Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video The substance toolset, part of 3ds Max: Substance to V-Ray.
- [Instructor] The purpose of this particular video…is to give us a basic introduction…to the various applications that we will be using…throughout the duration of this course…to outport either materials…or material components that we can then use…in an offline renderer of our choice,…in this specific instance, V-Ray for 3ds Max.…First of all, we will be using…the Bitmap2Material 3 application which,…as the name kind of implies, is an application,…or substance archive actually, that has been designed…to take a simple import bitmap, typically a photograph,…and turn that into a fully fledged set…of PBR based material channel outputs.…
In other words, it creates bitmaps…that can be used to drive the various components…of a material in, as we say, our renderer of choice.…Some of the most common output types…it uses are base or diffuse color,…roughness, metal, glossiness, height,…normal, and ambient inclusion…as we say to name just a few.…Now because this is just a substance archive,…one that in the Bitmap2Material standalone application…
