The update introduces support for triplanar projection, the option to export materials in the MDL format, a new material showcase sample scene, and more.
The triplanar texture projection support allows applying materials to objects without relying on UV systems. The material is projected onto the surface of the model from three planes, which adds a new way of applying materials and supports physical units for materials like fabrics that should maintain a real-world appearance across objects.
Another addition is a material showcase sample scene, which allows quickly sending your materials from Sampler and Designer into Stager to present them fully set up, with the right lighting and displacement.
You can now also export materials in the MDL format so Substance 3D materials are baked at their current parameters. This function works both for selections of materials and objects, the materials will be exported if objects are selected. Support for the SBSAR format is planned to be released in the future.
Other changes include the ability to map multiple textures at once, hide the interface to use Stager in a presentation mode, and filter the scene panel.
You can buy Substance 3D Stager for $149.99 or subscribe to Adobe’s Substance 3D Collection, which costs $49.99/month or $549.88/year for an individual license.
