My substance painter says "[Effect Procedural View] Effect selected is not a substance file" when I try to load the filter.

@CyclonicTuna, did you extract the .sbsar from the .zip? If so, re-download and retry. If it's still broken I'll look into it.

It's a filter, so you can apply it to a material, smart material, layer, fill layer, and so on. It just takes a greyscale input and applies a gradient to that.

Is there any example of how to use it in substance designer? how to conect it to the other nodes to achieve the final effect in the preview. I can't get to it.

how do you use this in substance painter?

Thanks @Bek! For anyone struggling with the use you simply add it to your effect folder in Documents\Allegorithmic\Substance Painter\shelf , Then you can drag and drop it from your shelf (filter tab) in your layer stack as a stand alone layer. Will automatically create an empty layer and stack the filter under, Click on the filter and set it's channels to basecolor. Then you put under your newly created layer, any procedural map like the Galvanic grunges (they work well for that) and you are ready to tweak the params of the filter after that ;) ! you should reduce the opacity of the filter layer as well !

does this work with the latest version? i apply the filter to a fill layer set to gray, it just turns everything blue. when i adjust the parameters it just alternates different colors. not sure what i'm missing here or if this still functions as it should in the latest. please advise. thanks!

I´m using it with the same parameters but the effect doesn't work at the same way, is less realistic, it look like color patches.

Can't get these to work at all. Says 'undefined' when trying to import. Showing up blank in shelf.
