"Substance Designer offers a new way of creating textures. If you develop for game engines, it’s a must-buy."
4/5 – 3D World Mag

"I used the program to make higher quality textures for my game than I normally could make."
Indie Game Mag

"An indie development team that needs a lot of natural or urban tileables with quick turnaround would probably find Substance Designer to be a huge time saver, and ultimately worth the investment.

Гибкий и мощный инструмент для процедурного текстурирования. Текстуры можно получить в виде растровых изображений, либо в виде субстанций (в таком случае размер комплекта текстур уменьшается в несколько раз). Возможность создавать текстуры из одного изображения с помощью b2m lite (близжайший аналог - CrazyBump), который входит в комплект. Создание собственных эффектов (подтеков, трещин и т.д.), материалов, которые в дальнейшем можно будет использовать для разных моделей. Автоматическое запекание NormalMap, AmbientOcclusion, Position и т.д. (таким образом отпадает нужда в использовании xNormals). Крутой реалтайм рендер Yebis (куча настроек, ИмейджЭффектов, и т.д.) - можно сохранить изображение и опубликовать его (отпадает нужда в использовании MarmosetToolbag). В итоге этот пакет заменяет сразу несколько программ и вам не нужно запоминать кучу настроек для разных программ и метаться среди них.

Short question: why should I purchase Substance Designer?

Short answer: because it'll save you infinite amounts of time in the long run, and time is money.

I'll admit I was hesitant to purchase SD; it looked to me as though I was paying $75 for an edge wear generator, so I held back for many months until it went on sale, but now that I've purchased it, I cannot imagine my production pipeline without it. Creating a substance may take me a few more hours than creating, say, a photoshoped material, but when done, I can alter that substance in so many ways SO incredibly fast that I can create realistically about 20 to 50 completely different materials in the time it'd take me to create three or four non-substance materials from scratch. And remember, these are procedurally generated and entirely seamless materials that take up literally under HALF A MEGABYTE in file size.

For anyone who uses non-Substance enabled programs (like me [goooOOO BLENDER!]), don't let that stop you from purchasing SD. Yes, you will have export out your substance's bitmaps and reapply them every time you want to change it, but that takes three minutes max; if you had to create a new material every time you wanted something different without SD, I guarantee you it's going to take longer than three minutes.

Whether I'm using SD to create procedural materials or using it to fine tune my models' bitmaps, I have found the enitire experience worth every cent I spent on it. For those of you who are interested in creating seamless, tileable materials, I "highly" recommend SD as this is, in my opinion, it's strongest front.

I <3 Substance Designer!

This is not just a tool but a texturing workflow. On top of that, it's a lot of fun to use. The ability to non-destructively edit, preview and output all your map channels simultaneously is brilliant. I highly recommend SD to any aspiring or professional 3D artist.

I've used Substance Designer for a couple of weeks. I followed the tutorials, installed the plugin into UE4 and got it working there. I've built a lot of materials in UDK3 for a year so I'm familiar with the complexities of building a material.

This is an amazing tool. It allows you to bake high definition models onto low definition models creating a normal map that simulates the high definition model. You can also bake object groups into a color mask that can apply different materials based on the mask color. The nodes are more intuitive than UE4 and feel natural to a long term Photoshop user (which I am).

The staff on the forum are very responsive as well. They provide quick and insightful answers to any questions users have.

The main problem is that a substance is not a first class material in UE4. In the end, each instance of a material will produce 4 bitmaps: normal, roughness, metallic and normal. This prevents you from getting any texture reuse. In the long run that is a lot of memory consumption.

There are only 2 ways around this problem:
1. they create materials based on substance designer nodes
2. a substance becomes a first class material that can be applied directly to a mesh

I will continue to use Substance Designer to plan out my materials and produce bakes. These bakes are an amazing addition to my material toolset. but.. I can not recommend this product because I will have to replicate each substance by hand as a UE4 material so that I can reuse textures.
