Can Painter's brush alphas and shape alphas be exported to Photoshop?

I know we can import .abr Photoshop brushes into Painter, but can the default brush alphas and the shapes in the Alphas category be exported from Painter in a file type that Photoshop can use (like .png, .psd, etc)? I assume not, as using Export Resource only copies the native Substance files to another folder, and dragging them into Photoshop directly doesn't work either.

 

Thanks in advance for any information.

Hi @SnowSultan,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

The compatibility between our applications is an important subject for us, but from what I know, it's not directly possible to send a resource from Painter to Photoshop.

 

A workaround would be to create a scene with a simple plane, and build the Alpha directly in Painter.

This way, when you export it as a texture, you can use it as a .PNG alpha. I agree this is not ideal, but this should at least work properly.

 

Best regards,
