Ideas for Linking Adobe Substance 3D Assets with Sampler
I have thousands of Substance materials that are available in Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop under "Stock & Marketplace" > "3D." I would like to have these materials automatically import (all at once) into Substance 3D Sampler. It would be great to have a feature in Sampler/Creative Cloud that makes this possible with a click or two.
In the current absence of a good way to connect to my entire library of materials, I'm trying to link to my local Substance Source folder which contains numerous subfolders, each with lots of materials. In the past, with Alchemist, I've been able to link to the top level Substance Source folder and Alchemist would import my entire library complete with subfolders. I can no longer find a way to do this. Am I missing something, or did the transition from Alchemist to Sampler do away with this essential feature? I'm having to import materials from one folder at a time and I can't find a way to create my own subfolders within Sampler to organize the imported materials. The materials are automatically sorting into categories not designated by me.
As I load materials folder by folder into Sampler, I'm noticing that loading time for materials in Sampler is incredibly slow.
Thank you for investigating these essential needs.
Also noticing that when I download a material to my local drive and place it in a subfolder, the file does not automatically show up in Sampler the way it used to when I used Alchemist.
