Preamble

Union Bytes Painter is a pixel art designing tool written in Godot and C# and similar to common applications such as Substance Painter. Union Bytes Painter allows the creation of 2D sprite and textures with color, normal, height, roughness, and metallic maps. Sprites and textures can be edited using multi-channel mode in the 2D or 3D space. Further tools like filters and baking can be used to finalize your artwork with details like space ambient occlusion.

Features

Pixel painting in 2D and 3D space

It is possible to draw in texture space or directly on the 3D model.

Physical based rendering texture maps

The editor supports all PBR texture channels: color map, normal map, height map, roughness map, and metallic map

Multi channel editing in real-time

Draw on all PBR textures at the same time, to get feedback immediately.

Real-time preview in Godot engine

Because the tool is made with GODOT you get a realistic preview of your materials in the engine

Normal map generation

Automatic generation of normal maps from height maps, in different modes: Sobel, Prewitt, Cross, Godot.

Preview post processing

Adjustable post processing effects in the 3D preview.

Texture filters

Apply noise, color correction, blur or texture space ambient occlusion on textures.

Texture baking

Baking of masks from position, normals, ambient occlusion, and thickness.

Stamp tool

It is possible to draw masks and other project files as decal onto all texture channels.

UV Editing

Editing and adjustment of the UV Layout.
