Cinema 4D


The Substance plugin is natively installed in Cinema 4D R18 and higher and developed by Maxon.

 Substance Plugin Components

The Substance plugin basically consists of two components: Substance files and a Substance shader.

  • Substance assets represent the actual Substances within Cinema 4D. They are managed in the Substance Asset Manager.
  • Substance shader connects output channels of Substance assets with Cinema 4D material channels.
