  1. Display SBSAR presets as a dropdown list in Create Mode - as in Designer and Painter

    The only current way to access SBSAR presets is via searching the library in create mode. Could we have the presets display as a dropdown list a la Painter and Designer. I created a custom filter which relies on this preset workflow and searching and dragging is not as responsive.

  3. png transparent color

    When importing a png and using a B2M layer, transparent color is set to black. Could you add an option to define this color (ex: mid-grey) so that it has a lower impact on height and normals.
    tx.

  4. Adding optional blending mask directly from sbs or sbsar file

    Currently in Alchemist, you have height map, curvature map, ambient occlusion map, and custom image as blending mask. Right now I have some filters that contains mask for layering in Alchemist. However, I can only save them into AO channel and then I can use the mask in Alchemist. It would be nice that Alchemist detects optional mask inside sbs or sbsar files.

  7. change the Mesh menu location

    it's really inconvenient to go to the side menu every time I want to change the mesh from plan to sphere or cube I feel like it should be right next to the displacement and texture tiles button at the bottom right of the viewer

  9. Easier away to share Alchemist projects, cloud sync

    I have two computers that I use daily. I wish there's an easier way to share my Alchemist materials between computers so that I don't need to copy the folder in AppData to my usb drive everyday. A cloud sync maybe?

  10. Contextual menus

    Alchemist is missing contextual ("Right Click") menus in many places I would normally expect them. For example, I'm enable to right-click a substance inside of a collection and rename or delete it. I also can't right-click a substance to clone it if I want to make multiple copies (in other words, in UX terms the functionality for "Save As" or "Duplicate" isn't "discoverable").

  11. Allow materials to be directly used from Substance Painter shelf

    I have a highly organized Substance Painter shelf (Documents/Allegorithmic/Substance Painter/shelf directory) and I'd like to be able to directly use Materials from that collection inside Substance Alchemist.

    Currently, Alchemist uses a completely separate and isolated set of materials which makes it a bit of a pain to manually copy materials from Painter to Alchemist for use.

    Not looking to automatically export to Painter, but being able to have the Painter shelf inside Alchemist would be a huge time saver.

  12. Ability to change Alchemist save path

    As a Substance Source download path can be changed, It will be great to have the same option for Alchemist files. One reason can be cloud synced folder between two (or more) workstations, so on every workstation I'm able to open and tweak my Alchemist projects.

  16. Add Snapshots

    Add a snapshot feature like the one in Photoshop, so it's possible to easily compare various looks/states.
