I've never heard of isolating the green channel of the normal map and using it as a paint layer. What effect does that create exactly?

WARNING They dont listen to their users as much as they like to say they do. Check their forums. Plenty of requests go unanswered. Their "To Do" list has been outdated. They lack staple features such as a Text Tool, Adjustment Layers, Channels, Layer Styling, Proper Cropping. Paintstorm cant even resize a photo correctly (It will always leave a border when resizes). You also run into square artifacts occasionally. There have also been several instances were paintstorm was detected as malware, once called out, the dev reuploads a clean version. This happened at least twice from forum reports and Virus Total. Aside from the very obvious lack of support and maintinence. The brush system is good. However a good brush engine will not replace the other basic features and functions paintstorm lacks. DO NOT expect support. This is definitely a homegrown app and it shows. If you want a versatile brush engine, clip studio or even krita is where its at.

Substance Designer Advanced Menu
18 April, 2018

Andrew Dixon has presented his custom tool for Substance Designer that will help you speed up your process. Advanced Menu puts the most relevant nodes at the top, so there’s no need to search for something useful. 

The goal of this Advanced Menu is to speed up your workflow by putting the most relevant nodes at the top and creating sub-menus for other node sets.

I’ve tried to layout the menu with the most useful categories near the top along with a few ‘most used’ nodes at the very top that are outside of a sub-menu
