Quixel Bridge to D5 Tool | Convert Quixel assets into .d5a format when importing into D5 Render

This tool is developed by a D5 user Qingtian, and we’re releasing it to help more D5 users. It allows you to quickly convert Quixel assets (.fbx) into D5 models (.d5a) with its texture maps.

For now, 3D Assets and 3D Plants category of Quixel are supported.

This tool runs on D5 Render 2.3 and higher versions.

Welcome to have a try at this tool, and share your works, ideas or feedback with us.

Download Quixel-D5 Tool

Download D5 Render

How to use the tool?

    1

  2. Find your Library Path for Bridge(Edit > Settings), then go to subfolder “Downloaded”


    3

    Copy the file path and paste it into here, and save it.


  3. Click on Edit > Refresh, and you can find that your downloaded assets from Quixel Bridge are now displayed.

    Notice: The models should be in .fbx file format, and since D5 Render uses Metallic/Roughness workflow, we need to select corresponding maps:

  4. After finishing the Export Target settings, you can export those assets in .d5a file format, and the default export path is the folder storing the source file.

    After the model gets exported successfully, the .d5a file will be able to get imported into D5 Render with its original textures.



Now Quixel assets are successfully imported into D5, ready to use with all the maps.


FAQ

  1. Why did the program crash?

The exported model has to be in .fbx file format, while unsupported file formats can cause crash problems.

  1. Why is there false positive virus detection?

Due to the format problem of the compressed package, it may be mistakenly judged as a virus by the computer. Don’t worry, you can use it after decompression, and run an antivirus scan on it.

Hello D5 Team,

This looks like a very cool and easy way to import Quixel Assets. Thank you for that.

I installed it and followed the tutorial step-by-step, however when I press “export” button in the “Export Target” tab, I do not get copy path nor the .d5a format is created. Tried both Options “Default Path” as well as “Custom Path”.

All other settings in Quxel Bridge app are default, just like you have them shown in the printscreens here.

Do you have any idea, what could I be doing wrong ?

Many thanks in advance !!!

Kind Regards

I guess it is because you did not choose the correct Mesh LOD. (When you download the Quixel assets, you can select different LODs)


And when you use the tool to export the model, you need to make sure the Mesh LOD type you select is included in the downloaded LODs.

Otherwise it may fail to export models.
