Updates to Adobe add-ons for Blender

The thread about Adobe and Blender was locked so posting this here: A new beta is available for the Substance add-on and it adds Linux support among other things. Changelist below.


  • Linux support: Ubuntu and CentOS distributions
  • External Parameter Preset (.SBSPRS) support: Create, load and apply external (custom) parameter presets direct to Blender!
  • Opacity input is connected to the Alpha channel in BSDF material
  • Update and Uninstall Substance 3D Integration Tools from Substance 3D add-on preferences
  • Substance Engine v. 8.2.0 compatibility


  • Emission/Emsisive map is not generating
  • Crash occurs with users who have wide characters in their folder structures

Known Issues:

  • Substance 3D Integration Tools continues to run even when Blender is closed after a crash occurs
  • Substance 3D Integration Tools is disabled when Blender is open in multiple sessions
  • No error message is displayed when a Substance 3D material cannot be applied to an object
  • Substance 3D Integration Tools crashes when dragging a parameter slider multiple times (Mac version only, specifically Catalina)
  • Parameters do not update live in viewport when using Cycles render

Probably not the right place to ask, And I’m sorry for that, but is it possible to have an Adobe add-on to integrate Blender and After Effects?

What kind of integration would you like to see between the 2?

Usually, there is some integration between After and some other programs (don’t know if I can list them here).

Transfering lights, empties, camera information to be used between both apps.

You can see more here. This is a new add-on: https://aescripts.com/blenderae/

Supported in Object Mode:

  • Cameras to Ae Cameras.
  • Lights to Ae Lights.
  • Objects transformations to Nulls.
  • Empties transformations to Nulls.
  • Planes (planar) to precomposed shape layers.

Supported in Edit Mode:

  • Selected vertices (in vertex mode) to Nulls
  • Selected planar Faces (in face mode) to precomposed shape layers.

Where I can found this release, what link, please?
