Marmoset Toolbag 1.09 The Essential Realtime Artist’s Toolkit.

Marmoset Toolbag is a full-featured, real-time material editor and renderer bundled in a tidy package. Toolbag provides 3D artists a powerful and efficient workflow, bringing exemplary presentation quality to 3D artwork in a real-time environment — without hassle and time-sink of expansive shader setup and lengthy render times.

Toolbag is designed to give high quality results as quickly as possible; drag a mesh file into the window and begin applying textures.The view updates as you work; every material, lighting or render setting changes in real time – even complex effects such as ambient occlusion or depth of field. You won’t be needing to take snack breaks while Toolbag renders.

In addition to its own proprietary formats, Toolbag also supports many common file formats such as .obj, .fbx, .tga, .dds, .psd, and .pfm, making it a straightforward matter to get your work up and running quickly.

Material, lighting, and render settings in Toolbag are intuitive and come with useful presets, so that models will “look like something” as quickly as possible, with minimal technical wrangling. You won’t find yourself re-inventing the wheel every time you want to do something basic like light a model or apply a normal map.

Leave your shader nodes and compilers at the door. Material setup in Toolbag is fast, friendly, and robust. Your basics – diffuse color, normal, specular, gloss, emissive, and glow maps – are always easily accessible and quickly set. Both tangent and object space normals maps are supported, with a variety of orientation options. Several alpha blending modes are available as well, including the order-independent “alpha to coverage” approach. The real fun begins, however, with some of the more glamorous material options.

109 Features:

Detail normal maps now work with dynamic lights
OBJs with missing normals will have normals auto-generated

109 Bug Fixes:

Shadow accuracy is improved for dynamic lights
