  3. Include a File/Save Menu

    It seems strange to me not to have a File/Save drop down menu at the top like all other software has. I'm not sure why this wasn't included as standard. Makes me feel insecure about having my work saved!:)

  4. AI Res Learning

    it would be great if we can get AI to up rez images that have low imported resolutions into the B2M. Having 1k textures up rez'd to true 4k image quality and not just scaled up to 4k would be incredible

    something like this... https://letsenhance.io/

  5. Add an HSL Color Adjustment Layer/Filter

    Add a layer or filter that allows for targeting of existing colors in a material, then provides the ability to adjust the hue, saturation, and/or lightness of the targeted color. Functionality like this already exists in both Adobe Lightroom's Develop module and in Adobe Camera Raw. Thanks!

  7. Expose $time variable in Alchemist

    Allow access to animation parameters for those Substances created with a $time variable the way one can with Substance Player. In this way we can export animated materials using the better, more updated features of Alchemist.

    Additionally, maybe even incorporate that feature from Designer allowing us to create animated materials directly within Alchemist?

  8. More space between scroll bar and delete button in library

    UI request: can we get a bit more space between the delete button and the scroll bar? Or if there is a way for me to tweak the layout, I'd love to know. Thanks!

  9. Allow Clipping of a Layer/Filter into Only the Layer Directly Below the Active Layer

    It would be great if it was possible to clip a layer/filter into the layer directly below so that only the layer below is affected. This would be similar to using a Clipping Mask in Photoshop.

  10. Allow seamless integration with Cinema 4D/Redshift

    I'd love to see a feature where maps could be exported from Alchemist, a Redshift for C4D material would automatically be created, and the exported maps would automatically be plugged into the correct nodes/inputs in Redshift's Shader Graph. A feature like this would save me soooooo much time!

  17. 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.

  19. Expand color variation to random assignments of extracted colors

    I would LOVE to see a generate x random number of variations button that would pull random colors from your extracted colors and assign them to ALL color inputs randomly.

  20. Add Snapshots

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