The fashion artist’s essentials

Designed for your workflow

Substance 3D integrates in your existing workflow: textures and fabrics created with Substance work in every app you use.

Substance materials are natively supported in CLO, Marvelous Designer, VStitcher by Browzwear, Modaris 3D by Lectra, Vidya by Assyst, Blender, Cinema4D by Maxon, 3ds Max and Maya by Autodesk, and more.

Connect with Illustrator and Photoshop

Use Substance materials in Illustrator and Photoshop; import SVG files into Sampler; edit your files in Illustrator and Sampler will instantly update your pattern materials based on the new SVG; or edit your Sampler materials and your Stager render in Photoshop for post-production.

Substance is uniquely connected with Creative Cloud: Browse Substance 3D Assets directly in CC Desktop; manage Substance 3D materials in Adobe Bridge and send them to Stager or Designer.

From real to 3D

Create digital twins from pictures or scans without losing any information.

Digitize your materials with Substance 3D: set the size of your material, keep its physical size ratio, work with nonsquare scans and samples, add custom metadata.

Simple to use

Start with pictures or any existing resources from the Substance 3D asset library in Substance 3D Sampler. Create amazing embroidered patch or real cloth woven materials with our filters and tools.

Your material creation is smoother with direct links to Photoshop and Illustrator.

Next level of realism

Apply materials in Painter. Combine brushes, decals, and Smart Materials to produce a high level of detail and true-to-life visualization for an unprecedented level of realism.

Bring your clothes to life with washing effects, cuts, and shreddings… And always keep your creative control.

Powerful Tools and Generators

The Cloth Weave filter is one of the many tools that will help you create the perfect fabric, no matter how complex the stitches.

You can work with predefined patterns or create your own simply by painting the warps and wefts. Play with colors, create multilayer fabrics, explore new patterns: make fabulous weaves!

They use Substance

Visualization is one of the keys for success in accelerating decision making, strengthening the link with creative direction and reducing our time-to-market by validating the product in the marketing touch points. The Adobe Substance tools allow us to reinforce the user experience, offer us a lot of flexibility and a reduced adoption time for the designers by importing digital assets from other tools.
