Author Topic: Download MODO Substance Plugin Updates  (Read 15492 times)

Gary, Thank you! I wasn't aware of that difference. Now my substances are talking in Octane render :D

Thank you.

I can't thank you enough for this work.  The intersection of modo, substance, and octane is a thing of beauty.

Hello,

I have encountered some issues with this plugin. When working on my scene in modo these substances seemed to have a mind of their own.

The output channels would loose their UV map assignment. All of a sudden they would be assigned to another object's UVs.

Horizontal wrap and vertical wrap would default back to 1 (but for example I set them to 24 repeats...)

The order of the channels in the shader tree would change as well. They move up and 'detach' from the substance item.


These changes happened in the background while working on the scene...


Is there a new update coming?

Regards


I've tried the latest plugin (Substance_Modo-10.0-2.4.0.286-msvc11-x64) from the Allegorithmic site on modo 10.2v4 as well as modo 10.2v1. I see "Substance" in the Textures menu, but neither of these have the "Load Substance" option, making Substance to modo pipeline useless. Am I missing something, or is this a bug that is being worked on?

Answered my own question:

The Youtube video below of Wes' is older and I guess the "Load Substance" is gone and has been replaced by the "load sbsar" once I have manually created a subtance.

Had to read the manual here: https://support.allegorithmic.com/documentation/display/integrations/MODO

VS. watching the video here (which is what first turned me onto Substance): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmM1xGWtDNM

Hi Wes,

Several members have voiced their interest in a Linux version of the Modo Substance plugin (which makes sense since both Modo and Designer exist and are popular on Linux) and I'd like to add my voice too by asking whether there's any news on this front.

You mentioned about a year ago that it's on the roadmap - could we get clarification and, possibly, some sort of ETA?

Cheers,

Roy

Hi Roy,

I'm very sorry for this miscommunication on my part. Unfortunately we still don't have an ETA we can share at this time. We have talked about the linux version internally and it's something we wanted to deliver much sooner, but we just haven't been able to allocate the resource to it thus far.

I'm sorry I know that it's not good news and not a definitive answer on when we can deliver the linux version. It's definitely on our roadmap for the modo plugin. We will do our best to make this happen as soon as possible.

Cheers,
Wes
