Melting Snow | Substance Designer Tutorial

Learn how I built my snow material with exposed parameters for melt amount, enabling snow to melt naturally into water. This material is a part of my Signature Series collaboration with Allegorithmic.

Use this tutorial as a detailed step by step guide for how to recreate my Melting Snow from scratch.

This tutorial follows a walkthrough format, where I go through how I built each of the components in the graph including:

  • Base Shapes
  • Shape manipulation
  • Snow, Crystals, and Clumps
  • Melt Water and Slush
  • Setting up Melt Parameters
  • Diffuse, Normals, AO, and Roughness.

    • Skill Level

      Intermediate Level, you should be familiar with the basic nodes and workflows in Substance Designer.

      Contents

      • 40+ minutes walkthrough covering the entire graph from start to finish.
      • 1080 Resolution
      • Non-directional warp node (credit to Evan Liaw and Bradford Smith) and my simple preview node are included

        • License

          Personal and Commercial Licenses are available. Personal licenses do NOT apply to companies
