Dear Marvelous Designer user or 3D clothing creator,

You may post a reply or your question or a new discussion topic in any forum as a guest.

ALL GUEST POSTS/COMMENTS/REPLIES ARE UNDER MODERATION.

This means, your posting/s will only go live once an admin or moderator approves your submission/s.

Please be as detailed as possible in your issue description text.

Adding a Video?

You can add a video in your comment, reply or in a topic you create.
You may need to describe an issue by making a screen capture video (we recommend SNAGIT or CAMTASIA tools).

Upload your video to Vimeo, YouTube and grab the page link or share link and simply paste it into your post.

If you wish to add a video to reply to a topic with a relevant quality video you found on the topic – just paste the link in a new line in your reply and mention what the video is about and why you like it and chose to add it here.

For example:

I am a guest who wants to add this video 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gO8RcKbNU8

So I’ll paste the link to the video on the line below (make a new paragraph) and magic happens:

This video is a Marvelous Designer 7 tutorial on the new zipper tool in MD7.

If you wish to attach an image while posting as a guest you will not be able to use our file uploader.

Only registered users who are logged in can do this. Our media library offers registered users the convenience of a private member’s gallery where all your uploaded images reside, for easy selection and insertion into your submissions on our Marvelous Designer’s Forum.

A possible way around this limitation (if for some reason you really do not want to register to our forum), is to embed an image from some popular image sharing site like Pinterest or Flickr. 

Or simply paste a URL to an image. Note, this will not allow the image in your posting to open in a lightbox to its full size as happens when you are logged in as a registered member and can upload files and attach them into your posting.

This Marvelous Designer Forum Discussions and Q&A site is all about creating 3D clothing.
As a CG artist, if you use Marvelous Designer in your workflow, you probably expect it to be a great tool that helps create dynamic 3D garments rather fast. That is, if you know what you are doing and have a good and correct workflow plus a solid grip on using the MD software.

However, even the pro’s can at times find the MD software taxing. Hence we made this a place for questions of all things Marvelous – issues, how-to’s, questions and answers.

Marvelous Designer, a CLO 3D fashion industry software offshoot, is a cutting-edge cloth simulation software for creating realistic dynamic 3D clothing for games, films, animation, VFX, for pre-vis purposes, for 3D printing, as well as for a legal scene of crime re-creation and also for creating online eCom clothing catalogs.

Marvelous Designer is used by leading 3D and 2D artists, top game and animation studios, film studios, ad agencies, as well as by DAZ, POSER, Sansar, Reallusion/CC/iClone users and content creators making a living from selling garments on 3D marketplaces such as DAZ 3D, Renderosity, Second Life, Sansar and the Reallusion content shop.

It was used in games like Assassins Creed and for movies like The Hobbit, TED, the Adventures of Tin Tin and more.

3D Clothes made in Marvelous Designer are dynamic, meaning, the Marvelous Garments drape realistically on any pose.
It’s easy to animate the dynamic Marvelous Designer clothing, as well as add wind to make the clothes blow.

When you know what you’re doing, you can save lots of time by using Marvelous Designer software, instead of studying cloth anatomy and then sculpting wrinkles for endless hours. You can now create your 3D clothes faster by using Marvelous Designer.
