Re: Export stitches on the UV map?

Nope, not that I'm aware of. Every single stitch in topstitches are objects. It's no wonder that your game chokes. Blender slows way down, too. My only suggestion is to take a hi-res model with the topstitching into something like Blender and bake out a normal map. I know, its a lot of work. I don't...

Re: Can't delete a 2D Pattern - Graphic

Now I see what you mean. In your image you have a rectangle pattern selected with pattern images on it. With the pattern selected, look over in the Object Browser on the Fabric tab. See the fabric with the name in orange? (not the checkmark, the name). Select the Fabric with the orange name in the O...

Re: MD in the News

Welcome to the forum Janice. We're glad you are here.

I doubt that MD can be used for earrings or jewelry. My book doesn't cover anything like that.

Re: Can't delete a 2D Pattern - Graphic

You say you have a "graphic pattern". What do you mean by that? Can you provide a screenshot or something? I'm not sure what you are referring to, so I don't have an answer without more information.

Re: Virtual Fashion Show using MD/Clo3D

The CLO and MD products are very different. MD is for 3D graphics and CLO is more garment industry. Although you can have a walk animation in MD, I think you are more interested in the CLO version. CLO is what fashion designers would be using. I was able to find animation in the CLO manual. There ar...

Re: Newbie - Collision Problem

As Rosemary said, it would be great to see your pattern layout in the 2D window. Once thing I do see is the blue outlines indicative of using the Layer property on the patterns. Did you set Layers in the Property Editor? It isn't a good idea to use those unless absolutely necessary. They are very fi...

Some of you might find this article interesting. These people seem to be somewhat clueless about the industry. We've all been using characters (avatars) that don't necessarily match our own gender or ethnicity for many years. It isn't until someone gets attention on social media that it becomes news...
