Multilayered Material: Properties

Documentation of properties, with screenshots if applicable

Material properties

colorScale

Sets a color from within the mltemplate file. Hex codes corresponds to rows and columns in substance painter.

material

Depot path to the base material mltemplate from which the surface inherits its properties (lightbreaking, subsurface scatteringโ€ฆ).

Example values: base\surfaces\materials\paint\car_paint\car_paint_metallic_01.mltemplate base\surfaces\materials\metal\enameled_hq\enameled_hq_01_30.mltemplate

matTile

Scaling (tiling multiplier) of the material across the mesh. The higher the value, the smaller it is.

metalLevelsIn

Clamps metalness input levels. This value corresponds to a (generated?) greyscale texture across the entire mesh.

metalLevelsOut

Clamps metalness output levels. This value corresponds to a (generated?) greyscale texture across the entire mesh.

normalStrength

Applies or ignores the base mesh's normal map to this layer. This value can be greater than 1!

offsetU

For logos: X-offset on the texture. Used for e.g. targeting a certain label.

offsetV

For logos: Y-offset on the texture. Used for e.g. targeting a certain label.

opacity

Transparency of the layer, 0 means that it isn't displayed, 1 means that it's fully visible.

roughLevelsIn

TODO

roughLevelsOut

Determines the roughness of a material

Microblend properties

You can only use microblends if this layer's mask is not fully white.

mbTile

Like matTile, this determines the scaling of the microblend. The higher the value, the smaller it is.

microblend

Depot path to the base microblend texture (xbm), a seamless pattern which will be projected on the surface. Think of an extra normal map that tiles across a layer.

microblendContrast

A crossfade between the layer mask and the microblend mask (the black parts of the microblend texture). If you set this to >=1, then the layer will be blocked out where the microblend texture is black.

This requires the xbm's AlphaChannel (transparency) to be set up.

microblendNormalStrength

Like normalStrength for the microblend.

microblendOffsetU

X-offset for the microblend texture.

microblendOffsetV

Y-offset for the microblend texture
