Substance started to not work correctly when rendering on the render farm via backburner (same using DR). I've restarted both the render server and my local machine. I created a fresh, simple scene to recreate the problem. It's not throwing any errors, it just looks really wrong.

Does anyone have any ideas?

3ds max 2019 21.0.0.845
Substance 2.1.1
Corona 4

1. Plugin installed on all nodes? 2. Anything in the Max.log of a slave/BB node?


Good Luck



Never underestimate the power of a well placed level one spell.

Yes, the plugin is on the node (there's just one). It's been working for months, I don't know what changed to break it.

Here is the log (from the node):
