Adobe has released new Substance integration plugins for Unreal Engine 5 and Unity, making it possible to edit procedural materials in Substance .sbsar format natively inside the game engines.

Both plugins are free to download, and are officially still in beta.

Edit SBSAR materials natively inside Blender
As with Adobe’s other Substance 3D integration plugins, the new add-ons enable artists to import materials in .sbsar format and edit their parameters natively inside Unreal Engine or Unity.

As well as custom materials created in Substance 3D Designer, Adobe’s material authoring software, users can import stock materials from online libraries like Adobe’s Substance 3D Assets.

Both game engines already have Substance integration plugins – Substance in Unreal Engine and Substance in Unity – so the new add-ons are rewritten and renamed versions of the existing tools.

In the case of the new Substance 3D for UE5 plugin, the main change is support for Unreal Engine 5, the next major version of the game engine, currently available as a public preview.

According to the release notes, the feature set is identical to the existing plugin for Unreal Engine 4.

In the case of the new Substance 3D for Unity plugin, the main benefit is improved performance.

The listing in the Unity Asset Store doesn’t include a changelog, but according to this tweet from Adobe product director Jérémie Noguer, it has been “rebuilt from the ground up” for stability and performance.

License conditions and system requirements
The Substance 3D plugin for UE5 is available as a prerelease build from Adobe’s website. It is compatible with the Preview release of Unreal Engine 5, running on Windows, macOS and Linux.

To download it, you have to agree to Adobe’s prerelease agreement, which prohibits users from making public use of the software, and means consenting to Adobe monitoring your use of it.

The Substance 3D plugin for Unity is available as a free public beta for Unity 2021.1.28+. It’s available through the Unity Asset Store, so it’s covered by the standard Asset Store EULA.

The existing Substance in Unreal Engine and Substance in Unity plugins are avaialble free for Unreal Engine 4.8-4.37 and Unity 2018.4.14+.
