To make sure you have the platform you need to get the best out of MARI, check out the minimum and recommended system requirements, and read the next section.
GPU: GPUs are used for rendering and also for baking out the result to textures. Therefore, faster GPUs can render a heavier scene at a better frame rate and shorten the time to wait for baking to textures (i.e. “Flatten Layers”, “Merge Layers”, “Convert Procedural to Paintable”).
GPU (memory): The bigger the GPU memory, the easier it is to paint more details in general. The two biggest occupiers of GPU memory in MARI are:
CPU: There are certain non-GPU operations which benefit from more cores or a faster CPU. Examples of non-GPU operations in MARI are:
If a license is node-locked, then that license can be used ONLY on the machine whose system ID the license is keyed to. If you buy five of this type, then you identify five machines that will get the licenses.
If a license is floating, then that license can be used on the machine whose system ID the license is keyed to, but it can also be used (one at a time) by other machines actively networked to it. If you buy five of this type, then you only identify the one machine the five are all keyed to (the license server), and you can use MARI simultaneously on any five machines on the same network.
You can read about our licenses in The Foundry licensing tools user guide.
MARI's licenses are single installations for one machine or license server. If you have floating licenses, any machine (up to the number of floating licenses purchased) connected to the floating license server can run the software.
