Author Topic: Project settings in Substance Painter for a 3dsMax project  (Read 2305 times)

Hi all,

I'm looking for "correct" project settings in order to set up a SP project which is going to be rendered in 3ds Max with VRay. I've seen many threads and other documents/tutorials focused on how to export from Painter to 3dsMax VRay and render correctly.

What I'm looking for is the workflow to export from Max and import in Painter.

I export from 3dsMax (2016) to an fbx file. In the exporter I checked:
- Smoothing Groups
- Tangents & Binormals (as this will be rendered in 3dsMax)
- Triangulate is not checked (as I want the final mesh remain in quads)
- Preserve Edge Orientation is Checked

I create a new project in Painter using the "Unreal Engine 4 (Allegorithmic)" template and import the fbx file. I prefer to use the metallic workflow as I have materials that I'm using in engines and I will export for VRay.

I don't know what to do with the checkbox "Compute tangent space per fragment". Do I have to check it?
