Marvelous Designer

“Marvelous Designer allows you to create beautiful 3D virtual clothing with
our cutting-edge design software.”  http://www.marvelousdesigner.com/product/overview

Marvelous designer allows artists to virtually re-create clothes and materials quickly and easily and gives the ability to edit and drape the garments onto 3D models using high fidelity simulation. All based on the art of pattern making and sewing, allowing for realistic and highly detailed fabrics and garments to be created, cutting down on the time it would have taken to model the clothing garments by hand.

MD has been used by top games studios and can be seen in big screen animation films including:

Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed:

Passion Pictures, ‘Nike’ the Last Game and London Olympics

Weta Digital, The Hobbit

An article from 3d artist on how Weta used Marvelous Designer for The Hobbit:

I played around with Marvelous Designer last semester to create pillows and bedsheets so I’ve decided that I’ll used it again this semester for creating our girl characters clothing: Tights, Jumper, Poncho. Below are a few tutorials I’ve come across which will be useful…
