Substance Designer Live Link (3ds Max, Blender, Cinema 4D, Houdini, Maya, Modo, Toolbag)


This is the full version of the Live Link connection between Substance Designer and multiple DCC's

It works with Marmoset Toolbag 3, Cinema 4D R17+, 3DS Max, Maya, Blender (2.79 & 2.80), Modo and Houdini so far, but i'll keep adding other platforms

It is compatible with Windows (Mac and Linux coming soon...)

If you are thinking about getting this plugin illegally way please consider this first:

1) I'm a single developer so piracy really impacts me directly and that hurts the possibility to afford buying the software licenses I need to keep the plugin updated, also it reduces my ability to add new features.

2)Please read the "You really cannot afford it?" section in this webpage. Why bother getting the software illegally if there are ways to get it legally. I'm trying help everyone I can to get the plugin.

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 have two options either send me an email, and we'll see what can be done, or send me a pic via twitter (@ymmanuel_who) of you sharing a cookie, sandwich, coffee or whatever with someone who needs it... I want to create a website with all those pics of artists helping people!!! XD and maybe get some support of other plugin/content creators to join me in the effort

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

Check the youtube channel playlist for tutorials on how to install & use the plugin

  • 3DS Max Arnold won't update automatically the shader textures if you are using UDIMs (Arnold in 3ds max known limitation)
  • Some antivirus may detect the exe files as false positive threats, the exe files are only a way to simplify the usage, otherwise you would require to install some extra libraries depending on your computer.
  • You need to use the Octane version 3.08 stable or higher, since the implementation changed a lot
