Designed from the ground up to meet the needs of the most demanding VFX texture and matte painting artists, MARI is a 3D digital paint tool that will revolutionize your workflow. Capable of handling vast numbers of pixels, MARI outperforms all other paint tools in speed, flexibility, and processing capabilities. MARI allows artists to concentrate on painting detailed, multi-layered textures directly onto 3D models in a fluid and natural way.

Mari was originally developed at Weta Digital. The technology was driven by the texture department's need to handle complex, high-resolution textures on 3D models in District9, The Lovely Bones and Avatar.

Born out of genuine production experience, Mari was designed as a full 3D paint tool with a responsiveness and feature set that puts even the best dedicated 2D paint systems to shame. Mari is extremely scalable, coping easily with an obsessive level of detail – literally tens of thousands of textures – quickly and elegantly.


Mari was developed by a New Zealand company Weta Digital, which was used in such films as the District 9, The Lovely Bones and Avatar. Mari is intended only for texturing 3D-models. From analogues (Zbrush, Mudbox, Blender, 3d-coat) is different for up to several thousands of large textures (32k to 32k pixels) on the model, greater speed of working with large textures, greater opportunities for visualization, flexible engine, brushes, animation support, and the ability to create animated textures.
