What’s new in Substance 3D Painter?

New 3D Warp Projection Mode

With the new 3D warp projection mode, you can warp any material or image around any geometry – in a completely non-destructive way. This cool feature is a lifesaver if you want to match a decal to a model, a scar to a leg, or a scanned face to a character model.

New Cylindrical Projection Mode

Adobe has taken the opportunity to add even more to the diversity of projection modes, with the arrival of a cylindrical projection mode! This projection mode is useful for cases such as wrapping decals or material around cylindrical shapes like bottles, or applying sleeve tattoos to arms.

Adobe also focused on some foundational work that is the groundwork for upcoming updates focusing on color management. As a first step in this direction, they have an improved color picker, which – among other updated functionalities – allows you to save color swatches internally. Other highlights include the ability to choose between float and integer (0-255) values, as well as between a linear or sRGB display. The color picker will also stay open while you are painting on the same layer, allowing you to pick new colors quickly or swap between swatches without interrupting your painting.
