Substance Designer 2020 - Jerc
Substance Designer's Winter 2019 release is now available!
This is the first major release for the 2020 cycle and the last one for owners of the 2019 version.

  • Color Management, with OpenColorIO support. Ensure consistency between your materials and renders between Substance Designer and your renderer of choice with the popular ACES color profile.

  • A new Curvature from Mesh baker provides much more accurate bakes with smoother results and better handling of intersecting geometry among other improvements.

  • The Ambient Occlusion baker is also getting some love with a new Ground Plane option to simulate the occlusion generated by the ground under an asset.

  • The new Atlas Tool is the perfect companion if you are working with scanned atlases, no matter their origin. This new node will automatically split all the elements of the atlas and allow you to easily scatter them on a material, with tons of control.

  • Presets and Preview Mode have been improved as well, with better performance and a revamped interface.

For a deep dive into these features and more, head over to the related article on the Substance Magazine.
