Get started with Substance Designer, the node-based texturing tool for creating high-quality, procedural textures and materials.
- [Voiceover] Hello everyone and welcome to Up & Running with Substance Designer brought to you by lynda.com. My name is Joel Bradley and I am really excited to be able to share this first of a number of Substance Designer based courses with you. The idea of this course is to introduce you to the extensive range of tools that Substance Designer makes available for the generation of extremely high quality, procedurally based textures and materials. To get things moving, we will take some time to become familiar with the basic concept of Substances in general.
So what they are, and how they work. As well as getting to grips with the typical work flow involved in the creation of a Substance. We will then dive right in as it were, and start to create our own aged concrete substance. The idea being to use the creation of a finished Substance file and its corresponding Substance package as a way of becoming familiar with the myriad tools and options that Substance Designer brings to the table. The focus here, leaning very heavily towards the use of tools, that we will probably need to use on a pretty much day-to-day basis.
As we have lots of fun stuff ahead, let's go and make a start on our Up & Running with Substance Designer course.
