It gives a better quality/smoother result than the legacy normal map filter in Substance Designer.

Hello Nicolas, I've added the sbs and sbsar files at the resources folder of Substance Designer and when I plug a height map to the Normal (Sobel) filter I just get a flat normal (just blue colour) and if I change it to OpenGL it crashes :s I'm using the 5.2 version.

Can You update to the last 5.2.5 version and retry?
We fixed bugs in the engine related to functions this filter uses.

I have a different issue that may be related. On 5.2.5, and while it displays correctly in the preview, the output node to any other node is blank. Nothing in RGBA.
