Mari 3 | Sharing Layers

Sharing layers and channel workflows in Mari 3. In this introduction to Mari 3 , we take a look at sharing layers from channels to optimize for speed but still have the flexibility to go back and do changes to your work. By splitting heavy parts of you layer workflow such as dirt masks into separate pre baked channels you then share into your live channels. This is to offload the complexity in any single channel, similar to what you can do with a node-based workflow and the bake to point node.
