Substance Sampler from Adobe

The Photoshop-style Content-Aware Fill tool is the major new feature in Substance 3D Sampler 3.3, which is set for removing of unwanted details from images by sampling of surrounding parts of the image, in order to create a clean replacement, without splices and repeating elements.
Users draw a free mask, in order to define the details that need to be removed, after which the software develops all the PBR channels of the material, at the same time creating a new map of normal together with the map of diffusion.
The function of Content-Aware Fill, currently available only on Windows and macOS versions of the program, also works with other tool sets, that’s why it can be used for removing objects from HDRI.

An opportunity to display the environment in the form of spherical projections appears, which facilitates their editing. In addition, the existing 2D view has received a new exposure slider, and the view settings are now saved for each material or environment lighting and are saved when moving from one asset to another.
For improving of working process, the “Clone Stamp” tool has been updated, and now the users can draw a number of strokes on a layer at one time, with each stroke displayed separately in the net of grids.

The results of the cloning operation are also displayed recently directly in the previous view of the brush. The Crop and Transform widgets have taken shortcuts of keyboard for centering the transformation and fixing the square ratio of sides.
It must be noted, that now it is possible to send materials directly to Substance 3D Stager, – an Adobe program for compositing and rendering software, without exporting and re-importing files, which previously was only possible in the process of environments usage.
