I've found summer sales for Marvelous Designer which is normally $500 for perpetual license. It is now ~$250 on steam sale for slightly less perpetual... perpetual license. In that you get to keep the software but you don't receive major updates. There is also a sale on Substance Painter and Designer. I've been out of the loop for a while on Mixer and Painter so I was wondering what exactly is the difference between Mixer and Painter? Am I justified in purchasing Painter even if I'm going to use Mixer? Also there are a lot of good looking cloth add ons for Blender? Does Marvelous Designer have some stregnths that justify the price tag if I'm using it for game development?
Thank you for your reply!
