May 13, 2013 The Foundry Mari 2.0 Masking & Painting Tutorial

More : Inspiration · The Foundry · Tutorials · Videos ·

The Foundry Mari 2.0 Masking & Painting Tutorial

Check out this very cool The Foundry Mari tutorial from Jeff Kleinzweig, the lead artist at Zindagi Games.

The tutorial covers: A custom shader in Mari that replicates our in-game physically based shader nearly identically. Paint diffuse, normal, specular, and roughness to describe any type of material simultaneously by using shared mask layers. Everything gets baked down to one material draw call.

Adjusting the brightness of the paint’s roughness map on the fire hydrant will transition through mips in the specular cubemap, effectively “blurring” the reflection. This can be seen more clearly on the example using the chrome sphere. Using the mask of rust as an input to the bump channel, painting rust will also affect the final normal map.

Mar 14, 2013 The Foundry MARI 2.0 is out now

The Foundry MARI 2.0 is out now

The Foundry have released MARI 2.0

New features include:

  • Procedural Layers – A powerful procedural engine is built into the heart of the layer stack; offering fluid, GPU accelerated real time procedural noises, patterns, projections and more. Procedural layers mean artists can easily create the look they want, seamlessly blending procedural and painted detail with the same toolkit.
  • Mask groups – In MARI 2.0, rather than a single mask per layer, each layer’s mask is a full layer stack in its own right. Artists can use blending, groups, adjustments and procedurals in their masks for a much more flexible, and non-destructive, workflow.
  • Shared layers – We don’t think artists should have to waste time keeping track of how and where they have reused layers and masks. MARI 2.0 introduces a unique layer concept, shared layers, to ensure that artists can spend more time painting. A shared layer is one that appears multiple times in the same stack, or is shared between stacks, and is automatically and instantly updated wherever it is used.
  • Streamlined layer view – With powerful grouping, tagging and filtering options, the layer view in MARI 2.0 means even highly complex stacks are easy to navigate and control.

Customers on active maintenance can Download MARI 2.0 now!
