Is there any runtime related documentation?

Are URP shaders supported?

In Unity editor, everytinhg works fine, but the "Substance Graph" marked as "Runtime only" does not output any texture once apk is compiled, only base color assigned to material is rendered.

I had a customer reach out to me about assets I sell which require Substance. The customer needs to use an older version of Unity(2018), however the Substance package which supports that version has been deprecated and is no longer offered for download.

 

This caught me by surprise, and I'm wondering is there a library I can point them to for compatible substance packages?


the old package:
https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/tools/utilities/substance-in-unity-110555

The new package requires version 2021 or higher, which is not a great range to be honest. Many users require  older versions than that.

@Jose238315303mz7 The new package requires version 2020.3.27x or higher. This was a mistake in the documentation and we have corrected it.

While that's better, it still leaves out a significant number of potential customers. why not leave up the packages and note that they are no longer being supported?

 

If there's no plan to release those packages again for legacy users, I guess my next question would be:

 

If I wish to continue selling  assets on Unity assets store to users with older versions of Unity, am I allowed to include older allegorithimic Substance packages with my assets?

 

The alternative is to lose customers from Unity 2019 and earlier...

Something I would reallty like to see that wasn't present in the old plugin; when exporting .SBSAR files,  I can open them in Substance Player and toggle between graph presets, but this wasn't an option in the old Unity plugin (and after a test drive of the new beta, still isn't). Currently even when I try to load a presets file in the new Unity plugin, it only applies the first preset instead of giving me a dropdown to select which of the presets I want. Support for this would really be game changing for development!

*I would also add that having a way to set a preset via a script API would be icing on the cake!

Hi, You can use the plugin on M1 Mac by choosing the Intel platform. 

Adding Apple Silicon support is on our roadmap, and we are planning to add that a couple of releases from now. Please stay tuned!

When you say choose the Intel platform, are you talking about using the non-Silicon version of Unity?

 

More importantly, when you say couple of releases - do you release every month?  A ball park estimate in months would be great.  

 

Thanks!

That's right!

We are aiming to release an update every month or two. And adding the Apple Silicon support is important, so we will be looking into that very soon. It's hard to give an exact month but probably in Q3 (between July and September). Hope this helps!

With the latest 0.0.100 update on Unity 2021.3 I'm able to import an sbsar, but after the editor reloads I see an error message relating to each output texture, and the material just looks metallic:

Fail to update substance output: target Unity texture is not RGBA32.
UnityEngine.Debug:LogError (object)
Adobe.Substance.SubstanceGraphSO:UpdateOutputTextures (intptr) (at Assets/Adobe/Substance3DForUnity/Runtime/Scripts/Unity Objects/SubstanceGraphSO.cs:247)

 

Also another snag that I'm hitting is that Substance graphs don't have assigned output textures after performing an AssetDatabase.Refresh(). I'm trying to have an automated script in Unity import an .sbsar and then iterate the texture outputs in order to bake the textures into a static Unity texture, but I end up getting an error where SubstanceGraphSO.Output is null. The solution for me currently is to do a refresh, manually intervene to wait for the substance to catch up with the renders, then continue the automation script. `MaterialUtils.AssignOutputTexturesToMaterial(graph)` doesn't seem to get it done for me, and I've been rooting around the API trying to figure out what I can do here, but any promising leads seem to either use interop pointers or are internalized classes.

That was really just a long-winded way of asking if there are any current or planned APIs available to emulate the old APIs `mySubstance.RenderSync()`?

When importing my own .sbsar materials into Unity 2021.3.5f1, the following error gets thrown:

Asset import failed, "Assets/Resources/material.sbsar" > ExecutionEngineException: String conversion error: Illegal byte sequence encounted in the input.
Adobe.Substance.SubstanceNativeHandler.CreateOutputCopy (System.Int32 graphID, System.Int32 outputID) (at Assets/Adobe/Substance3DForUnity/Runtime/Scripts/SubstanceNativeHandler.cs:221)

The material is not imported and an empty folder is generated.
However, this bug is not present for assets downloaded from Substance 3D Assets (adobe.com) Are there any special export settings that I am missing so that my materials can be correctly imported by Unity?

Hi,

I'm really liking the new plugin this far, but a good portion of the sbars that worked fine with the old Allegorithmic plugin are no longer usable and produce this error instead:

ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.
Parameter name: index
System.Collections.Generic.List`1[T].get_Item (System.Int32 index) (at <c2a97e0383e8404c9fc0ae19d58f57f1>:0)
Adobe.SubstanceEditor.Importer.SubstanceImporterEditor.OnPreviewSettings () (at Assets/Adobe/Substance3DForUnity/Editor/Scripts/Importer/SubstanceImporterEditor.cs:393)
UnityEditor.PropertyEditor.DrawPreviewAndLabels () (at <5f40cdb07bd44d76a23dad985a4ec283>:0)
UnityEngine.UIElements.IMGUIContainer.DoOnGUI (UnityEngine.Event evt, UnityEngine.Matrix4x4 parentTransform, UnityEngine.Rect clippingRect, System.Boolean isComputingLayout, UnityEngine.Rect layoutSize, System.Action onGUIHandler, System.Boolean canAffectFocus) (at <e262c2d839014c8090373617ef295bab>:0)
UnityEngine.GUIUtility:ProcessEvent(Int32, IntPtr, Boolean&)

Here is one of those affected sbars as an example: https://ambientcg.com/view?id=PaintedMetalSubstance001

Tested under 2021.3.8f1 on Windows 10.
