How to Create a Dent Effect Using Compare Mask and Anchor Points in 3D Painter

Wes McDermott shows how to make an automated and procedural dent effect in Substance 3D Painter using Compare Masks and Anchor Points.

Anchor Points in 3D Painter allow you to pass information from other layers up the layer stack so that you can create amazing procedural effects. In this tutorial, Wes McDermott shows how to take that further by using Compare Mask.

Wes shows how to create an automated and procedural denting effect from a displacement that uses Compare Mask and Anchor Points to make the dent and treat the paint and metal wear simultaneously.
