  1. Hi, I need some help exposing materials on an object made in 3ds Max. Im modeling the assets in 3ds Max and sending them into Houdini to Unwrap, before sending them on to Substance Painter (then on to Unreal). It's a workflow that worked excellently when using Zbrush instead of Max, but i can't quite get Max to work with Houdini. Here is a visual example of what im getting across these softwares. The issue is that the material ID's i created in 3ds Max aren't locatable in Houdini. Ive tried exporting the objects from Max as .obj, .abc, and .fbx, but i just cannot get it to work like i did with zbrush, where you just make sure the polygroups are polypainted on the model before exporting/goz'ing to Houdini (polygroups/polypaint being zbrush's version of 3ds Max's material colour ID). Could someone please take a minute help me out. Many thanks
