The Foundry’s Mari competition winners
Find out who won the three copies of the powerful 3D digital paint software…
And the winners are…
Rosie Dennett from Nottingham, John Dean from Bournemouth and Cathy James from Windsor, win the copies of Mari.
This is your chance to get your hands on the latest release of The Foundry’s revolutionary 3D digital paint tool – Mari 1.4v4.
We have three copies of Mari 1.4v4 (each worth £1,200) to give away; each licence includes one year of maintenance worth £200.
Designed in production to meet the needs of the most challenging VFX texture and matte painting projects, Mari takes care of the technical issues to enable artists to spend more time being creative.
Mari is a 3D digital paint tool built to make life easier for artists. Capable of handling super-high-resolution textures and millions of polygons, Mari lets artists concentrate on painting.
It gives you the ability to view whole data sets at once, paint detailed multi-layered textures straight onto 3D models and optimise processing capability with its ‘paint and bake’ approach.
Mari is a 3D texture-painting application developed in-house at Weta Digital. It has been used on movies such as The Adventures of TinTin. Tintin © 2011 Paramount Pictures. All Rights Reserved. Courtesy of Weta Digital. See more movie stills at the bottom of this post
Mari is open, scriptable and customisable, as well as being built for power and speed. With Mari, artists can customise the UI to suit their needs and preferences, and co-operate with Photoshop or other VFX tools.
Mari makes life simple, fitting around the artist to provide a fast and flexible workflow, where day-to-day technical issues are a thing of the past and artists can work in ways never thought possible before.
As part of The Foundry product family, Mari also interacts seamlessly with Nuke. It’s not difficult to see why Mari, running on either Windows or Linux, is the 3D paint tool of choice for artists working on the most demanding projects.
