Get Substance Designer: Texture Creation

The Gnomon Workshop has released Substance Designer: Texture Creation, an introductory guide to Allegorithmic’s powerful node-based texturing software recorded by Naughty Dog’s Rogelio Olguin.

Everything you need to know to get started with Substance Designer
In the video, which lasts five and a half hours, Olguin introduces the basics of texture creation with Substance Designer, using the worked example of creating a cobblestone texture.

During the demonstration, Olguin explores how to create simple tools that can be combined into a final texture that can be modified or extended procedurally, enabling it to be reused easily across projects.

Although the video focuses on environment work, the techniques demonstrated can be used to create virtually any kind of texture.
