How do I get metadata to be stored within the SBS file as so that it can be read within a file manager. As applying metadata though Substance Designer isn't apply to the file properties and unreadable within a file manager.

Hello,

 

Substance 3D Designer cannot set the metadata for a Substance 3D file (SBS) at the operating system level.

That being said, you may use our Python API to get the metadata of a package or a package resource as a dictionary (class sd.api.sdmetadatadict.SDMetadataDict), then parse it to set the SBS file's metadata using a Python package which offers this functionality.

 

I hope this is helpful!

 

Best regards.
