Creativity unleashed. Complexity handled.

With the artist-friendly 3D paint tools you need to make the most of your creativity, together with the power and performance to handle even the most complex assets, MARI is the clear choice for today’s challenging VFX, animation and games productions. Supported by the world’s most advanced layering system, MARI is capable of handling high-resolution textures and millions of polygons without ever compromising on speed or efficiency. It also provides a fully customizable user interface that lets you work just the way you want.

Able to handle millions of polygons and multiple high-resolution textures without slowing down, MARI takes care of the technical issues so you can focus your energy on applying detail where it matters most. The powerful and intuitive layering system lets you mix paint with procedurals, filters, color correction and masks—painting directly onto 3D models in a fluid and flexible way.

And as you’d expect from The Foundry, MARI offers all the avenues for customization you need to make it a perfect fit in your pipeline.

"I love working with MARI because it allows me to work with massive numbers of large resolution textures on the film work I do. It's common on film assets to have numerous UV tiles per object and software like Photoshop can be really inefficient in dealing with such texture sets, MARI, on the other hand, is specifically designed to work this way. I just find the toolset so innovative. Its painting toolset is also very robust and intuitive. I consider it to be the best texture painting software I've used."
Leigh van der Byl, MARI Texture Artist and CG Talk Host
"MARI's fast and responsive and lets me concentrate on being an artist, removing the wasted time I once spent managing files. Its ability to handle large amounts of data saves a huge amount of time, which when you’re working on feature films is invaluable."
Alwyn Hunt, Senior Texture Artist, Weta Digital
"We were immediately very impressed by how well MARI handles multiples of very big textures. We also really like all the paint tools such as the easy to use warper and the different clone tools. When we first saw it we thought, 'at last here's a 3D paint package that might do away with the need for Photoshop."
Fredrik Sundqvist, CG Supervisor, Baseblack
