Update: Adobe Substance 3D Designer 12.2 Adds M1 Support

Adobe Substance Designer 12.2

Adobe Substance Designer 12.2 includes many new features, including native support for Apple silicon M1 chips. The update also includes some improvements for Substance model graphs and other small updates.

Below, read a segment of the release notes from Adobe Substance 3D Designer Release Notes.

Native support for Apple silicon (M1) chips

The 12.2 version of Designer is the first one with the full native support of new Apple machines based on M1 chip. Although Designer could run technically on Apple Silicon devices previously, the native support will bring you a faster and more efficient experience. As you can see on the image below, computation are up to two times faster with this new version on these machines. 

Improvements for Substance model graphs

  • Tooltips on nodes 
    It is not always possible to explain what a node is doing with just an icon and a title, that is why we have now a tooltip with a full description of the node when you are in the Library or in the Graph View. It will help you to find the node you are looking for or to better understand what are its capabilities. 
  • Shortcuts for node creation
    To speed up the creation of your most used nodes, you can now define your own shortcuts in the Preferences, like for the other types of graphs.
  • Preview node from the node contextual menu
    In our latest release, we added the possibility to preview a node in the 3D View thanks to a keyboard shortcut (SHIFT + Click on a node). This feature is now also available from the node contextual menu in order to make it more discoverable. 
  • Search based on node compatibility 
    When you are looking for a node from the node menu (accessible by pressing Spacebar in the Graph View), nodes are now correctly filtered in order to show only the ones who are compatible with the one currently selected in the graph. It helps you to find quickly the node you are looking for.
