Megascans Materials DDO is the ultimate tool for utilizing the full power of the Megascans library. Mix scans to create stunning multi-layered tileables, and let scans empower your entire pipeline, from masking to PBR calibrated reflectance. DDO ships with over 1 Gigabyte of Megascans samples to get you started.
Color to Material Use color ID linking to turn your color map into base materials in just one click, redefining the way you think about color maps. DDO explodes your color map into pre-masked material groups in a matter of seconds, saving you huge amounts of time setting up your base PSD.
DDO Look Dev Texture meshes without UVs in 2.5D with the DDO Look Dev pipeline, empowering concept designers to visualize final quality in Pre-Vis. This texture pass is non-destructive and can be passed on to any 3D artist to be used on the final model. Clients without DDO can always edit the PSD and send it back hassle-free, for a fully dynamic pipeline.
NDO is the definitive normal mapping tool, that turns Photoshop into a complete normal creation toolkit. Use every tool Photoshop has to offer to sculpt normals in real-time, build non-destructive hard-surface designs, extract rich normals from photos with unrivaled definition, and instantly preview every tweak in 3D.
Hard-surface has never been faster. Create normal shapes instantly using selections, vectors and brushes, and get perfect bevels with NDO’s advanced tweaking engine. Creating hard-surface designs has never been faster, and is one of the many reasons NDO has quickly become the industry standard for normal mapping among environment artists.
Introducing Multisculpting. The new Multisculpting feature allows artists to paint jaw-dropping normals in real-time, using unlimited layers and any PS tools. Endless new possibilites open up as vectors, layer effects, filters, smudges, lattices, blend ifs, brushes, wires and so much more can be combined non-destructively to build a single normal layer.
Stunning material definition from photos. Achieve astonishing material definition while converting photos to normals using presets developed specifically for certain material types. Tweak the presets to perfectly suit your needs, or define your own from scratch. NDO’s unsurpassed algorithms gives you power to control volume and details like never before.
Super quick detailing. Add unlimited detail to your existing normal bakes without the hassle. No need to worry about rebaking, fake floaters, artifacts, or having too many subdivisions. Just add the surface detail, non-destructively, straight in Photoshop.
Instant displacements. With Quixel’s ground breaking displacement generator, you’ll see your normal map extruded in real time on any mesh without ever having to convert it to a height map. Create in 2D, see in 3D — the second you make a change.
