Key Features And Highlights:
Artist-friendly paint tools you’ll love
Mari’s intuitive brush toolkit and projection painting let you forget about technology and focus on your creativity. Choose from a selection of preset brushes or work with familiar ABR Photoshop brushes, and finesse your painting with non-destructive tech
Build up your look
3D painting has never been more fluid or flexible. Whether you’re working in Mari’s powerful node graph or layer system, you can freely mix paint with procedurals, filters, color correction, and masks.
Take huge complexity in your stride
With the ability to handle numerous UV tiles per object, real-time interaction with millions of polygons, and support for up to 32K textures, It offers virtually limitless detail while shielding you from complex file management tasks.
Eliminate the guesswork
Mari’s physically correct interactive preview features shadows, environment lighting, specular highlights, and built-in support for Unreal, Arnold, V-Ray, and Redshift shaders, so you can develop your look with confidence.
Bake it till it’s done
Use Modo’s powerful baking engine to bake textures right from within the app, and automatically apply the resulting baked texture to the mesh. You can also get better performance on complex projects with Mari’s non-destructive bake point nodes.
The perfect fit for your pipeline
While every pipeline is different, the program fits right in, with support for open standards like OpenColorIO and OpenSubdiv, formats like FBX and Alembic, and extensive APIs and Python scripting.

What’s new in The Foundry Mari?
Limited Patch Range Baking:
In previous versions of Mari, baking would flatten the upstream graph results for all patches within a project even if the results would be masked for a small range of patches downstream. This would waste a lot of computation time when your objects had a large amount of UDIMs. Mari 4.6v4 introduces the ability to use a Limited Patch Range when flattening upstream results to a Bake Point node. You can now limit baking to the required UDIM patches by specifying a patch range and then select a background color for patches outside the given range – reducing bake times and giving the user more control to reduce project complexity with Bake Points.
Export on Bake:
Users now have the option to automatically export the flattened results of a Bake Point to disk after updating its upstream results. If Export on Bake is enabled, Mari will rewrite textures to a given path when patches are baked instead of requiring the user to manually export the updates. This streamlines the process of sending your iterative updates to other applications.
Transform Tool: Local Space Mode:
A new Local Space Mode has been added to the existing Transformation Tool allowing you to manipulate the transform gizmo along the object axises once it has been rotated. Manipulating the Transformation Tool handles while holding the CTRL key now edits the transformation in iterative steps. Additionally, the hit area for Transformation Tool has been increased, removing the requirement of pixel perfect handle picking.
- ID 415556 – The Transform Tool now supports switching between both Local and Global space transformations via the drop-down in the Tool Properties toolbar.
- Additionally, holding the [CTRL] modifier while translating an Object or Locator will perform a translation in 1 unit steps.
- Holding [CTRL] while rotating an Object or Locator will perform a rotation in 5 degree steps.
- ID 435569 – Text entered in the Python Console input is now saved and restored across Mari sessions
- ID 437649 – Users are now able to configure which of Mari’s docking areas own each corner of the main window using Edit > Preferences > Misc > Window Corner Dock Areas, which allows palettes to extend to the full height of the window when changing ownership to the Left and Right Docking Areas.
- ID 437552 – When creating a new Locator from a LocatorList, the current transform properties of the LocatorList fields are applied to the new Locator.
- ID 438250 – If certain NodeGraph shortcuts were triggered before a project was opened, Mari would crash.
- ID 437261 – When copying and pasting a node, importing an MNG file, importing a Material or duplicating a Layer, Mari would emit nodeCreated() signal for all the nodes in the Node Graph.
- ID 427471 – When sibling streams were located in different sub-directories of a common Material Root Path, the Material Ingest Tool would not find more than one valid stream.
- ID 436867 – When creating a Graph Layer, Mari would automatically overlap the placement of the Input and Output nodes which would then need to be rearranged.
- ID 396645 – When applying a Filter to the Current Painting on a Projected Image, the Paint Buffer would unexpectedly resize.
- ID 418186 – When importing a Geo-Channel into a PTEX project, Mari’s application window would turn black on macOS.
Pros and Cons:
Allows you to paint in full 3D
Since Substance Painter allows users to paint in full 3D, it can be used not only to paint full textures, but can also paint masks which can then be used in other tools (like Substance Designer) for material filter generators (like the ones used to make edge wear and dirt)
Painting and procedural editing of textures
Though it is expensive, if you wish to use it continuously you can constantly renew your trial with lovely fake emails. Learning this can benefit your career into games or film.
Great at handling large texture sets
Mari can handle 32K textures since 2010. It was used in creating the characters faces and such in the Avatar movie, as close-ups require such high-res textures.
FIlm Industry Usage
Though Substance Painter is catching up to Mari in terms of texturing wiht higher res textures, this program is what is used in tandem with Zbrush most commonly in Film. For the Game industry it is Substance Painter and Zbrush.
Expensive and impossible to run without an expensive graphics card
The free trial is the only thing free. You’ll have to pay a lot of money for the full version, and even if you do get it, you will have to pay for an expensive graphics card to use it, which means a lot more money flying out of your wallet and/or bank account.
Cannot export in a procedural format
You can not export substance (sbsar) files in Painter.
The most expensive one yet
Not made for hobbyists or indie game developers.
Not object oriented
(what does this even mean?)
How to Crack, Register or Activate The Foundry Mari:
- First uninstall the previous version completely with IOBIT Uninstaller
- Download and extract files (You need winrar to extract password-protected files)
- Install the Setup
- Close software
- Copy/Paste crack files into the installation folder of The Foundry Mari
- Now run the software.
Who is Mari?
Mari, also called Mari Urraca, Anbotoko Mari (“the lady of Anboto”), and Murumendiko Dama (“lady of Murumendi”) is the goddess of the Basques. She is married to the god Sugaar (also known as Sugoi or Maju).
What is Mari software?
Mari is a 3D texturing software developed by Weta Digital for the productions of King Kong and Avatar. Several years later, the software was acquired by The Foundry (Nuke, Hiero, Katana, Modo) and was rapidly popular in some of the largest post-production studios (Digital Domain, MPC, Framestore, Dneg, ILM…). The principal strength of Mari is to be able to paint directly on the 3D model. So, you no longer have to deal with matching or deformation of texture problems. This year at ArtFx, I had the chance to work with this very modern software.
Is Mari free?
With Mari Non-commercial, you get just that; access to a free, non-watermarked version of Mari for as long as you like, so you can learn, explore and have fun at your own pace.
Who was the famous ruler of Mari?
King Yaggid-Lim was killed by his servants, while Yahdun-Lim was assassinated by his own son, who in turn was also assassinated after a reign of just two years. The best-known king of Mari was Zimri-Lim; a contemporary of the mighty Hammurabi of Babylon, famous for the earliest surviving law code.
Who built a beautiful palace at Mari?
The palace of Mari owas made by King Zimri-Lim (reign: 1779 to 1757 BCE). It covered more than 2 hectares and had some 300 rooms, corridors and courtyards. Mari has the best preserved Mesopotamian Palace, with two large courtyards.
