DreamWorks Animation Selects MARI To Enhance In-House Pipeline

A visual effects software developer, has announced that CG feature animation studio, DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. has purchased a site license of MARI to enhance its in-house pipe-line.
The Foundry has already begun utilising MARI on upcoming productions.
MARI allows artists to concentrate on painting detailed, multi-layered textures directly onto 3D models in a fluid and natural way. MARI was originally conceived because no existing commercial product could handle the complex, highly detailed development work required for 3D painting.
Jack Greasley, MARI Product Manager of The Foundry commented: “DreamWorks Animation sets the bar high when it comes to CG films. We’re delighted that after a vigorous evaluation of MARI they’ve taken the decision to deploy it across their studios. This is a vote of confidence in MARI from a proven leader in the industry, and helps position MARI as the new industry standard for digital paint.”
Darin Grant, Head of Production Technology at DreamWorks Animation said: “We have a number of ambitious projects in our pipeline and we need to make sure we have the best technological tools in the industry. MARI provides us with an interactive and intuitive workflow for 3D painting that helps our surfacing and matte painting artists to achieve that ambition. Our strong relationship with The Foundry and their commitment to high-end product development has given us a great deal of confidence in MARI.”
MARI 1.3 is available on Linux and Windows. To find out more visit: www.thefoundry.co.uk
