Hello,

I know this post has nothing to do with Corona but I feel more comfortable with this forum than anything else, so here it is...
Recently I have started using the Substance2 plugin. Although it looks like a good workflow it is full of bugs. It is super heavy, it crushes 3ds max all the time and it fails to work through render farms' software like Render Manager from Pulze (there is an ongoing discussion on their forum for that matter).

I have tried to use the Substance Player to export textures from the .sbsar files in order to create classic Corona materials, but Substance Player doesn't work either anymore, at least for me.
Whenever I launch it, it crushes. Adobe's support suggest me to clear my cache and cookies and then uninstal and install again.... which it didn't work... strange it was a good idea 😂

Does anyone use Substance2 plugin or Substance Player software and faces the same issues?
I would like to see if I am alone in this 😒

Cheers,
Christos

I have similar experience with substance 2 plugin in 3ds Max, it's clunky and extremely prone to crash, however substance player works just fine for me. Maybe you're using outdated version? Try to download newest version from Adobe and see if that helps with crashes.

By the way, if you have some scenes setup where substance 2 plugin is reliably crashing, it would be helpful if you could share them with Corona support team - AFAIK devs are working on substance issues now and are looking for reproducible scenes: https://forum.corona-renderer.com/index.php?topic=36314.msg208553#msg208553
I'm not Corona Team member. Everything i say, is my personal opinion only.

At least I am not the only one suffering from this 😁
I can't make Player work though, very strange. I guess I will figure it out somehow.
If I found some free time I will sent a file or two.
