Adobe has added native support for Substance files to the latest beta build of Photoshop.
The change should enable users to import procedural materials in .sbsar format, such as those from Adobe’s Substance 3D Assets library, and adjust their properties inside the image-editing software.
Support for Substance materials and lighting configuration inside Photoshop
According to posts on the firm’s Substance 3D social media accounts, the beta version of the software “now supports Substance files, & it comes with parameters, but also lighting configuration!”
The news is unexpected, given that last year, Adobe discontinued Photoshop’s 3D features, which included import of 3D files, advising users interested in 3D to check out the Substance 3D tools instead.
According to this tweet from Adobe senior product manager Jeanette Matthews, the latest changes make it possible to “use the Substance files on any 2D layer as a ‘fill’”.
“It’s really useful for any kind of compositing and design work in 2D!”
Other than that, we don’t currently have any more information, but if you have an active Creative Cloud subscription, you should be able to download the latest beta build, and test the functionality for yourself.
Pricing, system requirements and availablity
Beta builds of Photoshop are available to users with active Creative Cloud subscriptions. In the past, it has taken up to six months for beta features to make their way into stable releases of Adobe software.
The current stable release, Photoshop 23.3.2, is available for Windows 10 and macOS 10.15+.
Photography subscription plans, which include access to Photoshop, start at $119.88/year. Single-app Photoshop subscriptions cost $31.49/month or $239.88/year.
