Preparing garments in MD/CLO
- Open Marvelous Designer and import your collider mesh as your avatar.
- Usually, the Scale is set to centimeters (100%)
- You may also want to decrease avatar’s skin offset down from the default 3mm (e.g., to 1mm or 0.5mm). .
- Open a simple garment and adjust its position on the avatar.
- If you want to apply different material properties to different patterns in Unreal Editor, you need to create additional fabrics and specify the patterns associated with these materials.
- You may also want to change the vertex distance to be higher than 10mm, e.g., 15 mm.
- Note that only one garment can be exported at one time. Make sure all the patterns/pieces of the exported garment are sewn together.
- Keep in mind that Zipper, Buttons, and other 3D objects will not be imported in uDraper. Hence, make adjustment to your garment design to ensure the pieces are sewn together as required instead.
- If you want Topstitches to be rendered in UE, select Texture for the Topstitch Type. Later, you’ll need to use Bake textures option when importing to uDraper.
- Start the simulation and make sure the garment is draped correctly. Then, stop the simulation.
