Hello everyone,

I want to make super realistic materials and textures, and I don't know what to get; iClone's Substance Power 200 tool, Substance Live from Allegorithmic, or both.

Please help.

Both is your best bet, substance live has many many free materials and you get painter, designer and B2M 3.
Though as it stands right now you will have to jump through some hoops to get them looking as good in Iclone as they do In any of the PBR creation tools above.
Iclone right now can not handle metal and roughness textures, instead uses spec maps and a gloss slider (gray scale black to white) instead.

Not necessarily. You don't have to foot the bill for Substance Live all at one time. You can purchase it rent to own for $19.90 per month for 16 months if you don't want to outlay 299 all at one time. 
https://www.allegorithmic.com/buy

It's another alternative for those of us with thin wallets.

Getting the Software is nice, but the Substances that are available with the Substance Share will not work properly in iClone. The diffuse channel is not mapped to an output for default Substances from Allegorithmic.

The 200 pack ones are all correctly mapped for iClone.

This not a bug, but a difference between rendering engines of different Software.

So I assume from what you have just said that I should get only Substance Power 200 without the Substance Live thing, I'm I right?

Please correct me if I'm wrong and thanks for the reply

Ha NOW ..Rampa brought up a good point.

Are you wishing to make and texture your own models or do you just want to plug in some substances into Iclone ?

If you just need a texture library, then yeah.

If your goal is to learn Substance Designer, then you can probably "fix" all the ones that need it.

Urbanlamb, and a couple other people have converted some of the Substances from the Substance Share site.

So in conclusion, I don't need the Substance Live thing, but if I decided to go deeper into materials and stuff I can do it but with extra efforts to fix the difference you mentioned 

I'm I right?
