How to Quickly Set Masks by Geometry in Substance 3D Painter

Reza Sarkamari covers masking versus geometry masking in Substance 3D Painter.

This new tutorial from Reza Sarkamari covers the differences between simple masking in Adobe Substance 3D Painter and masking by geometry.

In Painter, we can mask all layers to display their content only on specific texture parts. However, did you know geometry masking is usually a lot faster to set up when you would like to apply masks?

“Geometry masks should be part of your primary toolset, especially when you want to mask a layer based on the 3D model geometry of the associated Texture Set.”
