Substance Suite now subscription only

Recommended Posts

If you haven't heard about it, Adobe / Allegorithmic removed the ability to buy a perpetual license of the Substance softwares from their website. It is now subscription only.

 

It didn't even take them a year to get rid of perpetual. So that's what they call "not for the foreseeable future". I'm not really surprised this happened, but I'm still disappointed. Perpetual is still available via Steam, but I highly doubt that this will stay up for long.

 

As by their forum announcement here's a couple of details:

 

  • Starting November 2019, Substance Alchemist will be officially launched at the end of its beta-phase, and automatically added to your Substance subscription at no additional cost. Furthermore, perpetual licenses will not be sold through our substance3D.com website anymore. However, you will be able to renew your maintenance until October 31, 2020.
  • Pricing remains the same for the Substance Indie monthly subscription and Substance Pro subscription. Indie annual subscription price will decrease starting November 2019, from $239 to $219.
  • Starting November 2019, perpetual licenses will not be sold through the substance3D.com website anymore. You can still purchase perpetual Indie licenses for Substance Painter and Substance Designer through Steam.

 

Further details here.

    Naw, they can't do that. Plenty of software and games got removed from Steam but once bought it will remain in your account, unless it's malware or something of course. The bigger problem is that you can't buy Maintenance for more than a year anymore so after that you're stuck with whatever version you have at that point and if you want something newer you need to subscribe. Oh and yeah, Alchemist is also not available on Steam so if you want that... tough luck.

    Lets just hope that by the time a maintenance purchased in Oct 2020 will cover the point at which Substance painter can compete with Mari a little closer.  The next upgrade should see proper UDIM support painting across  texture sets, then we need paint through projection painting with a nudge tool of some kind.  A 8k viewport feedback,  that may be asking too much by 2021.

     

    I twas obvious it would go perpetual, the wording on the forum to me indicated it long ago.

  • Yeah well I think everybody knew it was coming sooner than later but I honestly did not expect it in less than a year.

    So if you have a subscription active, you can still convert to perpetual now, or up until November 2020. 

     

    My subscription ends on 24th November. Black Friday this year is 29th November, so it looks like I will have to renew my subscription at full price on the 24th and then grind my teeth when they drop the price a few days later. Or lose my option to go perpetual.

    What I just read in my emails, Quixel joined to Epic, Mixer and Bridge will be free forever, Megascans unlimited for Mixer, Bridge and Unreal Engine users...

    And Quixel is IMHO strong rival for Substance, especially in creating realistic procedural textures...

     

    btw, anytime I go to allegorithmic site, always type into google search field word "Allegorithmic" but I´m driven to Substance by Adobe...

    No any word about Allegorithmic...it´s vanished
