Major 3D tools join Adobe Creative Cloud

Tribal orc: Pavel Protasov

Allegorithmic, the creator of Substance and the leader in 3D editing and authoring for gaming, entertainment and post-production, has been acquired by Adobe today. The move means that Creative Cloud will now be home to the 3D design tools that made Substance the industry standard for 3D textures and material creation.

Adobe hopes that by combining Allegorithmic's tools with its own, it will empower video game creators and VFX artists working across film and television to create amazing 3D art. The decision is also a huge step for Adobe in terms of expanding the reach of Creative Cloud's 3D and immersive workflows.
