Texturing in Toolbag

Real-Time 3D Material Creation

3D Painting in Action

Real-time 3D painting and direct editing of materials inside the 3D viewport have never felt this breezy. Paint gradients and perfectly straight lines, swiftly rotate and scale textures, drag-and-drop materials with ease, and add a personal touch using fully customizable brushes.

Calibrated For You

Toolbag’s texturing system works in perfect synchronization with our industry-standard physically-based renderer, providing a complete solution for you to create and calibrate the highest-quality materials for your games, film, 3D visualization, and more.

Infinite Layering

Discover a world of infinite possibility with Toolbag’s unrestricted layering hierarchy. Stack and mask any layer type to paint complex materials in a completely non-destructible workflow.

Keep your work organized by grouping, merging, and rasterizing your layers. Changed your mind about a layer? Switch gears and convert your layer type without compromising your art.

Layer Types

Paint

Pixel perfect painting with complete creative control

Fill

Swiftly block out base materials

Procedural

Add seamless random variation in a 3D space

Adjustment

Fine-tune editing with blur effects, gradient maps, and color corrections

Processor

Generate organic wear and tear and texture build-up

Work Smart

Make use of the Library’s Smart Materials collection to quickly lay down a base for more elaborate material work.

These carefully-crafted preset layer stacks adapt weathering effects to the unique surface qualities of any mesh. Customize any Smart Material to suit your needs, or create your own and save to the Library for your own reusable, bespoke effects.

Unified Baking & Texturing

Link your Bake Projects and Texture Projects to keep your content changes up to date in real-time.

Baked ID maps control material assignments, and surface and lighting maps drive processors to quickly generate weathering effects.
