Substance 3D OpenGL rendering software is now free to use

Feb 02, 2015

Substance 3D is a windows based application for rendering 3D photo realistic art using OpenGL. There are five OpenGL realtime visualization modes: Point clouds + skeleton, Soft (velvet-like), Dispersive (chromatic dispersion), Plaster (Ambient occlusion) and Specular (Global illumination). For optimal efficiency, Substance 3D uses multiple CPU-cores (if available) for GUI management, Shapes modeling calculations and Photorealistic rendering. As well, Substance 3D uses High Dynamic Range images (probes) as realtime lighting environment and can import up to 32 probes in its library.
