Smart Masks in Substance 3D Painter refer to a powerful feature that allows users to create complex and dynamic material masks with ease. This feature leverages procedural textures, gradients, filters, and other advanced techniques to generate intelligent and adaptive masks that can be used for various painting and texturing tasks.
With Smart Masks, users can precisely control the placement, intensity, and blend of different materials on their 3D models, achieving detailed and realistic results. These masks can be edited and adjusted non-destructively, giving artists the flexibility to experiment and iterate on their designs. Whether it’s adding dirt, rust, or wear and tear effects, or creating intricate patterns and designs, Smart Masks in Substance 3D Painter empower users to take their texturing and painting workflows to the next level.
Features of Smart Masks
- Procedural Textures: Smart Masks utilize procedural textures to generate complex and customizable masks. This enables artists to create intricate patterns, weathering effects, and more, without the need for manual painting.
- Dynamic Mask Creation: Users can create masks using a variety of parameters such as height, color, curvature, and more. These parameters can be adjusted dynamically, allowing for real-time tweaking and experimentation.
- Non-Destructive Editing: Smart Masks in Substance 3D Painter can be edited non-destructively. This means artists can make changes to the masks without permanently altering the underlying texture information, providing greater flexibility and the ability to iterate on designs.
- Intelligent Mask Blending: The Smart Masks feature offers intelligent mask blending options. Artists can control how materials blend together, creating seamless transitions and realistic effects.
- Mask Interpolation: Substance 3D Painter allows users to interpolate masks between different layers or materials, providing smooth transitions and blending effects.
- Visual Feedback: Smart Masks provide visual feedback, allowing artists to see the mask influence on their 3D model in real-time. This aids in precise adjustments and ensures accurate placement of textures.
- Mask Export: Artists can export Smart Masks as separate channels for use in other software or in game engines, facilitating compatibility and workflow integration.
