Author Topic: SP major problems painting  (Read 1933 times)


I have major problems painting simple colors, just because SP keep painting on the other side of the object too :( And seems to be random, some times do some times don't.

Is this a bug or what's going on?

Sounds like either
The UV map has geometry overlapping (it happens to me from time to time if I'm flimsy and in a hurry!)


Your brush paints across seams in order to get rid of the ugly hard edges that might appear.
Change it to any of the options and give it a go.


no overlapping UV, and I tried that setting too:(

Hey Teo,

can you provide a screenshot of what you are doing?
Are your UVs in the 0-1 space? Substance Painter can't use multiple UV spaces at the moment.

Also try to enable the backface culling in the brush properties, this will avoid the brush to bleed on the non-visible/opposed parts of the geometry.
Don't forget your log file. It can be exported from the Help menu of the software.

Brush Tanget was set by default, but backface culling did the trick.

Thanks a lot guys, my apologies for not checking that.
