Learn a professional workflow
Substance Painter is an easy to use, powerful tool used for more dynamic 3d texture creation. Cinema 4D and Blender users often include Substance Painter in their workflow to speed up production and create high quality, custom textures.
Engage in a hands-on workshop
Follow along with Remington by downloading 3D models to practice with. You can go model by model and understand how the tools in Substance Painter work. This will show you how to create textures for multiple models and build a scene.
Create better-looking 3D
For 3D artists in games, film, and advertising, Substance Painter offers a robust toolset that is easy to use. Custom texture painting allows to control the look of your 3D scenes fully. Create 1K-8K textures with ease using the full suite of tools like smart materials, procedural textures, and masks.

What you'll learn
You will learn to take models from your 3D app (C4D & Blender covered in this course) bring them into Substance Painter, unwrap a UV, paint custom textures, export textures from Substance, and import for render in C4D and Blender.
We’ll also cover using the C4D standard render engine, Redshift, and Octane. You will also learn to import Substance Painter materials in Blender, using Cycles. How to create and use ID maps. Introduction to Substance link. Introduction to Substance source, share, and CC0 Textures. Exporting from C4D and Blender to Substance.
Before we can begin painting we need to quickly cover UV unwrapping. Substance has a powerful unwrap feature, but we will also show you the basics of unwrapping in C4D S22+. Creating a custom or auto UV is easier than ever whether it’s done in C4D, Blender, or Substance Painter.
We will quickly cover the interface and how to set-up a project. We’ll get you up to speed on the various tools so we can dive into creating new textures.
- Starting a Project
- Shader & Display Settings
- Iray vs Standard
- Typical display settings
- Layer Stack
- Photoshop Export
The painting tools inside of Substance will look familiar to Photoshop users, which makes it easy to pick up quickly. With a few simple painting examples, you’ll begin to see how these tools can be used across a number of uses. We will walk you through getting started with this diverse and strong toolset.
You don’t need to be a painting master to take advantage of a painting workflow for 3d art. With its wide range of included materials and effects, you can create most materials without ever touching a brush!
This is where Substance Painter really shines in our opinion. Having a powerful foundation of smart materials and masks to work from does a ton of heavy lifting for scene texturing. If you have to texture paint an entire scene, using smart materials and masks will make easy work of that process, while still giving you a ton of control. A million unique combinations exist when you can paint masks and build a layer stack. We’ll be covering how to create, combine, and use smart materials and masks!
Throughout this training you’ll be engaged in hands-on learning right from the start. Download the provided 3D models and start painting immediately. You’ll soon learn just how easy and powerful this tool is for creating custom 3D art.
The model list we’ll be covering in this training is below:
- Doggy Bed
- Cabinets Stove
- Table Sink
Creating custom, beautiful textures in Substance Painter is easier than ever. We’ll look at creating new styles by manipulating existing materials. This will allow you to bring your own creativity to these models and make a 100% unique render.
We look forward to seeing what stylized textures you can come up with!
With it’s wide range of templates, Substance painter offers a variety of easy to use templates for various render engines. We’ll walk you through the basic formats and how to create your own presets.
The funniest part of all! Making stunning images with high resolution, custom textures on your models. We’ll look at several popular rendering tools. We’ll also cover some common issues that may arise so you’re 100% ready to integrate Substance Painter into your 3d productions.
Included are a fully lit and textured scene for Redshift, Octane, standard, and Blender! We’ve also included a single product lighting template so you can render your objects as you go!
