Can I just say I watched the live stream the other night (GMT) and I was blown away with what this software will be able to do. Look forward to it's release when that happens. Looks like you guys still have a lot of work to do.

If it happens again I will do as you ask as I just looked at the log and there is no sign of the failed saves

I am truly sorry that you had to use one of your credits. I know it was there last week when I viewed the mat on the webpage and DLed it as I thought the Yellow on Brown looked better. I am at a loss to what happened and now I doubt myself. I just looked through the other rock mats and it wasn't any of those.

Can you get a credit on that substance because I never wanted anyone to have to dl it for me.

Well I took this mat into SD and for the life of me couldn't find the Shuffle function so my original q was valid. :) I did manage to mess about with the colours and save a new SP mat out so there is that.

I am having the same issue as the OP with the same error report in the log.

PS I went File > Clean and then I was able to save out with a new file name.

This series https://academy.allegorithmic.com/courses/getting-started-with-substance-painter-2018/youtube-IGGQl9kVB1M of tutorials show how to do that but I can't remember which part it is in.

Yeah I will take your advice on the first point, thx.

As for the second if you read my opening q properly you would have seen I was referring to what I see on S Source and there was no need for anyone to DL that material. I was simply asking why there is a Shuffle button when viewing that mat in 3D preview on the web page itself, hence no screenshots, and why there is shuffle button and no colour parameters in the mat when viewed in SP.

So the succinct answer would have been that it was for SD and not SP.

I do appreciate you trying to help I am just a little peeved that no staff is on hand to answer, (and I see a lot of posts don't even get a response) and that you came out all guns blazing in defence mode. If I thought it warranted screenshots I would have provided them. As I said I know how to help people, been doing it for years on other forums so I know what should be provided to get help, sorry for any misunderstandings.

So let's forget this and move on, Again I do appreciate you responding though.

so you don't have access to Substance Source then and are you Staff or just a user as my comments were aimed at staff but thx anyway.

PS that link is for SD and I asked in SP section. So I can only infer that the Shuffle button shown on the S Source website in 3D preview is only for SD.

So I tried using the Invert Filter which worked but then noticed all the maps were inverted. I solved it by adding a duplicate without the invert filter and just used it for Norm and Rough, whilst the original for Colour only.

But I must say I am a little peeved with the lack of response for my qs lately. That is what these forums are for aren't they or should I bombard CS with direct emails?

I like Daz3D's approach to forums with having people who know their product helping out. They are called Community Volunteers and I used to be one many years ago, before I got too busy.

Yes a lot of SP can be learnt from online Tutorials but after watching many I find I am still lacking understanding of certain aspects hence me asking here, for what is worth. But I am starting to get the hang of SP and having years of Photoshop experience I find the layers system to be a perfect fit. I really can't moan about the software though.

Just wish we had a Colour Swatch saver and be able to copy and paste Filters from one layer to another. :)

Ok let's try this question:

On the 3D preview of Italian Fieldstone there is a button called Shuffle but when I load the material in SP there is no Colour Parameters so I have to ask why the Shuffle button?

11
1ST Q: What units does SP work in? I export from Daz Studio in CM, does it matter if I am not using SSS etc? But it would be nice to know for the future. :) Yes I have searched here and on Google for the answer. Asking on Forums is always my last resort.

2ND Q: For my first project I am using Woodcreek Mossy from Substance Source. I gather with it being procedural I don't have to worry about fidelity when scaling in any direction. I gather it is all about the final output size. Are my assumptions correct in this case.

well said Vincent

Vincent I so love the idea of having Photoshop brushes inside SP, see another positive thought/idea. Keep em coming.

Once again nothing at all has been decided. We noticed (and already knew) that perpetual license would be on top of the list of the concerns (even if ironically it's by far the least purchased option, but the fact that "it's possible" is key)

So as we don't do bullshit messages: nothing is decided yet, multiples options are being discussed, for you guys, for current Adobe customers, so there are good chances to see different options to fit the different needs. So wait and see on this one.

For someone that doesn't invest emotion in to these things and I am new here (5 day old subscription) I was looking forward to getting a perpetual license as I feel SPand SD has everything I need at this point in time. Maybe a bit naive given I am just learning. But if Adobe was to scrap them then please make sure they drop the price to make it affordable in the long run like they did with Photoshop. I am one of the few that don't mind the Pricing and Subscription model of Photoshop only. :) It helped me no end to start to earn and now with SP and SD I can grow that business.

Seeing the immense success that CC was and the amount of people subscribed, I'd say you're one of many not few. Photoshop is dirt cheap and Adobe should be given credit at least for that. It's their flagship product and they didn't have to create such an affordable sub for it.

Other than that I'm not a fan of CC at all, and wish there was a perpetual or even a rent-to-own option, but I do feel this is one aspect that needs to be recognized. Photoshop is more accessible today than ever.

Well said. Yeah I like the rent to own option
