Substance Plug-in for Unreal Engine 4
Allegorithmic has released a beta plug-in for Unreal Engine 4, allowing developers to integrate the Substance Engine with UE4. This allows users to import Substance files into their UE4 project, expose the substance’s parameters, and allow users to tweak them in engine and have the Substance Engine recompute all the output texture maps. The plug-in can be downloaded for free from Github.
