Loading a Custom Brush into Substanmce

I have bought a Package of Skin Brushes. Now i try to import them into Substance Painter.

 

I can only import the Files as a Texture and i can use them in the Brush. The Problem is the Setting of the brush himself. I got a Rectangle with the Size of 512*512 in PSD Format.

 

I have to Setup the Brushsetting itself, that i can Draw the PSD with a Pencil. But i got Clippings.

 

How do i have to Set the PSD File as a Brush, so that i can Draw Pores on the Skin of the Mesh ?

I have not found a Tutorial on Youtube about this Issue.

Hello @Conna3005,

 

Unfortunately, a .psd format won't be automatically turned into a brush. There is two choices to turn your alphas (I guess your .psd are alphas) into brushes.

 

  • First, you can open your .psd with Adobe Photoshop and make a custom brush from the alpha (I am not a Photoshop expert, so here's a tutorial that seems straight to the point). From here, you can export your new brush as a .abr file. The .abr format is dedicated to brushes and Substance 3D Painter will recognise it as so, therefore you should be able to import the file without any issue into Substance Painter.

 

  • The second solution would be to import the .psd as an alpha inside Substance Painter, choose any brush you like in the library and replace the current alpha by the new one. You can now tweak the parameters of the brush and when you're satisfied, simply right click anywhere in your Properties window > create brush preset to save the brush. 

 

With that being said, if those solutions don't work for you, feel free to share one of your .psd in my dm, so I can dig deeper into the issue.


Best regards,
