Hiya.

:(

I left Adobe 15 years ago and never looked back. I was just going to re-up my license just a few minutes ago. Then got this email informing me. Uh...huh. Serendipity I guess? No re-upping for me until I see how this plays out.

I, like others, think this will ultimately be a bad move on Allegorithmics part. Hope I'm wrong, but history doesn't point to a happy outcome.

There's always my sub to Mari I guess. *sigh* Substance is just so easy to use though! Sad to see Adobe at the helm now.

Oh well. So long! And thanks for all the fish!

Hiya!

I'd just like to toss in my support for ProRender. It's OpenCL based, so AMD and nVidia cards can use it. Seems like a perfect choice for Substance, tbh. :)

Hiya!

Tried all that. No effect.

Uninstalled everything to do with MODO and Allegorithmic programs. After reinstalling MODO first, and running it once, then Substance Painter 2 (and run it), Substance Designer 6 (and run it), B2M3 (and run it), then I installed the latest MODO Plugin driver...and...this is where it gets interesting...

During the install run (as Admin, for everything btw)...it starts, gets about 1/4 of the way done (blue progress bar), then it *looks* like it just decides that it's done and tells me everything installed fine. Looking in MODO, under System --> Kit Toggle Enable....there is no Substance to be found.

(Oh, and yeah, I did remove the .cfg and replace it with the above one; I'm also installing everything on my E:\ drive; I have an Allegorithmic folder and a Luxology folder where the programs are being installed to; this is a physical drive on this box, not a network one).

NOTE: One thing I did find out, this crappy computer has a pos video card which I *think* doesn't measure up; it's a 2GB R7 340...shouldn't stop installation though, just running...correct? I mean, It gives me the "This GPU might not be good enough..." when I launch Painter, but it still works good enough for learning at least. My new rig will be here in about three weeks or so...so I'm stuck with this pos temp for a while. :(

Thanks for any/all help. I know how frustrating tech work can be (been there, done that...a long time ago). Freaking Windows OS...I swear trying to troubleshoot is like trying to paint Starry Night, on the side of a horse, with your tongue, in the dark, upside down, while drunk.

Hiya Wes.

Yes, I uninstalled all my Substance Live stuff, DL'ed the latest from my Downloads/Licenses page, reinstalled. They work fine. I can open Painter 2, Designer 6, Bit2Mat, and all run as expected. I have the latest MODO 11 build as well. Same general thing, uninstalled my old MODO Indie v10, grabbed the latest MODO (full) 11, installed. It runs fine, as expected.

I DL'ed the MODO/SubstancePainter Plugin from here. It installs fine (making sure to run it As Admin) with no errors. It shows up in MODO 11 exactly where it should be. However...the moment I try and Create Substance, MODO disappears in a puff of digital smoke. No error message, no computer slow down, going into Task Manager I can see that there is no MODO Processes running...so it's not "crashing" so much as "instantly exiting". Restarting MODO gives me the "Reload Auto-Save" dialogue box (you know, "It appears that the application did not cleanly exit from..."), with the option to reload Yes/No. If I choose Yes...it doesn't load anything, probably because it didn't have time to save anything.

I also tried to Disable the Substance "Kit" (plugin) in MODO via the "System --> Kit Toggle Enable". Then close MODO. Reopen it. Re-enable the Substance plugin. Close. Reopen MODO. Same thing, no change.

I'm honestly at a loss as to what's going on. I think I'm going to have to resort to a total wipe of MODO and Substance prog's via uninstall, registry editing, deleting all folders, etc. Restart computer, and reinstall all of them again. But that's for later today or tomorrow... no time right now.

If you come up with anything, let me know! :)

Hiya.

I just bought 1 mo (to start) MODO 11. Have Substance Live. DL'ed and installed the Substance plugin. As soon as I try Texture --> Create Substance (as per the Substance documentation instructions ( https://support.allegorithmic.com/documentation/display/integrations/MODO ), instant crash to desktop with no warning. This happens via Mouse/Dropdown, or Ctrl-Alt-S shortcut. My Substance Live stuff is all working just fine, as in MODO 11.

Am I just an anomaly here, or are others having the same problem?
