Adobe Substance 3D Designer is the industry’s reference 3D Material Creation app. More than 95% of AAA game projects currently in development use Substance 3D as well as the most prestigious visual effects and animation studios.
You will get free updates on Steam up to the end of 2022
Create amazing looking materials with full control and an infinity of variations. Edit complete texture sets instantly with Substance 3D Designer’s node-based workflow and produce procedural, scan-based or hybrid Substance and MDL materials that will be directly compatible with your renderer or game engine.
Introduced last year, generate and assemble procedural 3D models! A new graph type allows you to create 3D models, either by generating geometry from scratch, importing your own assets or combining both. Create parametric and tweakable furniture, plants, vehicles, building or abstract contraptions.
