Create realistic clothing with updated 3D design tool

One-to-Many sewing tool eases the workflow on items like waistbands, cuffs and necksMultiple Selection has now made it easier to create rolled up sleeves and trousers by allowing poly or tri-selection across garment pieces, reducing the steps needed to create these. There are some downsides: the new FBX import-function doesn’t work on some imports so, you’re still better off importing and posing MD3-style. This removes the need to first split lines in multiple parts before you can attach several segments to it. Also the current quad-topology is uneven at best. Idiot! However, the new version’s strengths lie elsewhere. unlike these ladies.Several other tweaks have been implemented as well, such as the 1:N Segment Sewing options, which mean you now can now sew multiple segments onto one, in one go. Bar this, MD4 is a solid release; and its biggest issue may not be technical at all. A no-frills, workflow-enhancing release.

But, of course, the great Renaisance master was unable to utilise MD4’s powerful tools to cover up his vitruvian man’s shame – it only went on sale this year! Weta Workshop used Marvelous Designer to dress Frodo and co.Several other tweaks and features have been implemented for easing the digital garment creation workflow: Basting and Tacking enables you to test fits before you finalise them, while Layer Clone clones entire layers of garment patterns, making padded garment creation a snap. MD4 has few new wow features. Add to that a slew of other tools such as Normal Flipping and Pattern Scaling, MD4 has significantly, and wisely, solidified and enhanced existing functionality, rather than implementing too many entirely new features. Instead, the developer has focused on keeping their promises, with the addition of the Quadrangulate function, and workflow enhancements, such as a Symmetry and Symmetry Merge-functions, giving you an alternative to the onerous ‘design half, unfold, copy and mirror paste’ routine in the creation process.
