How to convert to PBR paint. 0.0
Today I am going to be explaining to you guys how to convert any car mod's paint into PBR from the old paint style.
Spawn the vehicle you want to conver to PBR.
Press F11 (don't get scared, it may look confusing but I will walk you through it & I've also included images).
Click the "windows tab" in the top left part of your screen and open the "Materials Editor".
Select the texture you want to change, it will usually have the vehicles name or be called paint or something similar. The cube that displays the texture should be chrome and have a reflection in it like shown.
Once you've selected the correct texture there should be a green button that says "Switch to V1.5 (PBR)", click that button. After that you should scroll down till you see a box that says "Instance Basecolor", select that box. After you've done that scroll down until you find "Metallic Map" and slide the "Factor" slider all the way to the right. Then continue to scroll down till you've found "Roughness Map" and do the same thing by sliding the "Factor" slider all the way to the right. Once done with that go to "Advanced Properties" which should have a drop down arrow, click it. Once you've opened Advanced properties, find "Clear Coat Map" and put the factor slider to the far right just like before but this time you need to make sure the "Factor Roughness" slider needs to go all the way to the left.
Scroll all the way to the top of the "Materials Editor" and click the save icon to save your changes, you've officially converted a paint to PBR!
I've included the vehicle that I converted to PBR for you guys to enjoy! (wheels may be unapplied when you spawn it, use the command control W to apply the wheels yourself.)
