Create physically based materials with a library of 100 texture-nodes and bakers (that will only grow). Alter textures in a snap and export your work ready to use in your game engine or 3d suite of choice.

SprueTex is a powerful texture creation tool designed to be easy to discover and work with. Mesh-baking nodes make it a snap to texture your creatures and characters and with the command-line interface it's easy to tie into your content pipeline for automation.

Accessible

In application "Quick Guide" helps you learn the program at your own pace and the order you want. The in application manual fills out the rest and includes visual examples of what the properties of the nodes do.

Permute to win

SprueTex uses a system called permutations that allows you to create variable versions of the same node and give them arbitrary names, weights, and tags. Want to output a "sharp" and "craggy" version of your texture ... can do!

No limits

The only limit on texture sizes is what your machine can handle and how long you're willing to wait. Separate preview and export quality settings allow you to work fast and export to high resolution when you're ready. SprueTex also provides the means to constrain large portions of your graphs that don't require high resolution to lower resolutions.

SprueTex v1.2 will feature a headless IPC mode so you'll be able to send your exports off to a dedicated server to process.

Stay in Control

Reporting features allow you to manage the volume of textures that go into any size project. Batch hundreds of texture up into a Visual Overview report and you can easily review all of your material for stylistic consistency.

System Requirements

  • 64-bit Windows only
  • MSVC2015 Runtime
  • .NET 4.5 Runtime
  • GPU or CPU MUST support OpenCL 1.2
  • Windows 7, 8.1, or 10
  • Intel HD4000 or better GPU
  • Hyper-thread dual-core CPU, quad-core CPU, or better
    • SprueTex will happily eat an octa-core for breakfast, but when multitasking is more important you can configure it to use fewer cores
  • The lowest passing specifications are equivalent to a Surface Pro 1st-gen.

Update Schedule

SprueTex may as well be "forever in beta" in addition to new features, bug-fixes and revisions of program behaviour should be expected. The planned release schedule only represents new features.

  • Incremental content updates
    • New template/example textures will be added regularly outside of version updates and bug-fixes
    • Video tutorials
    • A texture repository is in the works
  • v1.2 (est. Jan 1st, 2018)

Integrations and Sublicensing

SprueTex can be executed through the command-line both for generating texture outputs and reports - thus it can easily be integrated into your workflow via your platform's process-start and console pipe features.

An official Unity integration is underway using the recent experimental asset importing expansion in Unity 2017.

The underlying backend of SprueTex is available in both C++/11 and C# under a separate license for parties that are interested in licensing it.
