Substance Painter Live Link ( Marmoset, Cinema 4D, 3DS Max, Maya, Modo, Blender, Houdini)

Written by

This is the full version of the Live Link connection between Substance Painter and multiple DCC’sย 

It works with Marmoset Toolbag, Cinema 4D, 3DS Max, Maya, Blender, Modo and Houdini so far, but i’ll keep adding other platforms

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

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

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 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
