This is a step-by-step tutorial on creating a fully procedural realistic aged wood material in Substance Designer. I go through the whole production phase, including preparation, initial shapes creation, detailing and finally, optimizing and rendering the final substance material in Marmoset Toolbag.
You can learn valuable methods in this tutorial that can be applied to creation of other types of materials as well.
