Hot on the heels of Quixel Bridge 2020, Quixel has just released Mixer 2020. Just like Bridge 2020, Mixer 2020 has also been made completely free! This version contains a massively updated UI, a revamped 3D brush system, the Smart Material system and most importantly, the ability to directly paint on your own imported meshes, making Mixer much more of a competitor to Substance Painter in functionality.
From the Quixel announcement blog:
The wait is over! We’re excited to share with you the first Mixer 2020 preview release introducing the first look at early 3D support.
This first release unlocks features for texturing single objects and restyling Megascans assets, with Multi-channel 3D Painting, Megascans Smart Materials, Real-time 3D Curvature, Material ID Masking, Seamless Texture Projection and so much more.
For some odd reason, all of the download links on Quixel.com currently point to the 2019 release. If you want to try the 2020 version it is available for download here. Windows and Mac versions are available.
