7:00 p.m. — 9:30 p.m.
Join The Foundry and Gnomon School of Visual Effects and celebrate the release of MARI 1.1 on Windows and Linux.
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.
MARI has a creative toolset which puts many stand-alone 2D paint systems to shame, allowing artists to concentrate on painting.
We’ve got three fantastic guest presenters to show us how they’ve been putting MARI through it’s paces in the real world of production. 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 and Brad deCaussin from Digital Domain.
Brad used MARI extensively on Avatar at Weta Digital. Now at Digital Domain, one of the first studios to adopt MARI, Brad will be showing us some past and present uses of MARI in production. We’ll give you a sneak peek at the MARI product road map too.
