This release includes the following new and improved features:

Integrated Search Engine

The integrated search engine enables users to search articles and material inside the help center without exiting VStitcher.

Olivia as Default Avatar

Replacing the current default avatar Deborah with Olivia. Olivia is now default avatar when users first open VStitcher, when there is no avatar, or when the avatar in the file has been deleted.

Piece Rotation by Edge

This feature allows users to rotate a piece vertically or horizontally easily using the piece edges. Users can also rotate a grain line perpendicular or parallel to an edge.

For more information, refer to Piece Rotation by Edge

Grading of buttons and Trims

This feature enables users to grade 3D trim locations manually instead of the automatic 3D trim grading which provides users with better control over trim locations and smoother process when grading.

For more information, refer to Grade Points

Control Fabric Position Between Sized

This feature enables users to adjust the fabric texture of garments accurately to each size and have better control over the appearance of garments in different sizes.

For more information, refer to Horizontal Contextual Menu Details

Pressure Map Animation

The pressure map displays pressure points frame by frame when an avatar or garment are in animation.

Print to File

Garments are now printed with the relevant information for pattern shape. Print to File enhancements also elevate the exporting workflow.

For more information, refer to Print to File

Export Quads

This feature provides the users with the option to export 3D garments with quads topology. Quads topology feature makes the process of defining and selecting areas easier for editing and simulating purposes.

For more information, refer to Editing 3D Object Export Settings

Weld Stitches on Export

This feature allows users to weld garment geometries in stitches from edge to edge into a unified object. When the garment is exported and edited on third party soft wares it will stay intact and not break into different garment pieces, which saves time and effort when simulating a garment using different soft wares. (This feature is available for garments only, does not include avatar or accessories which would be exported as separate objects).

For more information, refer to Editing 3D Object Export Settings

Export Pack UV

This feature provides the ability to use the 2D window grid space economically to achieve higher resolution when a 3D garment or object is exported and imported. The pieces are considered to exist in the 2D window inside bounding boxes, considering the space each bounding box occupies. The pieces are then packed together in a way that uses as less grid space as possible.

For more information, refer to Editing 3D Object Export Settings

Avatar Body Resolution

This feature allows users to smooth the appearance of garments on an avatar’s body and hide any avatar facets that affect the garment appearance. When this feature is enabled, snapshots and rendering for avatars will include the high quality, smooth appearance of avatar body and garments. This feature is only available for parametric and BW avatars.

For more information, refer to Adjusting the 3D Window Environment

Share Quality Standards

This version includes enhancements and new abilities added to the share quality standards to Stylezone feature.

For more information, refer to Sharing Quality Standards Styles

Quality Standards Configuration

This feature allows users to configure quality standards as they desire before sharing.

For more information, refer to Visual Quality Standards Configuration
