The creator considers sharing a breakdown of the project in the near future.
Technical Artist and Creative Producer at Adobe Wes McDermott, known to many for producing top-notch tutorials on all-things Substance 3D software, has recently showcased an incredible Smart Material made in Substance 3D Painter.
This time, the author showed a realistic-looking rust effect created by linking multiple layers, which can be applied to the surface of the mesh and reused across multiple projects. In the future, Wes also plans to share a comprehensive breakdown of the project, providing a closer look at Substance 3D Painter's Smart Materials and explaining how this particular effect was set up. We highly recommend checking out Wes' amazing YouTube channel so as not to miss any future updates.
