Shape Stroke - Substance Painter Filter

General / 24 July 2021


Shape Stroke is a substance painter filter that creates a stroke around the edges of an alpha shape in your mask layer. This is useful if you want to use an outline of an alpha instead of the alpha itself, such as creating unique borders and patterns.
