Game Changers: Marmoset Toolbag 2.0

I want to review this amazing piece-of-software that I think most of you will end-up trying and hopefully buying. What is Mamoset Toolbag™ 2.0 you may ask? Well, it is described as, “...A full-featured, real-time material editor and renderer bundled in a tidy package... provides 3D artists (with) a powerful and efficient workflow, bringing exemplary rendering quality to every stage of the 3D art pipeline...”

Now here’s my reasoning as to why, I believe, Mamoset Toolbag™ 2.0 could be a game changer for 3D Concept Designers:

You design your character, prop or set using your 3D package of choice... Now what? You could render in your 3D package but we know how long those take.

What you need is a “real-time” renderer and material-editor - Mamoset Toolbag™ 2.0, where you can import your mesh, alter your materials and render high-quality images OR turntables using physically accurate Image Based Lighting - IBLs, and DONE! No long hours waiting in front of the monitor to discover that you forgot to check this attribute or load that texture. In Mamoset Toolbag™ 2.0 you can move the IBLs around, add dynamic lights or cameras, change the DOP, add new textures... whatever you want to change, just hit render, and DONE! Fast high-quality images / turntables without the long and expensive wait!
