To round the year off nicely we've just shipped Mari 1.6.
More info is available here
This is a great release that adds AMD support, emissive shading and a flow map painting tool kit to all the other Mari goodies.
We've been working really hard with AMD to make this happen, so big thanks to them. We've added officially tested support for the following AMD cards
Radeon HD 7850, HD 7950 and FirePro W7000, W8000 and W9000.
You'll need to have the latest drivers installed.
Here is a quick video showing the new features
As always I'm happy to answer any questions you might have.
There is a 15 day trial on our website and this upgrade (as usual) is available to everyone with current maintenance.
If you're quick you can take advantage of The Foundry / Luxology honeymoon sale.
|"We have been working with The Foundry for the last year to integrate MARI into our production pipeline. MARI 1.6 is the culmination of this work and now includes a powerful vector painting toolkit allowing us to provide our surfacing artists with an exceptional 3D paint tool. The program was possible because of the close working relationship between The Foundry and DreamWorks Animation where they listened closely to our requirements and delivered a solution that exceeded our expectations."|
