Import OBJ to Garment / Loose UVs

Ask about specific settings, like fabric properties, or the difference between the sewing tools. These would be things you would expect to see in a software manual.

Import OBJ to Garment / Loose UVs

Post by hansolocambo »

I'm facing an issue that really doesn't help my workflow.

I'm often using the very useful Import OBJ to garment. But the issue is : as long as I work, the obj will retain its UVS. And if I export the simulated garment-OBJ, UVs are there too. Perfect.

But if I save the scene, and re-open it, the OBJ doesn't have UVs anymore. Sometimes working with characters interacting, I find it easier, to simulate an animation using an MDD cache, to simulate each character separately, save a Zprj for each, then merge them once animation is simulated : to continue working later on the final pose with no more animation. But there again, UVs are gone.

Does someone know how to save a Zprj but KEEPING the UVs of imported Objs. I mean... Avatars I use are also OBJs imported but somehow they keep their UVs just fine !

Thanks in advance for your help on that !

Hello!

I am facing the same problem as well. I used OBJ to Garment Import, and everything works fine for the first time, the UV is there as it is in Maya. However, after I saved the Marvelous scene and reopened it again, the UV disappeared. The image below shows before and after.

This is really troublesome for my workflow, because I need to keep the UV for the texture maps to work after the simulation is done. If this problem persists, I cannot close the Marvelous scene for as long as I am still working on the project.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Is there a solution to it? Thanks in advance!

This sounds like an issue for CLO. Use the reporting system within MD and report this to them. Give them good examples and ask for a response. They are usually pretty good about explaining what is going on.

Alright, I'll do that. Thank you for your reply!
