In version 3.3, the workflow for ZBrush and Substance Painter is enhanced. With the UDIM layout option, there will be no normal seams issues.

Here is the workflow for reference: 
  • Step 1: Send CC3 Base+ Character to ZBrush via GoZ.
  • Step 2: Sculpt character in ZBrush, and send the final shape back to CC via GoZ.
  • Step 3: Export normal map (A) from ZBrush, and export mesh (B) from CC.
  • Step 4: Paint textures in Substance Painter by using (A) & (B), and export all textures you need from Substance Painter.
  • Step 5: Import textures to CC.

When exporting FBX from CC, 
  • Select “Maya” as target preset for the appropriate OpenGL settings.
  • Click the setting icon to expand Advanced Setting. Disable the UDIM checkbox.

  • Create a texture set per UDIM tile: unchecked
  • Normal map format: OpenGL

For me Substance Painter is absolutely unusable.
I have no Idea why the workflow here is needed 
I was in hope I can finally paint acrossing tiles.? 
I have no Idea why SP is so overrated .
Paint on multiple UV set seamless can 3D coad since years in easiest way .

Oookay I got it 
RL Maybe you make an additional Export Option to remove all the shader domains from face group Body , then we can use the new UDIM Option in Substance painter without a detour in other programs .
At the moment , To paint across tile,  we need delete the shade domains from Face Group Body. For that we need to jump  in another 3D programm to do. But it would nice go the directly way   
But, I'm happy it works finally and SP is an Option to paint on a CC Character seamless

After I spend a weekend with the new UDIM UV Layout feature, 
it is great,  I had so much fun to work with. 
It makes so much easier to use zbrush and SubstancePainter for texturing.
It just to the right time hehre with the new paint across tiles feature released 
For me the best CC feature of the whole uptdates lol.
Now I can finally more enthusiasm for Substance Painter 
Thank you ! Cool
