Adobe has made its entire Substance 3D Collection of apps available for free to eligible students and teachers. This free license includes Stager, Painter, Sampler, Designer, and the current Modeler Beta.
The 12-month education license gives higher education students and teachers access to all five of the Substance 3D applications for non-commercial use, including for creating portfolio material. Adobe Substance 3D has expanded its license program to include two new products that have joined the Substance 3D ecosystem: a scene layout and virtual photography app, Stager, and a modeling and shaping tool that works in virtual reality, Modeler.
The team notes that the license is not available to self-taught students, as well as to students and teachers from countries where access or usage of Adobe’s tools is restricted by local laws.
