re-load the Substance textures and re-convert them into V-Ray. I’m storing my Substance texture files on my D: drive rather than the default C: drive, 3ds Max Substance/Maps folder due to memory availability issues. My system consists of AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX with a 32 core processor; 64Gb RAM and an NVidia Quadro P5000 card.


I am having the same issue. I crashed when trying to export and now can not open the file. I took an old save and started setting up materials again, it happened again and all my saves are not working now.

I think this should be fixed in the next version of the plugin.
