Thanks for the share @simonschreibt, looks like these patters are interesting to people, I had more then 800 downloads.

So, I’ll try to find time and do some more :wink:

@AlexFedorov posted in his channel nice substance networks :slight_smile:

A friend of mine has used substance to approach some VFX stuff check it out here.

Thanks for the share! ^^ I used Substance Designer for most of the VFX in my portfolio and it was great fun. I made a way of animating my substance and automating a spritesheet all in designer. Awesome tool for VFX! :smiley:

Awesome! The networks look huge :smiley: I wonder if there’s a way to automate substance…like having a for-loop and iterating over the same nodes again and again changing some parameters a bit to avoid having the same little network with slight modifications 100x in the file?


#47

There was a way to animate using time within substance player but it was of no help to me making flipbooks, designer couldnt be animated in the same manner so I made do with shifting paremeters like transform and noise disorder. The good thing about it is that both of those things loop :smiley:

Looks realy great. Can you please tell what is your settings for Splater Circular? I spent a whole day and couldn’t replicate this pattern.

I’m not able to open substance right now but in here you should find my fire + settings:

I use Substance Designer to create textures 90% of the time!

Lately I’ve been trying Filter Forge as well but when it comes to a node-based tool, ease of use and UX (how easy/fast/practical you’re able to connect nodes and build complicated schematics) is king for me. So I guess SD will be my go-to tool for procedural texture creation.

What is Bruno tools? I tried googling this and did not find it. Maybe I haven’t read enough of this thread…


#52

It’s his stuff on Gumroad I exspect. (He links to it in the 5th post of this topic) :slight_smile:


#53

Sorry. I started very far down in this thread. I appreciate your response.

I’m a big Filter Forge Fan…But I can see how Substance Designer has surpassed it. I think I like the FF interface a bit better…but maybe because it isn’t so clouded with all those features! :smiley:

here aswell but I suppose the gumroad is more up to date ? @Bruno


#55

Here’s my gumroad: https://gumroad.com/3dbruno
Usually it’s more up to date because it takes Allegorithmic some time to approve content, but right now they’re the same. An update to those tools is long overdue though :stuck_out_tongue:

I missed Zoom Blur from Photoshop in Substance Designer, so I made one. Hope it will come in handy!


#57
