Import 'Impasto' 3D data from Corel Painter to achieve realistic paint effects in Blender.
A free add-on is now available to import Corel Painter RIFF files. Specifically this enables the impasto depth information found in Painter RIFF files to be imported into Blender. The impasto depth data can then be used as a bump or displacement map, or both. Potentially, using a displacement modifier with high enough subdivision, one could even 3D print a painted model with a tactile impasto texture.
