The Substance team has presented a new version of Substance Painter which improves the core experience. The update brings viewport upgrades, new UI helpers, an enhanced symmetry tool, proper 2D view export and a huge boost in performance.
NEW SUBSTANCE PAINTER GETS FASTER WITH LARGER ASSETS, UX UPGRADES & EXPORT IMPROVEMENTS
The team continues on their path to full UV tile support and the update includes a completely rewritten memory and texture management system which means lower recommended specs and the ability to load an enormous amount of data in the tool.

What is more, you can now freely move the symmetry axis using a 3D manipulator or through the new symmetry panel. The newest version also brings the display of the symmetry plane as an intersection with the mesh or a preview of your brush’s symmetrical clone.
There are now ways to easily differentiate parts of your layer stack. A new color swatch in the layer’s contextual menu is said to allow the addition of color accents to folders and layers.
