[ #SubstancePainter ] Allegorithmic has unveiled Substance Painter 2.4 with a brand new shelf >> See Also: Substance Painter tutorial...
It is now possible to filter, search and sort through assets by using a combination of folders, usages and keywords. Assets can be easily filtered by shelf as well and searches can span through multiple shelf locations at once.
New Import Dialog
The import process has been rebuilt from the ground up to allow to easily import and arrange multiple assets in a shelf or project at once. Assets copied manually in the shelf will also appear in real-time in Substance Painter without the need to restart the tool.
