The Foundry introduces MARI 3
At Siggraph 2015, The Foundry introduced MARI 3, the newest version of its industry-leading 3D paint package. Ideal for texturing and look-development artists in the VFX, animation and games industries, MARI 3 combines productivity-enhancing features with broader and tighter pipeline integration. This includes an exposed node graph for advanced users and integration with the rendering and baking capabilities of MODO, The Foundry's 3D content creation solution. MARI 3 brings support for widely-used shaders such as Arnold, V-Ray, Unreal and Redshift, as well as for OpenSubdiv geometry. MARI 3 also delivers new flexible, artist-friendly color management workflows, based on OpenColorIO; FBX geometry support; session scripts; four new APIs (the Texture Data Access API, Geometry Data Access API, Display Driver API and Custom Graph Context API); enhanced texture transfer functionality allowing artists to generate height and normal maps between high and low polygon models; new Entity Locators that offer a 3D manipulation with improved visual accuracy; and more. MARI 3 will become commercially available in Q3. [source]
