"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
