MARI 4.7v3

Draw amazing and realistic-looking 3D models that you can use in the latest video games and film productions via this professional tool

What’s new in MARI 4.7v3:

  • New Features:
  • Scalar Color Picking Mode:
  • In Mari 4.1, we introduced the Perceptual Color Picking Engine to our color management system. This intuitive method of picking colors lets the artist choose a color, within the context of how it appears in the viewer, then resolves the RGB value of the color to the target Channel’s colorspace. This allows artists to pick colors based on their perceptual look without requiring any concern for what the RGB values should be for Channels of any colorspace. However in certain scenarios, when choosing values for non-color or scalar Channels, this system would distort the chosen values as the engine would try to process the artist’s choice as a perceptual color rather than a series of scalar data values.

Read the full changelog

MARI is a professional application that enables you to work with large resolution textures and millions of polygons to create modern, eye-candy characters that you can integrate into the latest video games and movie productions.

Includes a sleek, stylish and user-friendly UI

While the setup is not overly complicated, it may take some time to complete depending on the resources of your computer. Upon launch, you are welcomed by a fresh and appealing interface that is easy to navigate and is neatly structured, despite the fact that it displays dozens of features and settings.

In addition to the amazing-looking and well-organized interface, you will be happy to learn that the application features a real-time interactive environment that supports Redshift, Unreal, V-Ray and Arnold shaders.

As a side note, you should know that the application includes comprehensive tutorials and guides that explain every function and feature in detail and that you can access via the Help section or directly on the developer’s website.

Comes with numerous tools that help you work on small details

The highlight of the program steps from the highly flexible approach to texture mapping, an option that enables you to set up scenes. To be more precise, you can use the multi-tile UDIM UV layouts or overlap the layers so you can employ the same textures across 3D models. Moreover, you can mask the tiled surfaces to cover vast areas of the models or export them from channels as individual layers or layered PSD files.

A further noteworthy feature that you can take advantage of when working with this graphic editor, you can count Complex geometry handling, as the app is capable of scaling to over one million polygons for a single topology.

Since the idea of the tool is to provide you better control over the details, you can take advantage of the advanced color management via the OpenColor IO and the realistic interactive preview that permits you to analyze the scene from the director’s viewpoint.

A professional tool for rendering 3D models

All in all, if you are looking for an artist-friendly utility that allows you to make the most of your creativity and that delivers stunning, breath-taking VFX effects and models for game development then perhaps you can consider giving MARI a try.
