I am trying to resize a tile from a small subway to a 12 x 24 but I don't see where you can resize a tile.  There is a slide bar for Tile 1 Material Scale but sliding it does not change the size. Any suggestions?

Just learning the software myself but I am not sure you define the actual size in Substance.  I would try the 2:1 Large Tile "Shape" then in Chief assign the dimensions of 48" x 48".   I think that should work fine for a white subway tile.  If you have a random pattern or texture just use the regular 2:1 Tile setting @ 192"

I did do a nice tile in SP using the 2:1 Large Tile then exported and added to CA but when I opened the new material in CA and adjusted the texture size, it did make the tile larger to the 12 x 24 I needed but it also made the grout lines huge.  In SP I had them set to 1/8" but the final edit in CA they were probably 1"+  Also there is a pattern repeat so not a seamless texture.

Hey Rob,


-To get your tile as the correct size (12" x 24" per tile) you need to count the number of tiles in the image.  Large 2:1 shows 2 tile across and 4 tall, so 24"x2 across = 48" and 12" per tile tall, 4x12" = 48", so your scale in Chief will be 48x48.


-Grout lines can be controlled with the "grout width" slider under grout controls but if it still looks to large when you get it in Chief, you'll need to bump up the resolution in substance player ("Output size" at the top) this will give you more pixels to work with so the SP can make the grout smaller. 


-If your tile isn't seamless, usually the offset slider is the culprit.  I can't see what your offset is so I can't be sure but the 2:1 large was seamless at .5 offset, so maybe your offset is off by one tile length?  let me know if this wasn't it.  Could be a couple different things.


Let me know if you hit any more snags.
