Looks like it exports to formats that popular engines like Unity and Unreal can use, so that's pretty useful.

Substance Painter 2 includes these new features:
- Iray Path Tracer integration for advanced rendering and screenshot capability
- New Smart Masks for creating and using your own mesh-adaptive mask presets
- New Clone tool, non destructive, for copying and pasting parts of texture
- New Smudge tool, non destructive, for blending and spreading colors
- Ability to chain and composite substances
- New content in the shelf: alphas, tools, materials, smart materials, and more
- New interface with reworked colors, icons, and parameter organization
- New Orthographic view mode and Perspective Field of View control
- New Fullscreen mode with interface toggling
- Full support for the Specular/Glossiness PBR workflow
- Scripting I/O
- Non-PBR shader and template
- Full support of height & normal workflow

Substance Painter 2 is available for $149 (Indie)/$590 (Pro), or $99 (Indie)/$400 (Pro) to upgrade.

ABOUT DAMN TIME!

This is one of the things keeping me tethered to Windows. If I can Designer and B2M here, I could practically stay in Linux forever, minus a game or two.

Mari's great, but it's also 1500 bucks. That's a bit hard to justify for a hobbyist like me.

Suggestion: keep a cheap $200 - $400 Windows Box (or Laptop) around and Remmina RDP or NoMachine connect via LAN, I do this in emergency situations. It's nice to never leave Gnome, Plasma 5 is nice too.

I've always got my Surface Pro 4 handy (which wasn't cheap...), so I myself will likely never be 100% Window Free, even if my desktop PC eventually is. Though if I tried running Designer on it, the thing would probably melt right in front of me. It's a surprisingly demanding piece of software. Same with the games, which are AAA titles like Dark Souls 3, and Deus Ex.

...though I have started eyeballing that new i7 NUC Intel just showed off the other day. The one called Skull Canyon with the skull engraved on the top cuz skulls are rad? Yeah, I could probably use it for dual OSing.

Also, it gives me the warm fuzzies knowing someone else out there likes Gnome. I always got the impression that its fans are like the rare, shunned social pariahs of Linux Land. But hell, Gnome's about half the reason why I started using Linux in the first place.
