Adobe purchases Allegorithmic, makers of Substance Painter

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Allegorithmic announced earlier that they've been purchased by Adobe to join the family alongside Mixamo and Macromedia
Blog post detailing the purchase
This seems to have happened around the same time that Foundry has taken their site down for "maintenance" with speculation in the content creators community that foundry is the next company to be bought out, potentially by Autodesk.
Substance Painter is an application used in various industries for the creation of textures for 3d models.

Omfg no... I rely so heavily on Substance Painter and was really looking forward to newer versions. 100% it's going to become a subscription service... At the moment you get free updates for an entire year when you buy a perpetual license.

Buy painter now whilst you can because knowing Adobe, they'll be removing that perpetual license asap.
I plan to get it on Steam when I can, I still have my old 2016 license so I'm not entirely lost on it.

 

Why pay 150 USD once when you can pay 60 dollars a month forever? 

The latter is clearly the better deal (for Adobe).

That there is why I spent a bit extra and got Office 2019 for this tablet. It saves money in the long term, and I don't use/need or want the cloud integration of the subscription version. Plus having subscriptions = reduction in ability to accurately keep track of spending.

EDIT: btw here's what people closer to game dev have to say:

https://polycount.com/discussion/208173/adobe-acquires-allegorithmic-makers-of-substance-painter-designer

 

EDITx2: currently the main "valid" (well, quote marks for safety) concern would be the kind of reach (it's highly used in designing stuff for UE and Unity and basically everything 3D) and what Adobe might do to strongarm them to doing

As I understand it, Adobe parted out Mixamo to create Fuse CC (and then made the last version of Mixamo free-with-Adobe-ID)

Spoiler

also 90% of the comments be like

We understand your apprehension but a lot of it is straight speculation and conspiration theories.

 

We've worked with the Adobe guys for years now, we know the people and the company very well and we, as a company, decided to join them, it was never an obligation or a necessity, and everybody here is on board and very enthusiastic. We did so because what we plan on building together is much bigger and more interesting than what we could build by ourselves.

 

Adobe knows the value of Allegorithmic lies in its relationship to its community, its affordability and its agility. The last thing they want is to try to fix something that ain't broken. We ask that you judge us on our actions this coming year and not on some made up corporate hell fantasy.

We won't disappoint.

we'll see.

studios who can afford to (or studios with a budget) ._.

If that's the only Adobe program you'll use, buy it now lol and there's a chance that Adobe will honor certain licenses with updates, but maybe not if they rename it as Adobe Texture or something like that and put it in CC lol.

 

And just wait, 6 months from now it's gonna be $80 a month to "make up" for this acquisition

I'm lucky, this year Adobe changed their policy and since I'm in school, rather than to pay per-computer, the college pays per-head

 

Aka I have my own account I can use at home. But that's just from now.

 

And Adobe is so important in my field, I have to use it. And I wouldn't dare make profit off pirated software, that's wrong and can get you in court.
