This pack gives you the ability to paint directly onto assets. There are 2 versions. An in-editor version with lots of options for baking out textures you paint, and a game-ready version which you can use to either paint colours, or drive effects.
This pack allows you to paint Diffuse, Metallic, Specular, Roughness, Emissive, Opacity, Normalmap and Displacement map textures directly inside the Unreal engine and export the textures, Or use a Colour and MSR texture in game to control different aspects of your materials.
** In Game Painter **
This is similar to the editors painter, but it has simplified basics for performance reasons. You can pick your texture size and if you want to bake 1 or 2 textures out. By default these are a Colour texture, and an MSR texture (Metal, Specular, Roughness). However, you can use these channels in various ways to achieve different effects on your object. The blueprint that is used for this painting also supports mobility, so you can have physics objects that interact with the world leaving a trail behind it, or painting on its own surface.
There are a variety of examples provided to show different ways this setup can be used.

There is a built in 'mirroring' function for the X, Y and Z axis, and each individual texture can be exported as a .EXR files. These files can be imported directly into Unreal, or Photoshop for further editing. There is also an option to combine various black and white textures into a single image using the RG and B channels individually.
