In this course, we will be teaching you the essential workflows, terms, and techniques to help you get started with MARI. We will be giving you an introductory look into MARI so that you can learn essential terms and definitions and start to build a solid foundation in this powerful texturing application. We will start off by covering the basics of MARI- working with projects and looking at the interface. We will then take a look at some key concepts in MARI, like projection painting and the paint buffer. After that, you will learn about channels and shaders and how to use masking to get the best texturing results. And to wrap up, we will look at how you can export your finished texture maps. This series of step-by-step videos was developed with artists new to MARI in mind, so we will be moving at a steady, easy-to-follow pace, making sure you understand terms and basic techniques.
