Allegorithmic Unveils New Texturing Authoring Software, Substance Designer

Today’s artists face major bottlenecks with current linear texturing workflows. Emerging 3D technology company


is addressing this problem with the announcement of its new non-linear authoring tool,

Substance Designer

, the latest tool in the Substance texturing ecosystem, which allows 3D artists to easily create millions of dynamic textures in a truly iterative and collaborative manner, paving the way to the next-generation of texturing pipelines for any kind of 3D production.

Substance Designer includes what the company refers to as “texturing painkillers,� which are powerful, customizable filters created within Substance Designer and available in the filter database. These filters make it possible to automatically solve problems that are often extremely tedious and sometimes impossible to do with linear, layer-based tools such as Adobe® Photoshop®.

“Substance Designer is an incredible tool that goes way beyond the creation process itself and is a true texturing mastermind,� said

Dr. Sébastien Deguy

, founder and CEO of Allegorithmic. “Professional and semi-professional 3D artists will be able to take their pipeline to the next level and save a tremendous amount of time while producing large volumes of textures.�

Key features in Substance Designer include:

– Iterative and collaborative workflow
– Hybrid approach: Bitmap, Vector Graphics and Procedural textures mixer
– Unlimited access to the Substance Content Database
– Dedication to texturing for 3D (automatic creation of normal, specular, diffuse, etc.)
– Dynamic textures
– Infinite asset variations

Substance Designer is available now and retails for $2,990 USD per seat. For more information or to request for academic purposes, please contact the company’s headquarters in Clermont-Ferrand, France at +33 4 73 34 70 86, or visit
