Allegorithmic is offering a “rent-to-own” plan for Substance Live. U users can now get the complete Substance toolset for US$19.90 a month with no feature limitation.
Each payment goes towards a full license and the plan can be paused at any time. The latest versions of Substance Designer 5, Substance Painter 1.3 and Bitmap2Materials 3 can be purchased individually or as part of a full set. Substance Live will also give users access to special offers, exclusive services and beta builds, even after they’ve paid off their license.
As the months go on, payment status as well as new product updates will be available on the Substance Live dashboard, accessible anywhere there’s a browser. Bigger payments can be made at any time, so artists always have the freedom to treat their account as they wish, says Dr. Sébastien Deguy, founder and CEO of Allegorithmic.
Substance Live is available now and can be accessed on allegorithmic.com, Steam or the Unity asset store. The indie license is $19.90/month for 16 months, while the pro version is $64.90. Indies can also pay an upfront cost of $299 for the complete Substance toolset.
