Hello there ! Was really busy last month, but as i told in last meetup here we have a first glampse of the megascans importer. First step is to look forward if the importer APP behaves the same to everybody before publish any git and look forward to a generic json for gamma materials.
what i post here is the first alpha prerelease of the importer app, as i found weird issues when i run it on another computers apart from the dev one , needs to be checked .
So i need some help testing if it works allright in other users computers.
Take your hands on it to test, as i said is a very prearly test.
You should do this steps to make bridge works allright with the importer
-Open your Quixel Bridge app.
-In export settings select Custom Socket export and choose your port.
-In export settings make sure to set your textures (Displacement) in jpg format. By default is the only texture you need to change format.
-once done export and check if the app retrieves the same surface.
-By the moment the app only support Megascans Surface type, so dont try to export meshes or foliage.
Load time of the app is not as fast as i desired, so when opening be patient please
to be fixed: Many things, app is still in development not ready for release, just anticipating user problems
As i mention in this post : What about DB folder in gamma?
if you see the app folder size increase, just delete the /lib/db folder, dont know if it works in other computers after that.
Also recomend to export i up to dxt5 as bc6 bc7 formats could compromise the exporter and run in a infinite loop.
please send all the reports to make this tool work 4 all i have good vibrations about it.
PD> the MGAsset node will be avaliable soon to test as nuget.
