Save time loading Substance Painter textures

1

We're seeing more and more Substance Painter news in the Blender community. Here's a free add-on by Michel Anders that makes it easy to load SP textures into your Blender project.

Hi,

I created a small add-on to load a set of substance painter textures with very few mouse clicks. It goes a bit further than Node Wrangler's 'load multiple images' in that you only need to select one image from the set, sets the non-color data attribute for non color textures and orders the textures in a neat frame with descriptive names for the textures nodes themselves (see the image a the top of the article).

It is completely free and I welcome any feedback. Details and download instructions in this article.

About the Author

Michel Anders

Although a Blender user for over ten years, I have to admit that I am an enthusiastic but (very) mediocre artist at best. I discovered however that I really enjoyed helping people out with programming related questions and a couple of years ago when Packt Publishing was looking for authors on the BlenderArtists/Python forum I stepped in. So far this has resulted in several books: Blender 2.49 Scripting, Python 3 Web Development and recently I started self publishing books on Smashwords and Blender Market. The current list consists of: Creating Add-ons fro Blender, Open Shading Language for Blender and my latest: Blender Add-on Cookbook I maintain a blog on Blender related things, 'Small Blender Things' and I keep an eye on the coding forums at BlenderArtists where you can also contact me via private message if you like, my nickname there is 'varkenvarken'. Recently I started offering some Blender add-ons on BlenderMarket, the first one is called WeightLifter, a vertex group tool, which is now accompanied by Space Tree Pro, an environment aware tree modeler for ArchViz and IDMapper a tool to create ID maps easily for Substance painter. I live in a small converted farm in the southeast of the Netherlands where we raise goats for a hobby. We also keep a few chickens and the general management of the farm is left to our cats. This arrangement leaves me with with enough time to write the occasional book.
