Creating an Ornate Carved Wood Material in Substance Designer
Create & digitize realistic materials for 3D
AI Powered: transform 2D Photos into 3D Materials
Easily import a reference photo into Alchemist and transform it into a high-quality 3D material.
This entire process takes a few seconds. Our delighter feature powered by Adobe Sensei removes shadows and enables you to achieve realistic materials from your captures.
Craft digital materials instantaneously.
Select a base material and apply one of Alchemist’s filters; within seconds, you’ve created a complex 3D material.
Use Alchemist’s intuitive interface to modify the material to suit your needs.
Combine 3D materials
Take existing materials and blend together seamlessly. Create hyper-realistic combinations of complex materials: tree bark with moss or stone with pebbles. Unlimited possibilities exist.
Define your blending criteria from options such as height, color, or custom masks to ensure uniform blending.
Achieve incredible results, all while increasing your productivity of 3D material creation.
Create Material Collections
Substance Alchemist's collection feature helps you build vast material libraries. Use moddboards to generate many variations of your materials.
Combine two or more materials to create complex surfaces easily.
Extract colors and generate libraries of variations.
Create a material from a single photo
Dedicated scan-processing workflow.
Remove shadows with machine learning algorithms.

Substance is built for you
Whether you need to put together a quick prototype, dive into an Indie project or power a massive AAA production, Substance is the reference toolset for 3D materials.
The Substance toolset is on its way to become an integral part of every film creation. From commercials to feature films and TV shows, Substance tools and materials have already been used on two Academy Award winners for best special effects.
Take your product visualization to a new level of realism. Whether you need quick, iterative, inspirational tools and content, or massive production engines, Substance is the leading toolset for 3D materials.
Take your product visualization to a new level of realism. Substance materials are cross-platform by definition — explore Substance workflows and integration in your favorite apps!
As real-time architecture visualization is becoming the new immersive way to present projects, more and more architects and designers are adopting Substance.
An Industry Standard
The Substance format works with every tool of your 3D creation workflow.
Our team develops and maintains integrations with all the major 3D apps. And the Substance format is an industry standard, readable and useable in every tool dedicated to 3D.
