Use Substance Shader (.sbsar) files in Cycles4D?

Recommended Posts


How do I use the Substance Shader (.sbsar) files in Cycles4D?

I'm not referring to the individual substance texture files (i.e PNG/JPG/TIFF)
but rather the .SBSAR files imported through Extensions>Substance Engine>Load Substance

From the Technical Support. It works.




Unfortunately, you cannot use these files directly within Cinema 4D, however, there is a workaround.

If you load the substance file, you should get a new material with several channels and each channel will contain a Substance shader. What you will need to do is copy the Substance shader and paste it into an Image Texture node. 
This might be tricky as you will need a node for each channel and will have to build a sizeable node tree to deal with them all, however, this is the only way at the current time to use these files. 

I hope this helps and if you need anything else, please let us know. 

Kind regards,
