In Substance Designer, we now have the ability to render our 3d view port with the same fidelity as the progressive path trace render engines that can be found in manny DCC applications . This helps us get a higher quality render, and so a better look at our substance creations.
- [Voiceover] Whilst the 3D viewing Substance Designer…has always been a fully-featured tool,…when it comes to seeing how our substances…are shaping up and giving us a good idea…of how they will look inside a game engine,…it is true to say that since the 5.3 update,…things have gotten much better,…as we can now have a comparable experience…to rendering our substances inside a DCC application,…such as 3ds Max and Maya.…How, you may ask.…Well, the reason, simply put, was the addition…of NVIDIA's Iray render engine.…
Now, if you use Substance Designer…in a games creation pipeline,…this might not seem particularly useful as an update.…However, it is worth keeping in mind,…given the uptake of a PBR,…or physically-based rendering approach to material creation,…that Iray offers us an extremely high fidelity,…physically-based view of our substance materials,…helping us really to spot details that might be missed…when just using the default OpenGL method.…But obviously, the big improvement in workflow…would come if we already use substances…
