With MD it is possible to model virtual 3D clothing garments and 3D cloth for bedding, table clothes, curtains and also other drapery. The Marvelous software makes it easy for one to drape and drop cloth; whether it is draped upon a 3D avatar, hung from a clothes hanger, dangling from a chair or thrown onto the floor.

With Marvelous Designer you may invariably replicate real life-like fabric properties.
Never before was it really easy to produce those lovely real-looking wrinkles, creases, pleats and folds with your virtual garments - without hours and hours of studying cloth anatomy and tiresome sculpting and re-sculpting wrinkles each time you improve your 3D avatar's pose.

Traditional 3D modeling and sculpting techniques require hours of hard work to produce all of the lovely tiny wrinkles, bends, pleats and folds and many practice and talent to get it looking convincingly real results.

Marvelous Designer simulates the clothing on the avatar, meaning, any time you change your Avatar's pose, the garments will realistically hang to complement its pose.

You are able to pluck, roll-up, fold and twist to arrange how a garment 'flows' and in many cases utilize wind tool to blow and further transform your capes, dresses and gowns to quickly create beautiful dynamic looking results quicker than in the past.

Just forget about rigging and manually having to animate your clothes - Marvelous Designer also supports clothing animation, not only draping the garments!
It's simple to achieve virtual cloth animation and capture realistic movement of material, in the event the clothes are draped onto moving characters. Simply import your animated model or perhaps an animation file (for example Maya cache, Point cache 2, MDD cache - standard or from Maya or 3ds Max) to animate your garments. Hit the record button and MD will animate the cloth to suit your needs!

Whether your 3D avatars stand on the top of a wind blown mountain, dance, sit, do yoga, walk, run, jump, kick, leap or perform summersault midair - the MD Garments will realistically move with them, creating the right view in the garment to match the movement.

Marvelous thus remains the ideal solution for 3D games, commercials as well as animated films.

It is usually especially helpful for those times you'll want to build a digital double character for the film project.

These digital versions from the characters are utilized in place of real actors (like a virtual stuntmen) in situations where it could be too dangerous to employ a real person or if it is not really possible to shoot the scene using a live actor.
Digital doubles must move and behave like the live action character, indistinguishable from the real thing.

This means their clothes need to be dynamic, move with the character, within a normal looking way. With new realistic folds and creases each and every motion...
With Marvelous Designer software there is a easy solution to this problem.
