Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

What is this Substance error?

"Substance: invalid assembly, cannot import file" pops up when I try to import an SD6 SBSAR file into UE4.13.2 and fails to import. I've fixed what I thought was causing the problem but it still persists. Older exported SD files work fine. I'm guessing it has something to do with compatibility issues between UE4.13.2 and SD6. Has anyone else had this pop up? I've changed my compatibility mode to Engine v5 and it still occurs.

UPDATE: I have found out that I can import the files into a new project but won't import into the project I'm working on.

UPDATE 2: I've practically destroyed a copy of my SD material to it's most basic form and I'm still get this result on the Output Log. I have no idea how to fix this.
