PBR Bridge v1.2 - More Substance Painter automation & versions supported!

Hey everyone!

I’m pleased to announce to you that PBR Bridge v1.2 is now available.
Thanks to the community feedback on the discord, a lot of improvements have been made regarding Substance version compatibility and its workflow.

I know some of you were waiting for this backward compatibility, so it’s with great pleasure that I can tell you that is is now compatible from Substance version 2019.3.3 to 7.3.0 (including Steam Edition - cf documentation for the new Steam checkbox).

The addon now quietly install a custom Substance addon (named wr-link) which removes almost all useless remaining manual tasks!
