SUBSTANCE PAINTER 1.0 IS OUT!

Dear Friends,

The new generation of texture painting has arrived! Substance Painter 1.0 is out, with a mission: democratizing 3D painting.

The most significant features for this 1.0 include:
• 4K resolution support, to achieve superb detail in your painting.
• The ability to import your own rendering shader to paint in your own style.
• A much improved UI, making the tool easier than ever.
• A lot of new content: a dense library of PBR materials, Substance brushes, noises, mask generators and much more.

As promised, everyone who purchased the Beta will be upgraded today, for free.

We also want to announce that we will be extending the currently running promotion: the Indie license will remain at $99 (instead of $149) and the Pro license at $449 (instead of $590) until October 31st.
We hope you like the tool as much as we are excited to unleash it! Let us see what you produce with it, we can't wait!

Reviews

“Substance Painter is that magic application; there's always more great features to make your life easier!”
Laurens “Xoliul” Corijn - Technical Artist, EA DICE

“Substance Painter is like a look into the future of asset creation. It puts other methods to shame with it's comparative speed and feature set. It's a really exciting step forward, and I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes.”
Carlos Montero - Environment Art Lead, Cryptic Studio - Project Lead, Black Mesa

“For 20 years, mainstream 3D paint solutions have relied on the same manual approach from one program to the next. Along comes Substance Painter, which has the potential to shake things up, innovate and revolutionize the way we visually create in films, games and other digital mediums.”
Gee Yeung - Creative director, visual development artist for film, Dreamworks Animation Studios

I would give my life for this program. I litterally have no other ambition more than making beautiful #(* to send over to this program. I often waste hours enamoured over my own work and often with the viewport looked worse so I'd be able to get back to work. The particle brushes are a welcome addition and also are the grand work of wizards. I dont know what they're gonna do next but my heart cant take much more of it. I never said this about a software company *sniff* but I love these guys. God bless Wes McDermott.

Even at this early state, I would say this is probably the most useful and intuitive of the texture painting apps. I've tried quite a few and had trouble getting good results, but with Painter I am able to get really good results. Especially combined with Designer.

I find it interesting that the #1 global achievement (almost 30% of all users) is sending a crash report. Yet, only 2% have launched the app more than 50 times.

I've only used this app a couple of times myself. So far, I like it. PBR looks great. Easy to pick up. There's a bit of a learning curve to get anything really good. Seriously, 3D Coat, Mudbox and Z-Brush don't seem to have PBR. Bravo to Substance Painter for being on the cutting edge! Why the hell am I spending so much on programs like 3DS Max and Mudbox?

Amazing for cost and functionality! i bought the indie pack for $124 during a sale which i thought was the greatest thing ever since i was looking for a great texturing tool at a good price. i turned from simple 2d textures in photoshop into a AAA studio texturer. Defeinitly get Substance Painter!

Particle painting and PBR materials are just some of the surprising and innvoative features Substance Painter comes with. It's on the right track to become an awesome program, if you purchase it now in early access state you can suggest new features and help the developers to make a better package, so if you are interested in 3D painting or texturing for game development in general you should try the demo and then purchase it if you like it.
