Discover one of the most powerful painting workflows within Blender

Blender offers some quite good painting tools, unfortunately you need to set up a lot of things before you can dive into painting. Many functions are only a very low level and you need to setup a lot before you paint. On top of that a cluttered UI hinders you from developing an efficient painting workflow. This is where BPainter solves quite a few issues. Here are 3 Reasons why BPainter could be the tool for you!

Intuitive Layersystem and UI

BPainter offers an intuitive layersystem you probably know from 2D painting apps. No UI Clutter. BPainter gives you all important functions at hand.

Universal Brush Library

No need to append any brushes from blendfiles. BPainter delivers a Brush Library that is available in any blendfile. Changes to that Library can be easily saved and accessed in any file.

Easy Texture Access

Assigning textures to brushes has never been as easy as in BPainter. BPainter is shipped with a set of textures. Adding custom textures is as easy as copying your image file into a folder. Direct access in BPainter.


Here you find a full list of features. Take your time and see what it can do.

Powerful Layersystem

A powerful layersystem gives you a fast and flexible workflow. Adding, rearranging, merging and deleting paint layers offers all important features you would expect. On top of that you have access to layer masks, adjustment layer and procedural layers.


Layer Blendmodes

The layersystem offers all sorts of blending modes. Some commonly used are for example:

  • Multiply
  • Subtract
  • Add
  • Overlay 
  • Color

And many more


Colorpallettes

BPainter ships with a default Colorpalette. Easily create new palettes which are globally available.



Improved Colorpicker

Blenders Colorpicker is sort of limited. Picking colors from layers lets you only pick colors of that particular layer. No mixed colors of multiple layers can be picked. BPainter Colorpicker tackles that problem.
