To open Substance Source, simply click on the Substance Source logo in the main toolbar of the application. This should open a new window allowing to browse the library.

New content : Alphas, Procedurals, Filters and more

In this new version we are adding more than 300 new assets. We added sci-fi, geometric, medieval, or even Celtic themed content in the alphas. It also includes a lot of new brushes and scanned handprints/fingerprints. We also provide some handy new filters such as the MatFX Detail Edge Wear which allow to generate scratches directly from the normal information painted on your mesh.

Here is the list of the new content :

  • 4 New Fonts (Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Typewriter, Segment)
  • 230 New Alphas (Mix of patterns and scanned images)
  • 50 New Procedurals (Mostly Fabric pattern for medieval and contemporary clothing)
  • 2 New environment maps (Mondarrain and Villa Nova Street)
  • 9 New filters (MatFX Detail Edge Wear, Clamp, HBAO, etc.)

We also updated some of the existing assets to make them work better, such as the default environment map which now look less yellow :
