Mari Extension Pack 3 Highlights
The latest Extension Pack has a new file and folder structure within your mari script directory. This design will make it a simple, compact and easy to update extension, and easy deploy package.
All of the Extension Pack’s Layer Nodes have been reworked so that they can be used effectively in the Mari Nodegraph.
There are some new adjustment nodes, which include a Histogram Scan, RGB to HSV + HSV to RGB, and RGB to HSL + HSL to RGB
Mari Extenuation Pack 3 also includes new basic nodes with a Normal Color Node, which is a simple node generating a default tangent space normal color, and a new float node, a simple node that easily lets you set a float value.
Also new are two manifold 3D nodes. The manifold 3D node allows you to transform coordinates such as position, plus normals, resulting in a change of scale, translation or rotation. The new Manifold UV node can be used to change scale, offset and rotation of 2D Coordinates (UV Coordinates).
You can now pin layers and channels with the pack. Pinned Layers offers an easy bookmarking system for layer selections which also applies to include pinned channels.
It is now possible to export your geometry from inside Mari to an OBJ File. The new export object command can either export subdivided or unsubdivided geometry if OpenSubd is applied.
