Hey guys,

I'm trying to get a custom material to export a layer properly so I can combine other shaders. I've attached the .hip file below.

This is the material I built. As a simple example, it works as intended. However, there's no layer yet:

So,  I dove into the principle_core shader and was able to (unsuccessfully) create a pbrdiffuse node, plug that into the layerpack and then export the layer for mixing:

But unfortunately when I assign the layermix to the object, I lose the ramp. It seems to take just the first input of the ramp:

It's probably very simple, but this is driving me crazy. Any ideas?
