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!
