As a test, i set 3 of my masks that define parts of the body to user channels 'skin, pants, shirt' that's in an R+G+B png texture.

When i look at these textures in UNITY, every channel is white. If i set the user color from white to black and export, i get masks except their inverted. I hope someone understands this process.

Basically, my exported user channels need a black background with the white being the mask. i'm not getting that, just getting pure white or i can get basically an inverted mask. really appreciate any info on this.

I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong here. If i go to file, open, i can open these grunge files easily enough and use them in my graph, i'm dying to have these just show up in my library though. i'm assuming this is possible? can someone explain what i'm doing wrong? this would be a HUGE time saver for me. much appreciate any help.

I work in modo. I've exported my fbx (2018) high res meshes and i've literally spent a total of ...10-12 hours *multiple different assets baked with this issue* trying to figure out wth painter is ignoring my smoothing groups.

I've looked at the my high res files in maya, looks identical to modo, looks identical in marmoset. I believe i've seen many other people have this issue. i use fbx for the ease and the material id.

i'm so stumped i'm finally writing about this. i'm LOSING MY MIND. wth is going on?

this is easily one of the most invaluable tools from texturing in photoshop days. PLEASE make this filter work with masks/anchor points. what's the point of all my baked ID details if i cant use them for creating cool glowy texture work. PLEASE allegorithmic, PLEASE update this.

I'm dying to get some nice emissive 'precise' bevels colors, i've tried the glow filter with fill layers with masks, with out masks, trying black and white images, for the life of me i cant get this glow filter to do anything? Is this broken or something? This type of effect is SO USEFUL for wear grunge from masks, emissive colors. come on, what am i doing wrong here?

Has anyone gotten this to work? i'd love to use this, i just cant for some reason?

I was doing some testing using a cage and my bakes get far worse with a cage file for some reason?

Can someone explain what ...might be going on? I've tried a few things, nothing is making a difference. The only time i get my details is wo the cage file? The only setting i change for the bake with the cage is turning on Use Cage.

Why would it be doing this? the results are so much clearer and detailed wo the cage?

At work we're working on an old project that is a specular workflow. we're using the non pbr spec gloss material (only material in SP we could get spec results with) one of our artist today had to paint opacity on their texture and it's only doing CUTOUT opacity?

...we're totally boned atm. Can someone enlighten me to how we get clean opacity using a spec workflow in SP? We're really screwed atm and these forums are my only hope. Really, really would appreciate any info on this...I'm dying to get help on this actually.

cheers.

...Everything was fine, i checked in the character into perforce, now when i open the scene it gives me this...

My character isn't symmetrical everywhere, his face and arms are though. I turn on symmetry and my plane is WAY off to the side. i need to paint symmetrically on his face and arms but i cant! please for the love of god, let us manually enter values for the symmetry plane. i know people have been asking for similar features for the symmetry plane for a long time now. come on allegorithmic, this is a show stopper. not every character is exactly symmetrical.

an example would be, i turn on symmetry in x, my x  says X= - .25 so i could enter for X=0 now my plane is straight down the middle. this is SUPER, SUPER handy to have. please give us this feature!

I know a lot of people who texture with gradients, several friends at blizzard for example who use them. this is SO essential for subtle color details. its amazing for texturing once you've set up your black and white images ao+lighting+curves and such, drop a gradient on top and you can add so much variation. the gradient in designer is KILLER. please. please. please let us have this in painter!

i tried to export this out of designer, i couldn't get it to work. i'm begging you guys to add this to painter please! its so powerful for texturing.

11
I'm dying to have the gradient map in designer added to painter. i was hoping its possible to export this somehow? any ideas?

12
I have never found a 'edit hotkeys' menu. i use Histogram scan 300 times a day. sick of typing in node names always or searching in my fav bar. handy yes, but there are way faster ways to work.

i think designer really could use Pie menus. I use modo and they're crazy quick for accessing commands.

custom shelves would be nice too.
Why not let us edit the spacebar popup for example. or let us create our own by dragging and dropping nodes we use all the time so we can have them pop up under out mouse. also, modo does this.

i dont use all those nodes that often on the spacebar click. i think designer could really benifit from a few workflow enhancements.

cheers

I'm creating a lot of tiling metal materials that i'll be using through out my scene using id masks in unreal. i am assuming i can create a network and somehow save that network as a material? i can do something similar in sub painter, right click and save as smart material.

please tell me there is an equivalent in designer?

really appreciate any info.

cheers

If i move a node across the Graph the camera will move with it. Super handy. it doesn't work the same when i drag out a node though. this makes it a REAL pain trying to connect something a mile away. in unreal you can drag out your connector and the camera will move as you drag. we MUST have this in designer, its a huge time saver and we can actually see what we're doing.

15
In unreal, i can grab frames from any side and re-size it. in substance i can only re size from the bottom right corner. i'm CONSTANTLY having to grab my networks and move everything to fit them into my frame again as things area always changing.

this seems like a no brainer to me. i really hope we get this soon.
