Went side by side w/ the bf doing things that I'd need to achieve in Substance Painter while he tried the same in Quixel 2.0 and I ran into a lot more bugs and hangups than he did (which have been driving me batty for a while), especially when baking maps.

End result? I plonked down the cash for the indie license while it's on sale.

I've not been able to afford either of them yet. They do look interesting though...

For the daz/poserverse I'd honestly say go for Quixel first if you plan on getting both. It has some features that substance lacks that makes things a bit easier and less annoying. Substance's map exports were hideous in my tests and Quixel's came out nice and clean as expected.

That's a fairly decent sale price, but it requires PS CS3 and I'm using PS CS2, and I don't have an nVidia GPU on this laptop, so not sure I could use it. Maybe if they had a trial download, even a restricted one where you can't save, would at least give me an idea whether or not it would work for me.

Nice to know...I take it from Miss B's post it's actually on sale at the moment.

Edited to add that is a good price. I have birthday money coming up shortly I will have to download and try it...

Just a heads up, I'm not sure how long the sale will run for. I know it's a holday/xmas sale though.

That's the problem for me Pen, I can't find a trial version to download. Some software manufacturers don't do that.

Ohhhhh, I didn't realize you could even download it w/o paying for it. I'll have to go back and check that out.

I'm downloading it at the moment...it does look useful. I just finished watching the video on the download page. I'll just have to hope it lasts a little while longer. Fingers crossed...

There are actually a couple vids regarding prepping things from Blender, so these guys understand not everyone uses the high end stuff. There are 2 videos, still waiting on the 3rd, which is supposed to be setting the maps up in Blender for cycles.
