Quixel Mixer beta is now free for a year
Quixel has announced that Mixer, its PBR texture editing software, is now available free of charge during its beta period – expected to last at least a year. Mixer allows the user to create PBR materials by combining scanned textures, but has grown more powerful recently as it evolves into a more general purpose texturing tool. In a recent blog post, Quixel describes the intention behind the development of Mixer to create a standalone home for their Photoshop plugins NDO and DDO, that latter of which was considered at one point a competitor to Substance Painter.
Until now, Mixer has been available only as part of a Megascans subscription, but Quixel has also announced that once the free beta period is over it will be available under a perpetual licensing scheme for $99. It will also continue as part of a Megascans subscription.
