Now faster and with new physical based materials.

Quixel’s immensely popular NDO and DDO have been completely reimagined, bringing faster texturing experiences than ever. 3DO, a new previewer included with all tools for free, throws physically based rendering into the mix. And finally; Introducing MEGASCANS, the world’s largest real-world surface scan resource.

MEGASCANS is a new breed of material library, finally bringing full real-world surface scans to the art community. Browse, preview and download 1000+ materials scanned with Quixel’s groundbreaking HDR surface capture technology and experience real diffuse, specular, normal, translucency, AO and much more.

Quixel Suite includes NDO, DDO and 3DO.


NDO is the definitive normal mapping tool that turns Photoshop into a complete normal creation toolkit. Use every tool Photoshop has to offer to sculpt normals in real-time, build non-destructive hard-surface designs, extract rich normals from photos with unrivaled definition, and instantly preview every tweak in 3D.

DDO empowers artists with tools to make better textures. DynaMask unlocks extreme masking control over ultra-real wear & tear and shape based coloration. The 100% customizable Smart Materials empowers artists with the easiest PBR workflow to date. And Fusion lets you plug DDO right into any app.

3DO is a light-weight model and material previewer directly fused with Photoshop, enabling you to review your work without needing to jump between applications. With a customizable physically based renderer, cinematic post processor and support for loading your own multi-material meshes, 3DO is the perfect texturing companion and comes bundled for free with NDO, DDO and MEGASCANS.
