Plissé effects can be created using one of the following methods:

  • Method One

    Add plissé effects using iron lines. This is more suitable for larger and more regular plissé creases.

    • Add internal lines for the creases.

    • Apply the Iron property to the internal lines. Experiment with values between 0-180 degrees to achieve the results you want.

    • Lower the grid size to better simulate the creases. (Lower grid size means more details.)

    • Adjust drape using the 3D Styling tools.

  • Method Two

    Add plissé effects using depth maps like normal and displacement maps. This is more suitable for smaller or more irregular plissé creases.

    • Create a normal and displacement map in external image-editing software like Photoshop.

    • A displacement map should be a striped image with different shades of gray to create different heights for the creases.

    • Displacement map effect can only be seen with ray trace rendering.

    • Use the image editor to adjust the size of the plissé and use the V-Ray preview feature to gauge the size and depth values for the map.
