Substance Painter: Glowing Edge Effect

Here’s a quick video I made to show one of the many ways that you can create a glowing edge effect on your 3D model by using the “UV Border Distance” generator and Auto Stitcher. The results you will achieve by using the UV Border Distance generator may vary depending on how you have unwrapped your model, but you can adjust the results to include missing edges without having to adjust your UV map. Simply add a “Paint” layer above the “UV Border Distance” generator. This will make it possible to paint in additional mesh details, or remove them as required. You can also achieve similar results by experimenting with “Curvature” generator. That’s all for now, thanks for reading.
