Substance Source plugin doesn't load


The Substance Source plugin which was included with Substance Painter is now deprecated, for technical and maintenance reasons. This page explains how to remove it and suggests alternative solutions.

  • The plugin is not included anymore with Substance Painter since version 2020.1 (6.1.0).
  • The plugin remains installed if it was installed with older versions.
  • The plugin may cease to work since it is not updated anymore.

Alternative

We recommend:

  • Substance Source, materials can be download from the website: https://www.substance3d.com/download/
  • Substance launcher: materials can be send to the application via the dedicated Substance Source tab by using the "Send To" functionality.

Uninstallation

We recommend removing the plugin since it is not working anymore:

  1. Go to your Documents/Allegorithmic/Substance Painter/plugin folder.
  2. Select and delete the folder named substance-source.
  3. Restart Substance Painter.

Removing the plugin won't affect the content that was already downloaded into the Shelf.
