[MARI] changes the way we texture. It allows for more complex and detailed texturing. It’s being able to work in 2D and 3D—that can’t be underestimated.

Mari is for

3D painting software Mari logo
Build up your look

3D painting has never been more fluid or flexible. Whether you’re working in Mari’s powerful node graph or layer system, you can freely mix paint with procedurals, filters, color correction and masks.

Mari’s physically correct interactive preview features shadows, environment lighting, specular highlights and built-in support for Unreal, Arnold, V-Ray and Redshift shaders, so you can develop your look with confidence.

Peter Averston, Lead Texture Artist, MPC

I've been using Mari since its infancy and within a few days of receiving the beta, I was already painting hero assets. I'm happy to see that Mari has been adopted in all the VFX facilities I have worked in since my first encounter with the software and MPC is no exception.
