Substance Alchemist allows importing several kind of resources:

  • Bitmap
  • Substance Archive (*.sbsar) file

All resources are linked and not imported. As a consequence, if the resource is removed or changed since you import it, the resource will not be found and can break what you did with it.


You can drag and drop or import your bitmaps in the Layers Stack, in the image inspiration slot, in image parameters of Substance files and image parameters of filters.

Substance Archive (*.sbsar) file

You can import in your Resources, in the Layers Stack and in the material inspiration slot any Substance Archive files.
