Virtual Fashion for Poser Settings

Friday, July 28th, 2006

I just got an e-mail asking about the settings I used with Virtual Fashion for Poser to get a cloth simulation that didn’t take days to run as mentioned in my earlier Virtual Fashion for Poser post. In case anyone else was wondering here are the settings I used…

The key things I’ve found to get a fast simulation are:

  • Make the item bigger than the model you want to fit it to so there is a gap between the figure and the virtual fashion figure.
  • Scale the character down in the first frame and then scale them up till they fit the outfit. In the above example Victoria is scaled to 83% normal size on the x and z scales in the first frame and scaled up to 100% by frame 30.
  • No poke through in the keyframes you set up to do the fitting.
  • No thin cuts running through the fabric (eg slit up the side of a dress).
  • Simple smooth animation not running too fast.
