Top VDM Brushes for Blender 3D
What are VDM Brushes?
VDM brushes are sculpting brushes for 3D software created with vector displacement maps. Unlike alpha brushes which use black and white images to raise or lower geometry, VDM brushes contain three dimensional sculpting data.
VDM brushes only became available for use in Blender version 3.5 but have been available in other 3D software programs for a long time. We can create our own brushes or purchase full VDM brush kits on places like Blender Market and Art Station.
