Preview: BPainter Blender Addon


Andreas Esau is working on an exciting add-on that will extend Blender painting with exciting features like layers. Check out his preview videos.

You may recognise Andreas at the creator of the Asset Sketcher add-on.

BPainter is a Painting Addon for Blender. The goal is to make painting in blender more efficient and less of a hazzle to setup.

In this video I demonstrate you how the Layersystem works in more detail. I have started to implement a powerfull management systems for layers in cycles.

As frontend you have a well known layerstack and in the background all cycles nodes are generated that are needed to enable this workflow.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. This looks just awsome. I can´t wait to use it!
    Asset Sketcher already is a good tool which i can recommend. This one looks really promissing as well. Thanks for sharing!

    Im so longing for it! Seems to rapidly speed up the workflow, and as an ole dirty bastard user from the last century I hope that I can afford it! ;)
