Re: Layer setting for skirt

Layer 0 is the layer closest to the avatar, which would be that white underskirt or ruffle you are talking about. Every layer after that would be +1. After it simulates correctly, make sure to turn all the layers back to layer 0.

Re: Creating a curtain

You'll want to use pleats to get the right shape. I've included a project file for you to play with. You'll want to soften those sharp folds. You can do that by reducing the pleat strength/angle a bit and changing to a stiffer fabric that won't bend that sharply. It appears that the pleat tool is no...

Re: Thickness has no UV map?

That's interesting. I did some testing myself. I added thickness to a pattern and then assigned a different color to the front, back and side. Then I opened it on the UV Editor. There is no indication that the side is there. I have a feeling that the thickness is purely a render option and not assoc...

Re: Latest MD release - Smooth avatar not working correctly?

I've used it. It didn't explode or anything, but after smoothing I was using the new Auto Fitting and that crashed. It crashed on me a couple times until I turned smoothing off.

You should definitely report it to MD.

Re: Stitching on top of a box pleat

If the pocket was actually box pleated, you could do it in one go, as it would be one pattern. As it is, you've got a pocket and then the separate "pleat" pattern. You'll have to split up the sewing of the patch. Use free sewing and sew the top and bottom of the patch to the "pleat" and then the out...

Re: Using for the first time and....nothing works

If this is a legal trial version of MD, you shouldn't be having these issues. You can use the reporting feature at the top right of the program to ask the MD team for help.

Re: How to make thick heavy cloth without many drapes

I don't know what is going on given the image you've attached. Your problems are not the fabric. A setting of wool or even leather would give you a nice stiff fabric, but I doubt that will fix these issues. I think you might be having problems with your avatar and collision settings. Try your garmen...

Re: Trace Patterns with UV Map

(I moved this post to a better category so it can help others.) There is no way that MD can automatically sew those pattern pieces like that. They would have to be sewn in the program. This video came from MD and I don't know why they would have skipped showing that step in the video, but they defin...

Re: WIP clothes for sci fi character

Nice padding work and I really like the articulation at the elbows. Reminds me of a motorcycle jacket.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Error Message: Mesh changed from quad to tri -how to fix this?

MD really likes tri's. The quad conversion is really only intended to be done at the end prior to export somewhere else. That said, you may want to contact MD with the issue button in the top right of the program and ask them what is going on. Make sure to come back here and share their response for...
