The Bakery

Introducing the Bakery: Mari’s very own map baking engine. With the Bakery, Mari now has the complete set of tools to enable you to realize your creative vision. You can now create geometry maps, including curvatures and occlusions, without needing a separate application or plugin. With the ability to quickly bake maps for multiple objects at once across multiple UDIMs there’s no need to disrupt your artistic flow — and no need to leave Mari.

Artist experience improvements

We’ve made multiple improvements to the Node Graph, optimizing how artists can work in it, whichever way they choose to. Artists can now sever connections and also shake to disconnect nodes — ensuring that Mari continues to evolve, with artists’ quality of life at the heart of it.

There are also further Python scripts and new procedurals available to support your day-to-day artistry.

Updates to Vendor Shaders

We’ve built on our strong relationships with our render partners, and updated both the Chaos V-Ray and Autodesk Arnold shaders. This ensures that what you see in Mari is what you’ll get in the final render, for more accurate work and feedback.

Pipeline and licensing improvements

Team licensing is now available which enables organization admins to remotely manage the usage of licenses for Mari, to ensure that artists are only using the licenses they need, when they need.
