Blender Add-on : Tx Layer [Texture painting with Layers]

75 ratings

Texture paint with a Layer Structure

Provides common layer operations in texture painting.
In addition to blend mode, opacity adjustment and basic layer operations, procedural textures and adjust layers are supported.

You can also create realistic textures by using multi channel (Color / Metallic / Roughness / Height).


When you create a layer, a group of nodes for the layer will be built in the shader node.
The node structure is automatically adjusted each time it is added or reordered from the add-on menu.

Support version

For Blender 3.4 or later, please use Tx Layer add-on ver 0.0.53 or later.
(Because the specifications of the Mix node have changed since Blender 3.4, it does not work with versions below ver0.0.52)

For Blender 4.0 or later, please use Tx Layer add-on ver0.5.7 or later.

Product version difference

  • Free version : Has most of the functions implemented, but there will be no updates in the future.
  • Paid version : Includes major improvements to the node group layer, minor improvements/bug fixes, and future updates.


There is an issue with the Bake [Batch] option that does not export correctly.
You can export each layer individually, the alpha like the original layer will not be output and it will be slightly thinner.
