We are the makers of Substance. Our mission? To make the best tools for 3D texturing and material creation, and to put them into the hands of artists and creatives worldwide.

All the tools you need to texture your 3D assets in one application. Unleash your creativity with a powerful and non-destructive workflow. Substance Painter contains Smart Materials, Smart Masks, and integrated 8K bakers, as well as a WYSIWYG PBR real-time viewport.

Substance Designer

Create any kind of material from fully procedural to scan-based hybrids, complete with presets, using industry-standard software for material authoring. Produce tileable textures up to 8K using a non-destructive workflow, process real-world scans, and export to any DCC tool, game engine, or renderer.

Substance Source

Browse and download over 1500 fully customizable, professional-level assets for any kind of project. Materials include presets for faster iteration and .sbs source files for maximum customization and learning.

Project Substance Alchemist

Procedural, capture-based, AI-based, and manual material creation come together. Create, customize, and manage entire libraries and export them anywhere.

Substance Integrations

Bring Substance into your workflow with light, easily tweakable, and dynamic texture files that allow for runtime modification thanks to custom-built integrations. The Substance format is readable in every tool of your 3D creation workflow.
