Mari is for


Peter Aversten — Lead Texture Artist, MPC

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.

Mari is an essential part of our pipeline, enabling us to paint multiple objects over numerous UV sets. It is constantly being updated with new powerful tools and with an increasing demand for higher resolution textures it has become invaluable.


Matt Milard — CG Production Supervisor

I like to hand paint everything and having the arsenal of tools in Mari to block in all of that procedurally, based on edge flow or curvature, or whatever that expedites my workflow greatly.
