Allegorithmic's Substance Designer in Review
Fundamentally, Substance Designer is a node-based procedural material generator. If you have used node-based material editors before, Substance Designer shouldn’t be too hard to pick up. The main difference is that material editors generate materials since all your connections end up in your global shader node, while connections in SD end in different “outputs” (textures to be used in your host application’s material editor).
