Substance Designer 2 is a powerful material processing solution that brings smart texturing at the heart of 3D creation pipelines. It's designed to help any artist transform all kinds of image resources, from classic bitmaps to exclusive procedural elements, into substances. And it's available for Mac OSX!
Non-linear & iterative workflow
Creating substances in the node-based interface of Substance Designer 2 is a completely non-linear process: you are free to make any change you want at any time, and all your changes will automatically be applied to all the outputs of your substance (diffuse, specular, normal etc.), so you can create and edit complete texture sets in a much faster way than with traditional tools. Substance Designer 2 also features a large set of resources for every 3D artist to achieve great results whatever their skills, including a library of 130 substance sources. Any user will be able to use the built-in filters such as the embedded B2M Lite to quickly boost existing bitmaps.
No other texturing solution integrates into your current pipeline as Substance Designer 2 does. Your textures created in Photoshop or taken from your libraries of bitmaps can be used as resources for new substances. Even better, whether you create a dynamic material or a filter, you can import your substance into any compatible solution such as Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Maya 2012, and Unity 3.4 (and higher) and edit its parameters to generate new variations in real-time directly in your favourite DCC tool or game engine. You can also download Allegorithmic's free Substance Player to render your substances into classic bitmaps.
