Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Bringing in the Substance, part of Game Asset Creation: Stylized Wooden Crate.
- With everything in place and ready to go…in our Unreal level, what we want to do in this video…is walk through the steps required to bring…the substance package that we created into Unreal…and apply it to the crate asset in the scene.…As already noted, there is a substance plugin for Unreal…that will need to be installed before you can…make use of substances inside the engine.…And so, if you haven't already done so,…go back to the first video in this chapter…and walk through the steps as are outlined there.…Now, although I didn't actually take this step…in the previous exercise, one thing that I…usually like to do before I go ahead and…import any assets into Unreal is create…a series of folders and sub-folders…that will help me keep all of my assets and…materials nicely compartmentalized and organized.…
This makes both finding and then using…the assets that we have created…a quick and painless thing to do.…Because we have brought in just a single mesh asset, though,…and are going to be setting up…just a single substance material,…
