The Foundry Releases MARI 1.2

February 22, 2011

London – Visual effects software company The Foundry announces MARI 1.2, the latest version of its creative paint and texture tool.

Now shipping, MARI 1.2 adds Python integration, Fractal Noise Tools, Texture Mirroring, and new Shader tools, as well as improved detection and support for GPUs. Support for Python 2.6.5 enables users to produce scripts that seamlessly integrate MARI into their workflow.

Texture Mirroring is useful for painting UV assets and, when combined with the two new fractal noise tools, can be used to add natural looking detail. A new Levels Filter allows you to change the color levels in paint, and new shader modules have been added for masked bump and improved normal mapping.
