Substance dynamic texture format is now fully and natively supported within Maya 2012 and up, bringing all the power of substances into your favorite DCC tool.
NATIVE INTEGRATION, NO ADDITIONAL PLUG-IN REQUIRED
Since Maya 2012, the Substance file format is natively integrated within your favorite DCC application.
Using substances in Maya is as simple as any other bitmap image format: create a Substance node either in Hypershade or Node Editor, load your substance file, create your material, apply onto your mesh, and here you go!
Now the only, slight difference between a bitmap texture and a substance is that substances are multi-output and dynamic.
