Substance Painter: Now With Substance Source In-App Access And Plenty of New Content
Staff Writer By: Jeremie Noguer
Monday's release marks the first iteration of our new number-less release cycle. Subsequent releases will be named after the current year rather than a major version number. But enough with the technicalities, here is what's new in Substance Painter:
While we are hard at work on major features for the next release, today's update is focused on content. We are bringing Substance Source and Substance Painter closer together and 300 new customizable alphas and patterns have been added to the Shelf, along with new and improved filters, new fonts and more!
Along with a new feature that brings 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-App Access to Substance Source
HBAO Ambient Occlusion
Live Edge Wear
This filter allows artists to see worn edges adapt in real-time to custom-painted details.

Color Balance and Correction
Integration Product Manager Wes McDermott will showcase all the new features as part of a livestream tomorrow, Wednesday, June 21 at 12 p.m. PST.
