Hello,
I have been trying to figure out how to use Substance within Houdini and everything I have seen so far says it should be there (from the SideFX Labs plugin, which I have installed), but I can't find it anywhere.

https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/sidefx-labs-substance-plugin/ [www.sidefx.com]
According to this link, it should be accessible right in a geo node as seen here:



I do not have that, though:



Am I missing something obvious somehow?

Thanks,

An update to this, looks like I thought I had v348 of the SideFX tools installed, as it said I did in the launcher, but it turns out that while I was trying to get vertex animation working I must have changed the version of the tools within the in-editor updater as it was at something like v29x.

I updated it to v348 and it actually shows up now, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work very well. It just shows what looks like maybe a heightmap (mostly white, grey scale only) and doesn't change any when I adjust the sliders or anything. One step at a time I guess, lol.
