Jens Kafitz Walks Through the New Features and Improvements in Mari Extension Pack 4, Update 5
The Mari Extension Pack is an ever-growing and continually refined suite of tools that extend Mari with new tools and workflows. A new update to the pack adds new pivots per UDIM, some bookmark improvements that should help streamline things, a jump to node input feature, and a new update to the radial node system.
The bookmark system is a great way to easily navigate through complex node-graphs in Mari. The bookmark system was added in update 4, but has seen some nice refinements in update 5.
Jump to Node Input / Output lets you quickly jump to a node that is attached to a specific input.
Kafitz taks a look at how to use the new Radio Node System to automatically connect imported Nodegraphs to existing nodes, for example to connect Mari Extension Pack Dynamasks to their necessary Maps (Occlusion, Curvature etc.)
