Hard-surface has never been faster

The new Multisculpting feature allows artists to paint jaw-dropping normals in real-time, using unlimited layers and any PS tools. Endless new possibilites open up as vectors, layer effects, filters, smudges, lattices, blend ifs, brushes, wires and so much more can be combined non-destructively to build a single normal layer.
With Quixel’s ground breaking displacement generator, you’ll see your normal map extruded in real time on any mesh without ever having to convert it to a height map. Create in 2D, see in 3D — the second you make a change.
