You can export textures from Substance Painter in preset configurations targeting other 3d software or make a configuration for your needs. You can setup naming conventions and even pack texture maps into individual RGB channels. You can also add texture padding on export as well. See More
Unlike it's counterpart Substance Designer, you cannot export .sbsar files using Substance Painter. It is designed solely as a texture painting application and not a procedual one, despite leveraging Substances for procedual generation of details. See More
Since Substance Painter allows users to paint in full 3D, it can be used not only to paint full textures, but can also paint masks which can then be used in other tools (like Substance Designer) for material filter generators (like the ones used to make edge wear and dirt). See More
The free trial is the only thing free. You'll have to pay a lot of money for the full version, and even if you do get it, you will have to pay for an expensive graphics card to use it, which means a lot more money flying out of your wallet and/or bank account. See More
Quixel Suite is for those who love working in Photoshop but lothe having to jump between multiple documents and constantly having to jump back and forth between it and 3d software to see what it looks like in context. This makes things alot easier for texturing to the point you don't have to do any painting at all. The one issue is that it's intense on the hardware and takes some time to add and remove materials with the dDo tool. Be ready for a lot of waiting and need for beefy hardware to run smoothly.
