Cooking Options

Substance Player allows you to load .sbs file created with Substance Designer. In this case, .sbs files need to be cooked into .sbsar files.

The Cooking Options menu lets you set the options to use for the cooking:

  • Dynamic Output Size: allows to change the resolution as a parameter
  • Dynamic Pixel Size: allows to change the pixel size as a parameter
  • Dynamic Random Seed: allows to randomize the substance

Locate Substance Designer

This allows you to set a path for Substance Designer, allowing the 2 software to communicate together. This is very useful when you want to test in Substance Player the texture you are creating in Substance Designer.

Switch Engine

This menu lets you chose which Substance Engine to use.

GPU engines (DirectX9, DirectX10, OpenGL) are faster than CPU engine (SSE2) and allow you to work up to 4096 in you change the Size Limit.

In most of substance compatible product the SSE2 engine is used (Unity, 3ds Max, MODO, Maya, UE3/UDK)
