For information about editing puffy garments, expand the following:
If puffy fabrics do not appear true-to-life after simulation, you may need to adjust the firmness of the fill to achieve the desired effect. Puffy fabrics applied across the chest may appear flatter due to the pressure applied.
The following image displays the effects of a combination of selected Puffy Firmness values (on the Y axis) and Puffy Thickness values (on the X axis).
Quilting lines that are closer together may simulate puffy differently from a wider quilt on a fabric with the exact same Puffy Firmness and Puffy Thickness value.
The following image displays a garment with a Puffy Thickness of 3 on the body, while the forearms have a Puffy Thickness of 10 to achieve the same appearance on both.
To achieve similar puffy appearance on a closer quilt:
If the Materials tab is not already open, on the Resources tabs, click Materials.
On the Materials tab, go to the Fabrics section.
Hover over the puffy fabric thumbnail, and click . A menu is displayed.
Click Clone Fabric. The fabric is cloned.
Hover over the newly cloned fabric thumbnail, and click . A menu is displayed.
Click Rename. The Rename Material dialog box is displayed.
Type in the chosen name, and click OK.
Click the newly cloned fabric.
Go to the Context view, and click Physics. The Physical Properties dialog box is displayed.
In Puffy Firmness, change the value.
On the Main toolbar, click Dress to check the simulation result.
Repeat steps 9-12 to adjust firmness as needed.If quilting lines are too close to each other on a pattern piece, a puffy fabric is not simulated.
Due to the amount of processing power puffy garments use, the response of some 3D styling tools may be slow. For precision adjustments on a puffy garment, use the 3D gizmo with the 3D styling tools.
VStitcher includes enhanced capabilities for editing puffy garments. For more information, refer to Editing Puffy Garments.
