AO_Curvature filter



You can get easy AO and Curvature channel from your layer height map in Substance Painter.
You have to add AO and User 0 channel.
Would you check the movie how to use this filter.

Hello Hiromi. Thanks for your filter. I think this would save me sometimes and give me more control on these 2 maps.
Can you make a tut about how to use this filter? I follow the steps on your video but nothing happened may be I miss a step somewhere

1. You create both AO and User0 channels.
2.Drag and drop the ao_curvature filter to the top of the layers.
3.The blend mode of the height channel in the layer with ao_curvature filter change to passthrough.
4.Paint the bolts or other new parts in the lower layers .
5.chek the AO and User0 channel.

If you want to affect your weathering filters , you must export the new AO and User0(curvature) and import them.

Would you check them?

hey, I've just tried this but it doesn't work. There was no SBSAR file attached, so I've published it myself and imported into Painter. However after doing it step by step according to your video I just can't put filter in its slot. Painter doesn't recognize it as a filter. Could you check how does it work in Painter 2.1 or reupload the file with SBSAR version?

I followed the video exactly, but it looks like the AO component may be broken with the latest version. I say this because I used the filter successfully before the recent painter update. Could you maybe verify that it still is working? Or release the .sbs file?

Thank you for your report.
I fix the problem.
Would you download again?

Anthonyshenko, mine still shows up as black, how did you fix that?

AO works but not curvature (assuming user0=curvature?), in SP 2019

Edit: curvature works too! But is very less visible though.

An Overview Of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

With the help of the desktop virtualization technology known as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), a desktop operating system—typically Microsoft Windows—runs and is controlled from a data center. An endpoint device receives the virtual desktop picture over a network, enabling the user to interact with the operating system and its apps as though they were running locally. The endpoint could be a desktop computer, a thin client, or a mobile device.

End-user computing encompasses the idea of offering consumers virtualized desktops and apps (EUC). The abbreviation "VDI" was first used by VMware and has subsequently taken on official status in the industry. The most popular workload is Windows-based VDI, but Linux virtual desktop are also an option.

The organization's setup determines how the user accesses VDI; options include automatically presenting the virtual desktop at logon or requiring the user to select the virtual desktop before launching it. The virtual desktop assumes primary attention once the user enters it, and it has the same appearance and feel as a local workstation. The user makes the required application selections and starts working.

running system

VDI may use the operating system of a server or workstation. The most frequent definition of VDI in the past has been a virtualized workstation operating system assigned to a single user, but that definition is evolving.

Users may be presented with a 1:1 alignment or a 1:many ratio, often known as multi-user, for each virtual desktop. For instance, one virtual desktop assigned to one user is referred to as 1:1, whereas multiple virtual desktops shared under one operating system are referred to as a hosted shared model, or 1:many.

An operating system for a server can provide 1:1 or many:1 user services. When a server operating system serves as the platform for VDI, users will be able to more closely resemble a workstation operating system. Windows Media Player, Sound Recorder, and Character map/ are just a few of the extra features that Desktop Experience offers that are not already present in the installation of a standard server operating system.

A workstation operating system could previously only provide 1:1 user support. The multi-user feature that is now possible on Windows 10 thanks to Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD), which was previously only available on server operating systems, was disclosed by Microsoft in 2019. As a result, Windows 10 now supports real multi-user functionality for workstations. WVD should only be used by large businesses because it has strict license requirements and is only available on a small number of Microsoft Azure cloud servers.

display guidelines

Each endpoint device needs to either run an HTML5-based session that uses the appropriate session protocol or install the corresponding client software. Each vendor platform is built on a remote display protocol that sends session data between the client and the computer resource:


Architecture for Independent Computing (ICA)

Intelligent Data Transfer (EDT)


Brutal Extreme

IP over PC (PCoIP)


Desktop Sharing Protocol (RDP)"

The term "high-definition user experience" (HDX) from Citrix is essentially a marketing catch-all for ICA, EDT, and a few more capabilities. Users of VMware can base their sessions on RDP, PCoIP, or Blast Extreme. Microsoft Remote Desktop is limited to RDP usage.

The user's display and multimedia capabilities are controlled by the display protocol, or session protocol, and each protocol has different features and capabilities. Blast Extreme is a protocol developed internally by VMware, whereas PCoIP is licensed from Teradici. EDT and Blast Extreme are also User Datagram Protocol optimized (UDP).

To give users the best experience possible, the session protocols mentioned above minimize and compress the amount of data sent to and from the user device. When a user is using a VDI session to work on a spreadsheet, for instance, bitmaps are sent back to the user device along with mouse movements and keystrokes from the virtual server or workstation. The user interface only displays bitmaps of the data rather than the actual data itself. Only updated bitmaps are delivered when a user adds new data to a cell.


A number of factors, such as the increased acceptance of BYOD programs and the increased demand for a mobile workforce, are contributing to the exponential growth of the VDI industry. The need for cloud-based VDI, or DaaS, is particularly high. According to Allied Market Research, the cloud-based VDI market had a value of $3.6 million in 2016 and is anticipated to grow to more than $10 million by 2023.

Due to the suddenly increased demand for users to be able to work anywhere, the COVID-19 epidemic has increased interest in DaaS. DaaS, for example, made it easier for many businesses to switch to a work-from-home environment during the COVID-19 epidemic. This was because the https://washingtonindependent.com/complete-guide-to-virtual-desktop-infrastructure/ was easy to set up and could be scaled up. Washignton independent has a great guide to it.

Many businesses are starting their transition to the cloud, and designing the next-generation infrastructure must take VDI requirements into account. DaaS is a subscription-based SaaS model, and many software companies have already switched to it. This makes many experts think that it will become a common way to deploy software in the future.

It makes sense for vendors to use the cloud subscription model. Instead of one-time sales transactions that cause erratic income spikes, subscriptions produce a steady, recurring revenue stream. Because consumption-based services have enticing advantages, including cheaper maintenance fees and upfront expenses, vendors may advertise them more effectively.
