Smocking Effect

This video was recorded using Version 2021.1.

Smocking effect can be added using 3 methods.

  1. Adding an additional pattern piece with an image of smocking over existing shirring done on a garment. This is more suitable for simpler smocking effects.
      • The pattern created will need to be 100% transparent so that you will be able to see the shirring details below.
      • The smocking embroidery must be edited and added in as a separate image.
      • Lock the shirred patterns before simulating the new patterns above it to maintain the shirring effect created.

 

  1. Using depth maps like normal and displacement maps for both shirring and smocking effects. This is more suitable for complicated smocking effects.
      • You will need to generate the normal and displacement maps in external photo-editing or 3D software or by scanning using a Vizoo scanner.
      • We apply these maps on a flat pattern piece
      • Effects of the displacement map will only be visible in ray trace rendering output.

 

  1. Applying the smocking detail as an edge assignable trim for curved patterns. This method also utilises depth maps applied on flat pattern pieces.
      • You will need to create a seamless trim image in external photo-editing software.
      • Use auto-generate depth maps to create the raised effect or generate a normal and displacement map externally.
      • Effects of the displacement map will only be visible in ray trace rendering output.
