Ultimate Guide to Substance Painter UDIM

Texture maps are just as important in 3D modeling and animation as they are in 2D graphics. The problem is that there’s a lot of information to keep track of when working with textures, especially for new artists!

In this post I’m going to show you the basics of using UDIMs within Substance Painter. With UDIMs, your texture images will be automatically mapped out onto different parts of your model – saving you time and frustration!
