    Hi Stephanie, 

    We can adjust the direction of the trim in the trim image editor.

    Select the trim from your material tab. On the right-side context view, select the diffuse image editor.

    Use the drop-down error to see more options. Click flip vertical or flip horizontal as needed.

    You can also use the rotation tab in the image editor to rotate the image 180 degrees for the same effect.

    When working with this style, remember the “hide background” option on this style of trim. This will make the transparent areas of the trim make the fabric underneath it transparent, for an easy scalloped edge.


    Good luck, 

    Zisie

    Thank you Zisie! 

    This tip was awesome! It really helped. Thank you for answering so many of all our questions on the community forum; I am so appreciative. 

    Unfortunately, I got so bummed when I put the veil on her and her hair disappeared due to collision issues between patterns pieces that fall on the head. Do you know if there is a work-around for this? Or if future versions might solve eventually?

    Hi Stephanie, 

    The hair disappearing is a result of the current behavior of transparency in the software. With fabric that is transparent on the face and back, the 3D window is not able to show some attributes and results in the hair disappearing.

    A second detail to note is that the hair automatically is removed from the avatar if a pattern piece is placed on the head. The hair on the avatar does not have a real impact on the fabric and will clip through material. To stop the visual effect of collision between the pattern piece and the hair, the hair is automatically removed.

    We can work around in a few steps. First, we can place the pattern piece in a different cluster (I recommend the shoulder cluster). Next, dress the piece in 3D. Once dressed, the hair will clip through the fabric in some locations. Using the 3D styling tools, select the “move” button and the pattern piece. Turn on the 3D gizmo and adjust the placement of the pattern piece to not show collision from that angle.

    Lock the pattern piece and finish the simulation. Note, the pattern will appear to float off of the head.

    Open the Vray preview window and render to see the hair shown through the pattern piece.



    Good luck!

    Wow. So advanced. Well Zisie, I just read your message on the hair/veil solution. I can honestly say is just SO SO like me to come up with a problem that my current skill level cannot solve!!! Lol. 🤣🤣🤣🤯🥴

    I am going to work on this for sure when I circle back to this project. I will post results if I complete.

    No! I will post my results WHEN I achieve this. I will dedicate myself to master this because when I do, all headwear will be achievable for me.

    Thanks for the support team! 📣
