Unreal Engine shader for Substance painter. (update)

 Since Substance Share is no more and what they have now does not allow uploading shaders, I will post it here and on twitter.
I highly recommend using Temporal Anti-Aliasing from Display settings view.

If there will be a demand for 

and clear coat,

 I will  add that later.

Allegorithmic are still using aged IS algorithm in their main shader that causes poor looking reflections.
I've updated the importance sampling to the state of the art random sampling and made temporal accumulation useful.

UE4 shader for Substance Painter 2018.3

The shader has been updated accordingly to the latest SP changes .
- Added Support for VT and mip-mapping

You should also use Temporal AA, it works really nice with my importance sampling algorithm, removing a lot of noise and jittering.

Substance Painter UE4 shader update

As you all know Allegorithmic has broken all of the custom shaders due to changes in their architecture.

You can use my shader without Allegorithmic's verifications from here:

Come visit my presentation on GDC 2018. I will talk about HDR image based lighting and how important actual "HDR" is for the final image. What is true HDR radiance and how to get it. Importance of photometric unit system in the lighting pipeline.

Unity 5 shader for Substance Painter

Here is SP viewport shader that emulates Unity 5 BRDF:

Download from Google disk

It's not 100% match unfortunately, but close enough.
It is how GGX-based BRDF  should work, not how it works in Unity.

HDR vs LDR Image Based Lighting

During my work as Technical and lighting artist, I was asked by level art team: “why we can’t use LDR images as skyboxes, they are so fancy and handpainted, why not?”
