TRAINING COURSE – Allegorithmic Substance Painter


Allegorithmic Substance Painter is the industry standard for texturing 3D objects with Substances (Physically Based Rendering).



Substance Painter is able to procedurally texture 3D objects with both substances and normal textures. Its intuitive user interface is artist friendly and very similar to other programs such as Adobe Photoshop. Therefore, a quick start is possible. In addition to its use for texturing game assets, Substance Painter has now arrived in Hollywood productions and is also used in many feature film texturing pipelines.
