    And here is a video tutorial on how to use the Substance plug-in for 3dsMax which I found very interesting:

    Isn't life just full of 'coincidences'

    So, I have a job where the client is searching for the sort of 'bottle end' or 'crown glass' circles set in lead cames to create glazed screens in a Victorian house remodelling.

    I am looking for materials for this job as he wants interior renderings and so am browsing the Substance Source website. Looking at the leaded lights material from the Medieval set I notice an option to make circular leaded lights. Download the .sbsar file, open it in Substance Player and play about with the sliders (see attached). It creates just what I am looking for at pretty much any size and variation. Incredibly clever of the person who designed this material.

    nice, I would be interested to see what it looks like in a finished render in its environment, when you get it done...

    I'll see how it works out but I should have some images in the next few days.

    Oh no! was my first reaction.

    The Substance team are now part of Adobe apparently:

    Looks like people are not that happy with them 'moving' to Adobe.

    I may be doing Adobe a disservice but I've always thought that 'Dilbert' (the cartoon character by Scott Adams) worked at Adobe

    I remember when Autodesk bought ECOTECT, it used to be a good analysis software, today It doesn't exist anymore!

    Unfortunately/fortunately* it’s every software developers dream, to develop something that no one has, get a large customer base and then sell it for £XXX millions so that you have the resources to ‘do what you really want to’ with the software.
    Unfortunately, normally, that means doing 'what you want' elsewhere.
    These large firms are experts at generating revenue for their shareholders and no good at innovation otherwise they’d be developing these new technologies themselves.
    Case in point: everything that AD has bought** has stopped being developed the moment they’ve bought it, and all its potential is lost as soon as the original team move on, just look at FormIt.
    Just the other day I was looking up the perpetual licence for substance that was described in this thread which, after the news of the purchase by Adobe, I think is worth now about as much as a Weimar Mark was in 1923 !

    *Well if this wasn't the case, then there wouldn't be any incentive for innovation, would there ?
    **Except for Revit (?), so should be qualified with 'bought recently' ?
