Mesh Based Generators

Mesh based generators are nodes intended to process Baked maps such as a Normal map, Curvature, Ambient Occlusion, etc.

The category gets its name from the fact that baked maps are the only way for Designer to use data based on 3D meshes. Quite some of the functionality in this category is similar to Smart Materials and Masks from Substance 3D Painter.

There are three main categories:

  • Mask Generators
    Black-and-white mask generators based on one or more baked maps.
  • Weathering
    Full-material weathering effects based on baked maps.
  • Utilities
    Extra utilities and tools to work with bakes.
