Substance Plugin for Blender: Use substances (sbsar files) inside blender

55 ratings

*This product is up just for historic purposes since Adobe finally launched their own native plugin for blender, for current users, if possible I will expand on adobes functionality to streamline the use of substances and I will let you know in time

This is a plugin to use Substance files (.sbsar) inside Blender

The latest update allows you to import the substances easier and adjust them to see the results in the viewport faster so you can iterate and speed up your texturing workflow.


Since the SBSAR format is proprietary and protected by Substance , to use this plugin is required that you have installed the Substance Automation Toolkit which is not included here, you need to directly acquire it from Substance

Install & Usage

Are you a patron?

Wait don't buy it just yet!!! first check my Patreon page and search for the discount code!

You really cannot afford it?

I still trust honest people that are in a rough situation, and I'm happy to help them, so you can contact me via discord, and we can talk about it, all I ask in return is that you show some kindness towards a stranger if you have the chance, remember the most important thing is to help each other!!! 

Are you a studio or need an custom shader?

Feel free to support more if you are installing in multiple machines, up to you how much you want to, also if you need a specific Shader configuration, instead of the default ones, let me know and we'll see what can be done
