They use Substance

Early on I was really taken with the power and flexibility of Substance Designer and its ability to create endless iterations of surfaces with the same level of fidelity as scan data.

Substance improved our texturing workflow by allowing us to see a ‘closer to final’ result in the viewport and to help eliminate any values that were incorrect through a PBR workflow.

Substance Source has freed my time. I can download rich resources directly from the ready-made material library and directly check the specific material’s look in Unreal Engine. Also, I can try different presets through the presets of the .sbsar file.

Substance Designer and Substance Painter are must-have tools in the game dev stack. But if you work as a product designer or 3D generalist, you can still benefit a lot from these tools, so I’d definitely recommend checking it out.

Substance by Adobe is a monthly service that provides you with tools and content including access to the latest versions of Substance Painter, Substance Designer, Substance Alchemist and access to downloadable content through Substance Source.

You get access to a Substance license that allows you to start using all the latest versions of the software as soon as they are released: Substance Painter, Substance Designer, and Substance Alchemist. You also get access to the Substance Source content library, with the ability to download content each month.

Welcome! The easiest way to manage your software builds and licenses is to download the Substance launcher. If you prefer to download and install the software manually, you can find the software builds and license key files in the “Licenses” section of your Substance account on our website. 

Yes, you keep the assets you already downloaded.
Canceling your subscription will cancel the automatic renewal but you will still have access to your licenses until the end of the subscription period you paid for. Your Substance Source downloads and materials stay on your account even after your subscription expired. 

As a student, you are eligible for a free non-commercial license of Substance. You will need to fill out the student form and attach a proof of enrollment to your school/university/college displaying your name, the name of your school/university/college and the date during which you will be a student.

Perpetual Indie licenses for both Substance Painter and Substance Designer are available on Steam.
