With this release, SoMuchDiffuse is now a lot bigger! You can now use the same presets and parameters you’ve been using but generate Diffuse, Specular and Gloss textures in SoMuchDiffuse’s bigger brother SoMuchSpecular! With this addition comes a name change to the pages and the package.

SoMuchMaterials is a collection of material generators for Substance Painter that can take high poly sculpted data and bake material information down into either a single diffuse texture or spec/gloss/diffuse materials.

THIS IS NOT A NEW PRODUCT! It’s just a name change! If you own SoMuchDiffuse, you own SoMuchMaterials!

Input Selection

The input selection allows you to pick which part of the material baker you want to use. Set this if you want an additional specular overlay or want to debug your texture.

Full Material: Combines the Diffuse, specular and post process features together.

Diffuse Only: Shows only the diffuse features.

Specular Only: Shows only specular features.


Diffuse

Diffuse Options

Diffuse Color: Sets the base color for diffuse baker.

Shadow Color: Sets the color Multiplied over the diffuse color to create the diffuse gradient.

Top Down

Enable Diffuse Gradient: Turns on and off the top down gradient features.

Invert Mask: Inverts the top down mask. Us this to switch Left to Right or Top to Bottom.

Gradient Type: Sets the type of gradient used in the position gradient. Options include a position Top / Bottom and a light gradient.

Diffuse Gradient Color: Sets the color of the position gradient

Diffuse Gradient Spread: Sets the contrast on the position mask.

Enable Cavity: turns on and off the cavity features.

Cavity Color: Sets the color used the cavity mask.

Cavity Clipping: Sets the reference value for cavity mask.

Cavity spread: Sets the contrast of the cavity mask

Worldspace Intensity: Sets the opacity of a mask clearing the highlight side of a cavity detection.

Cavity

Ambient Occlusion

Use Ambient Occlusion: Turns on and off the ambient occlusion features.

Occlusion Color: Sets the color multiplied in by the ambient occlusion features.

Occlusion Spread: Sets the contrast of the ambient occlusion.

Select Gradient

Enable Gradient: Turns on or off the Selected Gradient feature

Invert Mask: Inverts the mask used for the Selected Gradient color

Gradient Type: Worldspace Lit, Position L/R, Position T/B, Position F/B Worldspace L/R, Worldspace F/B, Worldspace T/B

Gradient Spread: Contrast for the Selected Gradient Mask


Thickness

Enable Thickness: Turns on and off the thickness features.

Thickness Color: Sets the color blended in by the thickness feature.

Thickness Spread: Sets the contrast of the thickness mask.


Specular

Enable Specular: Turns on and off ALL settings in the specular features

Enable WSN Mask: Turns on and off the World Space underside mask. This mask is used to restrict the specular highlight from lighting the underside of a model.

Number of Lights: Sets the number of lights used in the light rig. 18 are valid settings, decimals will be rounded up. The lights are distributed evenly around the entire model.

Specular Rig Height: Sets the vertical angle of all lights in the light rig.

Specular Light Rotation: Sets the horizontal rotation of all lights in the light rig.

Specular Color: Sets the color of the base specular highlight.

Specular Intensity: Sets opacity of all specular features.

Specular Exponent: Sets the gloss value of the base specular highlight.

Base Specular

Specular Effects

Blur Specular: Blurs the base specular highlight to eliminate some artifacting that may occur.

Specular Cavity

Cavity Intensity: Opacity of specular cavity feature.

Cavity Spread: Contrast of the specular cavity feature.

Specular Edges

Enable Specular Edge: Turns on and off the specular edge feature.

Edge Color: Sets the color of the specular edge highlight feature.

Edge Exponent: Sets the gloss value of the specular edge feature.

Underlight

Enable Specular Underlight: Turns on and off the specular underlight features.

Underlight Gradient Top: Sets the top color in the underlight gradient.

Underlight Gradient Bottom: Setsthe bottom color in the underlight gradient.

Underlight Intensity: Set s the opacity of the underlight feature.

Underlight Gloss: Sets the contrast of the mask exposing the underlight gradient.

Underlight Spread: Sets the center point of the underlight gradient.


Post Process Effects

Cel Shading

Use Cel Shader: Turns on and off the cel shader features.

Cel Highlight Color: Sets the color multiplied into the highlight side of the cel shading effect.

Cel Shadow Color: Sets the color multiplied into the highlight side of the cel shading effect.

Cel Bias: Sets the center point of the cel shading effect.

Cel Softness: Sets the softness of the shadow edge the cel shader creates.

Highlight HSL

Enable HSL Post: Turns on and off the hue, saturation and lightness post process features.

Hue: Shifts the hue of the isolated range.

Saturation: Shifts the saturation of the isolated range.

Lightness: Shifts the lightness of the isolated range.

Highlight Clip: Isolates the range above this value for hue, saturation and lightness.

Highlight Contrast: Sets the contrast of the isolated range.





Override

Override Use Baked Lighting: When this is on, the texture will be baked into a single diffuse texture. When off, it currently splits into Diffuse/Specular/Gloss

Override Gloss: The slider will change the value range used for your gloss. Only edit this if your gloss values are coming into your engine of choice too bright or dark.  You should not have to touch this. Also note: this material needs to be the same on each material so you get consistent gloss.
