The wait is over, Substance Bonus Tools for Maya 2012 are finally here!
This Bonus Tools ship with 25 free Substances, including:
Thanks to the Bonus Tools, Maya users have now the ability to render Substance smart textures with the mentalRay renderer without baking outputs to bitmaps. The Bonus Tools ships with a set of scripts that will allow you to automatically wire a mentalRay shader network or convert an existing Substance shader network.
The Bonus Tools is also shipping with a second set of scripts that make the Substance node connectable to a file node within Hypershade. Game developers now have the ability to use Substance Materials with their own cgFX shaders.
And that's not finished!
We are delighted to announce that our good friends from Chaos Group have recently released Vray2.0 for Maya which is now fully compatible with Substance smart textures. Maya users can now use and tweak Substances with the interactive rendering and adjust the look of their material interactively within Maya's Render View.
Finally, please check the following videos on our Learning Area to see some of the creative possibilities offered by Substance Bonus Tools in Maya 2012.
