New features

  • Photoshop brushes are now natively supported in Substance Painter Time to dust off your ABR brush libraries. You can download them from Adobe - it has thousands of pre-made brushes available for Photoshop subscribers. You don’t have a subscription but you’re still itching to get your hands on the brushes? This new version of Substance Painter ships around 100 ABR brush presets.


  • New possibilities with expanded brush settings - To allow you to make the most of the ABR brush, developers take brush engine further. These expanded settings will increase with time; this first iteration has a large batch of settings such as Minimum Size, Minimum Flow, Roundness, and more.



  • Introducing a new opacity blending mode - With the new opacity blending setting, choose between the legacy opacity blending and a new Max blending mode. This means you can easily mimic what you would expect from painting in Photoshop.
  • A leap forward for tablet users - Your painting experience is, in general, much better. One of the improvements concerns smoother strokes: when working with a pen or stylus, the pressure sensitivity has a smoother curve.
  • Improved brush preview  - Sometimes the alpha of a brush was in the way when trying to paint intricate details or precise strokes. You can now opt for a light brush preview, clearing the view at the center of the stamp. 
  • Unwrapping is tedious, it adds no artistic value to the asset, and it can take what seems like forever. Today you can finally unwrap your models inside Substance Painter. Enter Automatic UV Unwrapping, available in beta in this new update. This tool automatically seams, unwraps and packs UVs for you if you import a 3D model that has no UV coordinates.




  • Smooth curves with the new Paint Roller stroke - A long-requested feature was the ability to have an alpha, pattern or material follow smoothly along curves and strokes. The Paint Roller is here to answer your needs for stitches, trims, folds, pipes and all other sorts of curvy apparatus.
  • New filters and dynamic brushes
  • Transform any photo into an oil painting
