You can draw all the materials at once, and at the same time you can add exquisite details in a few seconds, with a simple interface and various powerful functions, which can help users deal with daily work requirements very easily, greatly improving the user's office Efficiency can be said to be very consistent with the current game's texture production! This software is mainly to help users make 3D painting easier. 

It has two functions: particle drawing and material drawing. It supports importing custom shaders and creating your own channels for drawing. It also comes with many Sbsar formats. 

The texture pack can be used by simply adjusting the parameters, making it easier for you to make textures more in line with today's games. In terms of texture design and rendering, Substance Painter is the world's leading software.

 It provides drawing functions and 3D conversion functions that allow you to create a more relaxed working environment when processing models and colors, and can create the most realistic textures. 

Rendering effects can improve drawing efficiency and save time for processing details. It is very suitable for some game developers, animation, visual effects studio personnel, so that everyone can easily apply to 3A games, animation, movies and other fields, so that users can easily complete Own design goals!
