Adobe substance is our specialty

Adobe Substance Integration Support

Magnetic Mobile has been working with 3D tool sets for over a decade. As 3D software has evolved so have the processes and workflows needed to create high-fidelity and fast-loading assets that can be used across a variety of channels including: websites, headsets, and mobile apps. We have taken our experience and our knowledge of the last decade along with the knowledge of our sister company, Marxent/3D Cloud, and we are now working with Adobe to build out better and more efficient 3D workflows for emerging and established enterprise teams who are focusing on 3D operational scale. 

Our experience, our knowledge, and our work with our own enterprise clients has made Magnetic Mobile THE experts in not only scaling 3D assets but in using the best practices available to make your products shine in 3D – in the most efficient manner possible. Magnetic Mobile combines the best software platforms with the best processes in order to help enterprise-level companies develop and/or refine their own 3D product vision workflows.

Introducing Adobe Substance 3D - Designer and Painter

The Adobe Substance Suite of software exists to streamline the creation of 3D Assets to cater to your exact needs.

In broad strokes, the pipeline of 3D asset creation comes down to 2 major parts:

  • Modelingthe process of creating the geometry that makes up the shape of the model
  • Texturing the process of defining how the model responds to light using 2D images, whose patterns dictate the placement of color, reflectivity, and more on the 3D model.
 

The Adobe Substance Suite has a history of specializing in the modeling and texturing process of the 3D asset pipeline. Even within that specialization there exists multiple Adobe Substance Software, named Adobe Substance 3D Designer and Adobe Substance 3D Painter, which provides users with tools that make it easier than ever to author textures and materials for 3D models created in other software packages.

Adobe Substance Glossary

Adobe Substance Designer's Power

Adobe Substance 3D Designer provides the user with a method of crafting procedural materials for their 3D model. Texturing Artists can manipulate the material using nodes that connect to each other, forming a network where the earliest nodes in the chain have an effect on all the way down to the final material output. This grants the user precise, manual control in addition to freedom to make changes all the way back to the first nodes they added.

OPTIMIZE YOUR WORKFLOWS AND ADD OPERATIONAL 3D SCALE EFFICIENCY

  • Node-Based Visual Coding System: Plugging nodes into each other is an easy process to pick up, but provides the user with plenty of input for a plethora of creative 
  • Nondestructive Workflow: Any Added Node can be Manipulated At Any Point in Time, affecting the Chain of Nodes Connecting to it.
  • Author Tileable Materials for Reuse for production at scale for models that share the same material.
  • Send and Use Materials in other Substance Apps for a seamless workflow within the same ecosystem.
  • Give Materials Procedural Attributes using rules defined by the user with advanced implementation of node networks.
  • Coding Languages
  • Custom APIs

Adobe Substance Painter's Power

Adobe Substance 3D Painter excels at crafting curated texture sets directly on the user’s 3D model. Texturing Artists can easily paint materials in strokes like a painter would on a canvas. There are also plenty of tools for quickly coating the model with high quality, user defined materials. Overall, Adobe Substance 3D Painter makes it easy for texturing artists to visualize and optimize the textures for their 3D model.

OPTIMIZE YOUR WORKFLOWS AND ADD OPERATIONAL 3D SCALE EFFICIENCY

  • Work in brush layers that make it easy to paint complex materials in strokes directly onto the model.
  • Quickly coat your model with robust user defined parameters using fill layers.
  • Visualize your model in real-time environments with lighting and rendering comparable to the final intended experience.
  • Minimize human error and optimize files for specific rendering engines using robust, configurable export settings.
  • Enhance your workflow with a variety of tools in the form of filters, generators, and precise masking options.
  • Bake high-poly details to low-poly models to optimize your files for real-time rendering.

About Magnetic's 3D Experience

Culver's & Pepsi AR Game
Culver’s created an AR experience in 2016, which included a sweater try-on-and-share promotion using a trackable on a specially designed co-branded cup by Pepsi and Culver’s, and an AR puzzle game that allowed users to build a virtual puzzle. The design was provided but Magnetic developed all the code using Vuforia, an early platform designed for Augmented Reality experiences.
Lay-Z-Boy AR Furniture App for iOS & Android
We focused much of our development resources helping our sister company, Marxent, develop a white-label native app solution to host their proprietary AR technology and 3D Cloud content management system. We created an app wrapper that could be integrated within the retailers’ website to launch AR furniture AR experience. These experiences leverage the great technology API Marxent had created and also allowed the retailer to send in-app and push messages to customers with deep links into the AR experiences.

Enterprise 3D Creators Since 2012

Magnetic Mobile has been working with 3D pipelines, custom AR experiences, and 3D processes for over a decade. In 2013, Magnetic – then still a part of Marxent – was the FIRST company to introduce the world to AR retail games in the convenience industry. This groundbreaking trend that we started is still on-going, today. 

Since our first foray into 3D and AR, both Magnetic Mobile and our sister company, 3D Cloud – Marxent, which was founded by the same two brothers, have been creating and utilizing technology which allows billion-dollar, enterprise-level companies to enable their own 3D vision for their products.
