Sneak peek: Marvelous Designer 7

Thursday, August 17th, 2017 | Posted by Jim Thacker

CLO Virtual Fashion has posted a teaser video for Marvelous Designer 7, the upcoming release of its popular 3D clothing design tool.

The new version, which is due to ship in September, adds a new modular system for assembling clothing, a new decorative stitching system, accurately simulated zippers, and support for wind animation.

Some nice new dynamics options, plus a modular clothing assembly system
We can’t see any detailed information about Marvelous Designer 7 on the product website, so if you’ve watched the video above, you know everything about the new features that we do.

Highlights include a new flattening system for conforming clothing panels to the form of a 3D character, plus new options for creating decorative stitching and adding zippers to clothing.

The zips come with quite detailed physics: just one of a number of new dynamics features in the update, including support for wind animation, and the option to pin parts of a garment during simulation.

There is also a new Modular Mode, for assembling 3D garmets from a library of parts like collars and cuffs; and a number of new options for manipulating 2D clothing parts.

And blink and you’ll miss it, but at 2:30, you can see what appears to be a scripting window running Python scripts, so presumably Python support has also been added, at least for Enterprise licences.

Pricing and availability
Marvelous Designer 7 is due to ship in September 2017. CLO Virtual Fashion hasn’t announced an exact date.

The software is currently available to pre-order, with anyone buying a perpetual licence of Marvelous Designer 6 getting a free upgrade once version 7 ships.

The latest release, Marvelous Designer 6.5, is available for Windows 7+ and OS X 10.8+. A Linux version is available to enterprise customers. A permanent licence costs $550.
