Substance Painter is a 3D painting software allowing you to texture, render and share your work.

What's new in version 2.2?

New Feature: Material Layering

We referred to Material Layering in a previous blogpost, and it's now available as a full-fledged feature. With Material Layering, you can now visualize complex shaders on your asset directly in Substance Painter for highly accurate views of in-engine results and extreme material definition!

With a few simple tags inserted in the shader, Substance Painter automatically generates a custom user interface for easy material blending and mask painting.

The resulting masks are automatically exported along with a description file of which materials were blended and how, making them readable by any engine and coverted into working materials.


Shelf Search

The first step in our shelf makeover is a new way to search for assets in the shelf and in the mini-shelves. A comprehensive list of tags along with a fuzzy search algorithm makes finding the right asset much easier across the board. A lot of other shelf improvements are underway for the next few releases.

Projection preview

You can now choose which channel is used for the projection overlay, allowing you to visualize the most useful channel when projecting decals or skin details, for example.

Bakers scripting

The scripting API has been expanded to allow scripting of the baking process, taking Substance Painter a step closer to being fully automatable.
