Try this workaround and see if it works for you. Make your face selection, set the projection mode to Selection Only and switch to the clone brush tool and set it to registration mode (CTRL + Windows/Meta key + LMB) - using the the clone brush like this allows you to "pull" paint from the object back up into the paint buffer so you can edit it. Once the paint is back up in the paint buffer open up the filter (Hue) and set the operation to Current Painting. Once you've applied your filter, bake it back down onto the object.

The registration mode on the clone brush is really handy, but it can be tricky to know what your pulling up into the paint buffer - I set the paint mode to 'color burn' when painting and switch it back to normal once I'm done pulling the texture off the model.

Mari already has a PS style layer system via shaders, although it requires some manual labour (add module, set channel) in order to put them together.

The Diffuse-Blend module acts the same as a regular photoshop layer - doing an 'over' operation (by default) and allowing your to change the operation (multiple, add, screen, burn, etc) accordingly. The Masked-Diffuse-Blend module acts like a photoshop layer with a mask attached. With these two modules you can replicate PS layers easily.

You can also reuse channels for different layer effects - rather than having to duplicate a layer in order to use it somewhere else in the PSD. Use a mask channel to multiple against a painted channel and use the same mask channel to burn another channel.

With the shader system you don't have to lump all your different layer effects into one shader - one asset I painted recently had a shader which showed me what the diffuse + dirt looked like, another which showed me what the spec + bump looked like and another which showed me what the whole thing (diffuse + dirt + spec + bump) looked like. With Mari I tend to use a few shaders, each doing a different effect that I can bake out without having to turn layers on and off all the time.

Or to think of it another way, imagine being able to reference PS layers within the same or different PSD files. You'd paint on one layer and have it update in all the PSD files where that layer is referenced.

resetting mari

Hi guys

Am a new Mari user and i have a little question.
How do i reset Mari entirely to its Default settings? Like the way you do for Maya by deleting the Prefs folder.

Because i was busy messing around with it only to realize later that it actually remembers all your previous settings prior to closing the software..so if you change important Default settings u end up in shit..

Anyways, i'll appreciate your response
kind regards
