My name is Julien Blervaque, I am Tools and Pipeline Technical Director at Ubisoft Animation Studio as well as the Head of the User Experience department. Among other tasks I design tools and user interfaces for our inhouse software. On my spare time I also develop scripts and graphics resources for real time environments, as I used to do as a Graphics Technical Director on video game productions. You will find some of them on this website. I hope they can help you in some ways.
Have you ever wished to display the value of a graph parameter or a texel color to provide information to the material user? Have you ever needed to get the result of some computation hidden deep into a graph to debug a material?
This node converts a float value to a text image and works in a pretty similar to the Text node of Substance Designer.

When a new release of Substance Designer comes out and modifies the structure of the .sbs file format you get a popup message everytime you open a Substance file in Substance Designer that has not yet been saved with this version. This becomes pretty annoying when working with big libraries.

Fortunately some naming conventions exist in Substance Designer. Here they are.
This script is a "render to texture" like graphic interface that uses the Substance Batch Tools to bake the maps defining the topology of a mesh in just a few clicks.
Updated! Version 1.x uses Batch Tools 6 and can output maps with different values for width and height!

Every software feature will be, at a point, in the hand of users.
In this presentation I introduce a set of guidelines for developers and TDs to help them provide well-balance features to users, in other words features that will do not only what they have to do but will also be robust, intuitive and consistent with the application.
This article is about what you necessarily need to have in mind when you want to build production-proof features. The how to is a whole topic by itself and it is not covered here.
