New features include a game changing AI-powered scan workflow tool that turns photographic data into usable material; recent updates to Substance Designer included Substance Engine V8 for improved workflow and performance.

Adobe has released new features to Substance Alchemist, introducing new content and workflows for 3D artists to create complex materials with precise control. It provides users the ability to create vast collections of materials, whether working from data provided by existing photos or other images, or by modifying existing 3D resources. It grants users essentially limitless power to digitize the world. The new release provides more content, improved features, and an increase in results and efficiency overall.

The new release of Substance Alchemist includes:
