How do I make height based ambient occlusion work?

How do I convert my painted height to AO? I'm currenly trying to convert surface noise to ao using the filter "MatFX HBAO". When I click it, it closes the filter dialog but doesn't activate anything. Unsure if this is a bug, user error, or if I need to manually enable certain Substance tools.

Hi @TacosAndBourbon,

 

Thanks for the message.

 

From my knowledge, the HBAO filter can't be in a mask. I advise you to simply drag and drop the filter in your Layer Stack, and make sure the AO channel is enabled in your Texture Set settings.

 

Regards,
