In this Substance Designer and Unity 5 tutorial we'll learn how to create physically based shaders (PBS) for Unity 5.Additionally, we'll look at what it takes to create a PBS materials and how to author the necessary textures for them. We'll start by using props created originally for Camouflaj's Republique and talk about the differences of how to author materials using Metal-Gloss vs. Specular-Gloss workflows. Along the way we'll use 3ds Max along with Headus to lay out our UVs followed by authoring our PBS's in Substance Designer. By the end of this Substance Designer training you'll have a solid understanding of the workflows that are required to create content using Physically Based Shading. Software required: 3ds Max 2015, Substance Designer, Substance Painter, Bitmap2Material 3.0, Headus UVLayout, Unity 5.
