Author Topic: How do I make materials of my gametextures?  (Read 984 times)

I have hundereds of materials/ textures from gametextures.com. How do I make use of these in SP? I want to convert all of them to materials but how do I do it? I have watched all the allegorithmic tutorials on Youtube but I still don´t understand. Should it be so hard or what am I missing?

The thing I have tried is to select a material in SP and replacing the color, height, rough and metal maps but where do I put my normals and ambient oclussion for example?

Maybe I should use Designer for this but there doesnt seem to be any step by step on how to make materials from regular textures. I watched this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwBstFgTWAo but there is just no way it has to be that complicated.

Hey mattias,

you can use the textures in Substance Painter by either drag and dropping them on or place the, into the shelf folder.
Just use a basic brush and drag and drop the textures onto the appropriate channels in the brush. You now can right-click in the brush panel and save the material.

Ok, but where do I put Normal, ambient occlusion and metal mask for exemple?

You need to add a normal channel in your document to be able to paint with/on the normal map.
Same thing for the ambient-occlusion. The "metal-mask" is already in your document named as the "Metallic" channel.

You can then load those texture in the material properties of your brush. On use them directly inside a fill layer.
Don't forget your log file. It can be exported from the Help menu of the software.
