Substance Painter

All the tools you need to texture your 3D assets in one application.

Substance Painter has smart materials, smart masks and integrated bakers, and a state of the art real-time viewport.

Your painting habits, now in 3D

If you’ve ever used Photoshop, you’ll feel at home with Substance Painter.

Take your skill beyond the 2D canvas and expand your artistic possibilities. Breathe life into your art with Substance Painter.

Tech that augments your art

You can use smart materials that adjust to any object to show realistic wear and tear; explore mask presets that adapt to any shape, and paint with brushes you can modify on the fly.

Immersive texturing

When you paint, the viewport shows all your artistic decisions in real-time.

Move around your asset as much as you like, undock windows to create the best workspace for you, and enjoy an immersive texturing experience.

Try everything, lose nothing

Substance Painter’s workflow is non-destructive. You can experiment as much as you like, then jump back to previous stages if you don’t love what you create. You can always find your way back.

They use Substance

We used Substance Designer to create almost all of our tileable textures. […] Almost every environment art asset in Forza Horizon 4 had some part of it run through Substance Designer or Substance Painter.

Substance improved our texturing workflow by allowing us to see a ‘closer to final’ result in the viewport and to help eliminate any values that were incorrect through a PBR workflow.

It’s important in advertising to work fast and to a very high standard, and Substance is the perfect helper here. It’s definitely a package that should be in any texture artist’s toolkit

Substance definitely helped us to achieve such a high-quality look very quickly, as well as giving us the ability to adjust to a new art direction if necessary.
