Author Topic: Where to start?  (Read 1855 times)

Hi all,

I've just purchased the substance indie pack and am wondering where to start? Bitmap2Material is straight forward much like crazy bump but better. Should I start learning Painter or Substance designer first?

Thanks,

Hi,

I would start with Substance Designer, as this is the core of the Substance Pipeline

and, always highly recommended for studying each indivdual node:

Hello and welcome to Substance!

I would say to start with Substance Painter. It's more intuitive and easier to pick up to start. We don't have many Substance Painter tutorials as we are holding off until the final release since the UI and workflow will change often throughout the beta. However, here are some good videos to get you started.

Here is an entire course on Substance Designer 4.1.1.

Yes, I believe so. We allow our commercial licenses on two computers and I think it's the same for the Indie Pack.

let me know if you have issues.
