Adobe's acquisition of Allegorithmic means that the Substance tools are coming soon to a Creative Cloud near you. Allegorithmic says that they're honoring the current subscriptions and licenses so that's really good for current users. But we're still waiting on details of how exactly the integration will work. Will they still offer perpetual licenses?
I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the move. I mean, this is great news for studios who are already subscribed to the cloud and Substance. This potentially consolidates their fees into one. I just don't know.
Anyway, here are my thoughts and a very primitive explanation of what
Substance can do.
