Is there a possiblilty to select the polygons of the model that the brush will apply to? This is what happens when I paint the insides of a house.

Inside: enter image description here

Outside: enter image description here

As if the absence of WASD Camera controls wasn't bad enough, every brush stroke smears up faces around it. Painting indoor environments is a pain in Substance Painter but I don't see any other program that can do the job.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Have you tried hiding the poligons you don't want to paint, and after you do everything make them visible again? \$\endgroup\$ – user100681 Nov 27 '17 at 12:17

Switch to Quick Masking Mode by pressing T on your keyboard. Then Select the area that you want to mask out. Masked areas will be colored black. Invert the selection by pressing I on your keyboard.

Press T again to apply the mask and begin painting. T will toggle between paint mode and mask mode so you can go back and forth as you need.

Once you're finished press Y on your keyboard and the mask will be removed and lost forever.
