MARI 1.1 Release Event

Hosted by Gnomon and Presented by The Foundry | December 1st, 2010

About this Event

MARI is a creative texture-painting tool that can handle extreme projects. MARI was developed at Weta Digital to handle the massively complex, highly detailed look development work demanded of the texture department by projects such as District 9, The Lovely Bones, and Avatar.

Gnomon Alumni Brandon Fayette & Jake Raymor from Bad Robot Productions will show us their hard surface and organic structure painting techniques live. Scott Metzger from Method Studios showing how MARI was used on the latest Lexus Commercial.
