  1. OpengCL and AMD Pro Render support

    Substance has support for NVidia gfx ards and also IRay. Substance should support OpenCL and Implements Pro Render so AMD gfx users can use their gpu compute power with Painter and Designer.

  2. Display Blend Node Mode in Icon and Add Node Function Icon

    I have a couple of simple UI suggestions to increase readability of graphs which will help beginners and also more experienced users alike:

    1 Display Blending mode in title of Blend node icon

    2 Add a function icon marker to the top right of every node that uses a function. When clicked directly on this icon it should be able to open the function editor of that node (intercept with a pop up dialogue box to choose which function to open if there are more than one)

    See Mock up Pictures in forum thread https://forum.substance3d.com/index.php/topic,35478.0.html

  3. Save UI interface option

    It would be very useful to be able to save your interface layouts. I move around my screens quite often depending on what I am doing and to rearrange my UI constantly is a pain.

  4. Format XML for better VCS/Git use

    Substance designer stores its SBS files in an XML format. But it's all one long unbroken line. If you store the SBS files in version control (e.g. Git) it makes diffs pretty useless. But if it just had some line breaks/indentation (pretty printing on XML export) it would be much easier to see what had been changed.

  5. Texture export does not detect write protected files

    When texture files are locked by a versioning software like Perforce they cannot be overwritten. But even so Substance Designer reports "Export done" as if they were successfully overwritten. Would be better with a proper warning that the files were locked.

  6. image following a curve path

    Substance Designer does not have the function of image following a curve path, these functions are often used, but Substance Designer does not have these functions

  7. liquefaction/deformation path

    Can you set the liquefaction/deformation path for the liquefaction/deformation texture? These paths can easily handle some complex effects. Now it is too troublesome to do liquefaction/deformation. A lot of deformation nodes are set, which wastes a lot of time.

  8. A large number of random curves with freely set radians cannot be generated

    A large number of random curves with freely set radians cannot be generated, and all nodes can only generate straight lines or chaotic lines. Without a large number of randomly curved curves, it is difficult to simulate the effect of the real world

  9. Support for Matrix3*3, 4*4, quaterion.

    Pixel processor allows user to make filters with rendering technique. However Substance does not support matrix 33 and 44 at substance graph area. (Not MDL).

  10. Blender style unlink node with Ctrl+ stroke across the link

    Blender nodes are quite convenient imo with wacom pen

    .Shift+stroke across several links makes reroute dot node.

    M to bypass node

    Nodes being auto connecting

    But main thing I miss in SD is an ability to quickly drop a link with just a stroke accorss it.

  11. Allow multiple instances of substance designer running at the same time

    It would be great to be able to run multiple instances of Designer at (bonus: being able to copy / paste nodes between them)

    e.g. I have a texture export running that takes 30 mins (many UDIMs) and at the same time I could open a second instance to continue to work

  12. Toggle through / cycle / solo channels in 3d viewer

    It would be great to have shortcuts in 3d viewer to toggle between different channels (like in Substance Painter), baseColor, metalness, roughness etc. to see what every channel is doing without any lighting / reflection etc., just flat color information.

    Thanks!

  13. Repeat Last Command as a keyboard shortcut

    Not sure if this is grouped under launcher.

    Say I want to "align selected nodes vertically". Can I select then push say G or something to repeat the same previous function without having to click the button again

    like the G of Maya

  14. Relative file link system.

    Substance Designer has file link system based on absolute path. This is quite annoying sometimes. For instance, moving .SBS file from one PC to others, mesh mapping, etc.
    If SD allows user to use relative path, it will give users great experiences.

  15. Bitmap Image resize

    Currently when I import bitmap into my graph, the resizing happens with two options for stretching. Smooth stretch and Nearest stretch. If there is a way to preserve the image size but then fill rest of the pixels with a choice of gray scale values, it would help preserve the pixel proportions for non square image size input.

  16. right click and UI

    I like how pressing space bar in graph window allows for searching nodes immediately. It would be convenient if the same search be made available upon right clicking. Currently it gives Add Node option and it requires for me to move mouse to pick what I need. This would further align with other software in similar workflow such as DynamoBim. Just a thought.

  17. Inject EXIF/Metadata on Output nodes/images

    Had that "Crazy" idea this morning... Why not create a node or a way that simply inject METADATA (EXIT) on output images... That way we could identify an image as a BaseColour, Normal, Height, Without caring about it's naming. And i could write a "smart" script on my 3D Software that reads metadata from image and auto-connect then to the correct slots on a PBR material...

     Is this too crazy ? lol I just want to put the "bots" to work for me. Just checked and Substance Designer don't handle metadata... 
    
    That could be crazy if it works !

  18. Option to Disable windows Auto Dock on preferences (or per window)

    Substance Designer.
    I always work with the 3D View floating and HUGE, and it's very ODD, everytime o move it around and it wants to dock everywhere into Substance Designer screen. It's amazing to have the Dock Option, but it's odd when you don't want it to dock. :)

  19. Random Position on Both Axis (Tile Sampler)

    Could we have a random position slider for both X and Y on each tile sampler?

  20. Colour code exposed variable

    In Substance designer would be cool if you can colour code exposed variables to easily see where they belong.
