Hi everyone! I'm a newbie at substance designer scripting, and the lack of examples drives me crazy :(
For example, I have a graph which converts resources from PBR to our custom Blinn Phong (convert multiple inputs to one diffuse), and I want to run this graph on hundreds of resources. I've created some script that will collect all the data, substitute it, and save results in corresponding folders, but I have a huge problem figuring out how to substitute the graph's values. I tried setting values inside my graph (by setting values of SDProperties from SDPropertyCategory.Output of each Input) (InsideToPhong.png/py). I tried setting values outside of my graph (by setting values of SDProperties from SDPropertyCategory.Input of ToPhong node) (OutsideOfToPhong.png/py), but I always get the same error:

How to achieve the desired behavior? I do believe that there also has to be a much more elegant way of handling this. Any help would be appreciated!
