There are two ways to export Mixes. You can export either a Megascans asset to your Local Library, or customized maps for further use.
Export Customized Maps
Under the Export Section, you can use the powerful export features of Mixer to export customized component maps of your Mix.
From here, you can name your project, enter the location where you want your mix to be export to, choose export format (custom, JPG, TGA, PNG, TIFF, EXR) and resolution and select the maps you want to Export. You can also add a custom map by clicking on “Add Map” at the very bottom.
Go to file, and select “Quick Export” to Export to the project using the settings specified in the Export Section. You may also select “Export to Library” right underneath to Export directly to Bridge.
Export Mix To Local Library
This can be done from File > Export to Library. This will save your project as a Megascans asset in the Custom folder within your Local Library (see Folder Structure). Your baked Mix (in case of Surface) will also be available for use in Bridge and in Mixer as a surface layer.
- Maps: Select the maps to include in your surface export. Specify which maps to export by using the corresponding checkboxes.
- Category: Select an existing category to add the surface export to, or create a new one.
- Resolution: Adjust the resolution of the surface export.
- Tags: Enter tags for the surface. When searching in the Local Library, surfaces with matching tags will come up.
Using Exported Surfaces In Mixer
Once you’ve exported your Mix, browse to your Local Library in Mixer to view and use the newly exported material or asset. If your Mix is not visible, refresh your Local Library from Library > Refresh.
Using Exported Surfaces In Bridge
Your exported Mix will appear in the Custom section in Bridge. If you’re unable to see it, go to View > Reload in Bridge to refresh your Local Library.
