Adobe Substance 3D Painter overview

Substance 3D Painter has the tools you need to texture your 3D assets, from advanced brushes to Smart Materials that automatically adapt to your model. Breathe life into your art.

  • The industry standard. Substance 3D Painter is widely used in game and movie production as well as in product design, fashion, and architecture. It’s a go-to 3D texturing app for creative professionals everywhere.
  • Full creative freedom. Painter helps you achieve the look you want, from product design to realistic games and visual effects to projects such as stylized animation.
  • Smart tools for enhanced artistry. Use Smart Materials that adjust to any object to show realistic surface detail or wear and tear. Explore mask presets that adapt to any shape, and paint with efficient, dynamic tools.
  • What you see is what you get. The state-of-the-art viewport in Painter shows all your artistic decisions in real time. Iterate on complex materials with advanced lighting and shadows, making texturing even more creative and painless. You can even preview your model in the included path tracing mode.
  • It’s nondestructive. In Painter, every action and stroke is recorded, and can be recomputed at any time. This means you can change the resolution of your project at any time without ever decreasing quality, or even modify existing paint strokes.
