Hi :-) I was wondering if it's possible to extract just a sculpt layer as a displacement map for use in the texturing app.
Tried Zbrushs' function to bake displacement to a lower subdivision level. In this case the deformation is partly visible in the lower levels as well, making the displacement map inaccurate.
I read about this old plugin by user Jake0 on cgfeedback
which seems to do what I was looking for, however it seems to be working for the 32-bit version only.
Another approach would be to bake the difference of the exported mesh with layer applied to the mesh without layer applied. However with the high density of the mesh, export and baking times are quite slow.
Of course these surface details could be created soley in the texturing app, however using Substance Painter, I feel the stencil options available are bit limited.
Does anyone extract those sculpt layers and can share their experiences, or point in a direction/ to a resource.
Or generally, how do you go about surface details if you want separate control over them during the texturing process?
Have a great day!
