  3. Copy paste / Drag and drop sub layers and mask layers.

    We can already reorder sub layers... However, being able to copy and paste any sub layers/mask layers (filters, fills, levels) is kind of missing. Also, being able to drag and drop them from one layer (or mask layer) to another would be nice.

  4. Export Render to texture from 2D view(Combinde texture as complete map)

    Export complete texture map by 2D view.
    Be able to setting up to custom render texture size and bake output with custom export path.

    Some idea suggest to bake complete map function menu in to export all channel menu.
    Korean almost graphic user working for mobile game ... It is really need for mobile game graphics workflow.

  5. Add a text tool

    Add a "Text" tool that allows the user to add text in its texture (2D or 3D view) using a custom font.
    You should also have the possibility to manipulate it (move/rotate/scale).

  6. Symmetry center based on object pivot point.

    The symmetry system don't work properly when I'm using multiple meshs to bake each part separately. When I am exporting all separate objects together, the Substance Painter create a bounding box covering all objects, but it would be better if the symmetry center was based on a pivot point from one of the separated objects (having the ability to choose which object).

  7. uv unwrapping within painter

    Hi! It would be great to have a UV unwrapping sytem inside Painter.
    This way you could work the whole time inside of SP and not jumping from your 3D app to SP.
    Thanks for listening!

  10. hex color with copy/paste

    Right now you have RGB and HSV values, but it would be really useful to have a corresponding box with the equivalent color value in hex like #82174D. Photoshop has this functionality, and the value of this feature is that you can copy/paste this hex number from another source like Photoshop or a palette generator like http://paletton.com/ without having to edit every RGB or HSV value. Way faster for building palettes.

    This would work great with an "add to swatch"-type feature as well, but there are several suggestions here to add that already.

  11. Improve readability of layer stack by indentation and colorization

    Added indentations of child layers and folders and additional colorization of a folder and its children should help improving the readability of layer stacks.

  12. Be able to use the "down and up arrow key" to change the "blending mode" in "Layers Panel"

    There are times where I'm looking for the right blending mode in the for a layer. I find it that you have to click the blending mode button every time, rather than just using the down or up arrow keys.

    Doing this will save uneccessary clicks.

  13. Brush opacity control = better painting with pressure sensitivy

    Currently there is no opacity control via stylus pressure. There is only flow setting (which is not stroke opacity, as it controls the accumulative flow of the paint). Paint "dab" is added to previous "dab" regardless of stylus pressure, making it impossible to easily blend colors with pressure sensitivity.

    Solution would be to add a new variable "opacity" which could be linked to stylus pressure and a way to turn off paint accumulation. This brush mode combines all of the paint dabs inside single continuous stroke so that hardest pressure pixels replace the lower pressure pixels instead of adding to…

  15. Instanced Layers, Masks, Effects, etc. for INSTANCED SMART MATERIALS

    Sometimes for a UDIM Workaround, multiple texture sets have identical fill layers, smart materials, masks or effects. For better iteration, it would be great to ALSO have the ability to INSTANCE instead of JUST COPYING. For instance, I would love to be able to change parameters of a single fill layer, generator or effects and have them automatically be exactly the same in all other texture sets where I instanced that fill layer, generator or effects. This would be great for all elements that compose the layer stack. So that we can have INSTANCED SMART MATERIALS for FAST ITERATION.

  16. manual move symmetry plane

    the characters or objects i work on at work are almost NEVER symmetrical. maybe the head would be and nothing else. i have to then paint each side of the face manually. this is a HUGE pain, PLEASE let us manually move the symmetry plane. 3dcoat has great options for this. just let us move the symmetry plane. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Auto Save

  18. change the name of the material inside of painter without reimporting the mesh

    As an outsource partner i run into this a lot, I get files that have to be integrated and the material name isn't always what it is supposed to be, and sometimes the material name changes in the middle of the texturing process which causes me to spend a couple of hours manually renaming tifs, psd, etc, and at that point reimporting the mesh with the proper material name is just not possible.

    SO! my suggestion is that you are able to change the material name inside of painter without reimporting the mesh. this would allow tifs psd etc. to…

  19. Export the mesh from an SPP file

    The idea of putting everything needed into one single SPP file is great for exchanging painter projects.

    Sometimes it would be nice to be able to export the mesh from an SPP project to get it back into the 3D application without having to bundle the corresponding 3D mesh separately.

  20. Toggle for Perspective/Orthographic View

    This has already been posted on the forums, but I'll post it here too as I find this important.

    Having orthographic view while for example using alphas for adding details would be essential. This would minimize the distortion in many cases and could help on regular painting as well.
