Update features include new alphas and patterns, improved filters, new fonts, Substance Source integration, ambient occlusion and a live edge wear filter, and is available for free to all Substance Painter 2 -- Indie holders.
Along with in-app access to Substance Source, Substance Painter 2017.1 adds 300 new customizable alphas and patterns, as well as new and improved filters, new fonts and more.
In an effort to ease the workflow between tools and content, Allegorithmic has integrated Substance Source directly into the Substance Painter UI. You can now browse the online library without leaving your project and download materials directly to your shelf.
New high-quality alphas and procedurals are now available in the shelf, from Celtic to medieval symbols, from brushes, stains, and splatters to geometric shapes and barcodes. Most include procedural parameters, unlocking even more possibilities. A favorite feature from Substance Designer, HBAO ambient occlusion, makes its way into Substance Painter, allowing artists to quickly generate high-quality ambient occlusion from painted height and normal map details.
The Substance Painter update also includes a live edge wear filter that allows artists to see worn edges adapt in real-time to custom-painted details and new glow and drop shadow filters, allowing artists to fine-tune the look of their textures by controlling the shadows, midtones and highlights separately.
This release is accessible for free to all Substance Painter 2 -- Indie license holders, and to Substance Painter 2 -- Pro license holders who purchased after January 1, 2017. Substance Painter 2 Indie license holders will get free updates until Sept 30th, 2017. For an explanation on the numbering change, please visit Allegorithmic’s website.
