Author Topic: [SOLVED] What's the best way to learn substance designer?  (Read 2093 times)

Not just Substance Designer, but any software that uses node based proceduralism. My strategy right now is do tutorials and take notes. If there is a node I never heard of or they do something with a node I never knew you could do with, I right it down. What more can I do to learn Substance Designer?

Hello ANormal Artist,

Indeed, the resources already mentioned by michael_11 and Colkaih are the go-to materials to get up and running with Substance Designer.

When you are comfortable with the fundamentals, a good way to go further is to open the nodes that are built into the library by default, and understanding how they are put together.


This is the graph that produces the 'Grunge Map 001' node.

Have fun with Substance Designer, we look forward to seeing what you come up with!
