Marvelous Designer and Frozen 2

Hi everyone, I thought you might be interested in an article I found. The designers working on Frozen 2 make a mention of using Marvelous Designer in the costume design process. https://www.vox.com/the-goods/2019/11/18/20970465/frozen-2-costumes-design-animate-anna-elsa As MD is used more and more i...

Re: Cloth types

Marcus, Even being an experienced person who sews, the names given in MD are still subjective. You aren't losing much by not being familiar with them. The most useful way to learn which-fabric-does-what is to look at the properties of the fabric. I'll take a look at leather, satin and knit. These ar...

Re: UV Tool

As a beginner, there is no need to worry about the UV tool for now. It is used for laying out the patterns for export to other 3D graphics programs, like Blender, 3DS or Maya. If you are new to 3D graphics, as well as MD, UVs are a rather advanced topic that can be confusing. Give yourself a little ...

Re: Just updated from 6 to 6.5... interface is HUGE.. how to make UI small again?

On the main menu try Settings > User Settings. I'm using version 8 and I think the location for font size has changed so you will just have to look through those different options to find it.
Hope that helps.

Re: Which texturing software is best for MD clothes?

Fantastic question, but I have no solution for you. I've used Substance, PS and AI just like you. I've also used Blender. It is time consuming and often does not produce the results you're after. It looks like you want real-world results, not just simple game textures. For the time being, I think yo...

Re: how to quantize rotation of avatar in 3D view?

Off the main top menu select Display > Viewpoint and then select a direction. You an also use the number keys as shortcuts. This allows you to move more precisely within the 3d window.

Another method is to right-click on the 3d window background. This also brings up the viewpoint options.

Good luck!

Rosemary,
Why did you have to re-register? Your account should have been fine. The change was only for new forum members.

Re: How Do I Keep a Portion of My Mesh Flat After Simulation

The fabric is being stretched out of shape. First, I'd turn on the stress map and see if you have red. If those straps are pulling really hard, it will be difficult to get it to hold it's shape. Next, apply a different fabric to that shape. Set the Fabric preset to leather or something very stiff. T...
