Toolbag 3.03 Update

We’re excited to announce the release of Marmoset Toolbag 3.03, a free update for all Toolbag 3 users. The latest version brings Mac support, Python scripting, and a host of other features and bug fixes. We’ve added a bunch of exciting new content to our website as well!

See the full change log on the Toolbag History page.

MAC SUPPORT



Mac users rejoice, our industry leading real-time rendering and texture baking software is available on your platform of choice! Toolbag 3’s headline features like animation support, global illumination and baking are yours at last. Going forward, future updates will be released simultaneously on Mac and Windows.

PYTHON SCRIPTING



With the addition of Python scripting support, Toolbag can be extended and customized to fill an essential role in your pipeline. We’ve exposed nearly every aspect of Toolbag to empower you and your team to create plugins that automate common tasks. Use Python to import meshes, set up materials, batch render and more. Custom UI support enables you to create an easy to use front end for your plugins. More advanced operations like mesh generation, file format importers, and custom animation logic are possible with our Python plugin system as well.

Jeff Russell wrote an introductory tutorial that covers the basics of creating Python plugins for Toolbag. Learn how to create simple scripts and add UI elements to your plugins.

WRITING CUSTOM SHADERS



Jeff Russell and Chris Perrella teamed up to provide a comprehensive guide to creating custom shaders. Learn how to replace shading models, add inputs, set up bespoke UI controls and soak up tips for more advanced effects.

NEW 'GETTING TO KNOW' EPISODES



Our series of video tutorials has two new episodes. In Episode 9, Chris Perrella guest stars to offer an overview of the custom shader system. Episode 10 features a detailed look at Toolbag 3’s animation system. Follow along as Joe Wilson demonstrates how to create an animation of a cat driving a tank from scratch.

About This Software

Marmoset Toolbag™ is a powerful real-time material editor, renderer, and animation editor bundled in a tidy package. From pre-production to post-production, Toolbag is an essential tool for every 3D artist throughout their development pipeline. Put Toolbag to task as a texture baker, an animation editing suite, a high fidelity viewer for asset sharing and internal reviews, and most of all a rendering suite to showcase your artwork in the best possible light. Or just have fun with it - we think you'll like what you see.

The third major release of Toolbag ushers forth a new standard in image quality. A slew of exciting new features ensure that you’re able to tackle any challenge, while our modular shaders and a responsive scene editor empower you to work at the speed of light.

Animation

From previewing run and jump cycles to staging an epic short film, our new animation tools will bring your cinematic vision to life. Import mesh animations via FBX or Alembic files, and keyframe the movement of meshes, lights, cameras, post effects and more using Toolbag's new suite of animation tools.

Lighting

Toolbag's lighting features are second to none. New to Toolbag 3 is real-time global illumination, which pairs with exceptional image-based lighting to provide awesome occlusion, beautifully bounced light, and spectacular specular reflections.

Texture Baking

Our artist-friendly baking tools provide the instant feedback needed to revolutionize your texturing workflow. Real-time updates, bake groups, and interactive 3D painting of skew and offset makes baking a piece of cake.

Dota 2 Support!

With full shader support to match Dota 2's material setup, Toolbag 3 is a great visualization and final render tool for your Steam Workshop asset development. Directly import a Valve Material file (.vmt or .vmat) to get started quickly. Toolbag 3 now also supports the Source 2 Dota hero shader and material files.

Export to Web

Toolbag 3 includes our very own Marmoset Viewer, a WebGL viewer that delivers a 3D web experience second to none - no plugin required. Construct your scene in Toolbag and export a high quality 3D presentation with the click of a button. Marmoset Viewer runs on thousands of devices and a variety of browsers, with support for Windows, OS X, iOS and Android operating systems.

Production Wizard

Toolbag makes getting to work easier than ever with Unity and Unreal Engine export. Share your art with the world by blasting off renders and Marmoset Viewer scenes directly to ArtStation.


Tailor Toolbag to fit your pipeline with an array of customization options. Custom shader authoring empowers you to add, extend, and replace Toolbag’s shaders. Add new lighting, shading, texturing or deformation shaders, all with automatic population of the GUI. Get technical with our command line interface and take control with the scripting system to automate importing, exporting, rendering, baking and more.
