Export UDIM textures with description rather than udim number?

Hi all, I am new to using UDIM, currently using the last version of Painter (before all this adobe update, not ready for that yet). I am frustrated trying to keep track of my assets by their udim number and would prefer to send them out with their description name (which i have added in the list next to the UDIM ID). I know that you add .$udim to get the number in the name, but what do you put in to get the description instead? ie SofaLeather instead of 1003. Is there a way?

We had several similar suggestions on that subject already, so you are not alone. We have discussed about it internally but no ETA/promises regarding if we are gonna do something about it for now.

You would use the tags, but you still want the UDIM number at the end for importing outside of Painter.

 

  • $mesh : name of the mesh file that was loaded in the project
  • $textureSet : name of the texture set

 

So example, $mesh_$textureSet_BaseColor(.$udim)

 

This would give something like: door_panel_BaseColor.1001

Hi,thanks for replying.  I already know about Unum number and mesh.  What I NEED is to be able to export the udim description field in the name.

You're restricted to the tags allowed, there is nothing further you can add beyond typing something manually in the output template field for that channel.

 

If the discription is static for all the sets then add it to the template prior to the (.$udim)

Hi, thank you for responding.  Being able to add something like (.$desc.udim) or something like that to get description and udim at the end of the file name would be ideal.  It would work way better when the 'machine' translating the files is a human and not another piece of software. 🙂
