EA's Pocket Dress

So here comes my first freebie :happybounce:
This dress was made in Marvelous Designer 8 for the Genesis8Female Base.

If you are familiar with this software you will know what to do with the file.

UPDATE:  now included the .obj file and a working UV  (I hope)
My biggest THANK YOU to SilentLadyGTA for her helpful critique, hints and advice :heart:

Tip1: the particle distance here is 10mm for faster simulation, you have to change it to your taste
Tip2: if you bring it in DAZ Studio or another software don't forget to use a subdivision modifier ;)

There are no restrictions of using this file but you are not allowed to redistribute or resell the model.
A mention and a link to your work would be fine.

This is awesome :D nice job :D

Have you by any chance figured out how to save the mat names into daz or poser?

Enchanted-April's avatar
Thank you and yes, I did ;)
1) all mat names has to be one word, if you need more use an underscore
2) if you export as an OBJ use the "Object (selected)" option and tick "select all patterns", "select all Graphics and Trims", "single object", "weld", "thin" AND the most important: "unified UV coordinates" and finally the "cm DAZ Studio"
That I figured out after some trial and error ;)
All the texture options I leave unticked because I texture in DAZ so far...
Good luck :D

Yeah, I might have used a space on some of mine. I tend to only use one word for brevity but have occasionally used more. I just ignore it and redo it Daz if there's something I don't like. :D But I'll use the underscore from now on! Thanks for this. 

By the way, I always used export 'Thick' before because for close ups the cloth just looked too papery, but I've been playing with the 'Then, Weld' lately. I never use dforce though, it's wayyyyyyyyyyy too slow compared to MD

How do I fit this to the model I am working with?

It is my first time working with a .obj file

Enchanted-April's avatar
Are you asking about the default obj that is included in my zip or the obj that you exported from Marvelous Designer?
Renulen57's avatar

The one in your .zip

Enchanted-April's avatar
I'm really sorry. Unfortunately I don't have the skills yet to make an obj conform to a figure and to give some advice. That's why I put the default obj in the zip and not a .duf file. It's all about rigging and weightmapping and the transfer tool. Some people here are able to do this and were asking me for the obj. If you have time and nerves enough you could search for the transfer tool in the DAZ manual or over at Youtube and try it yourself. Good luck!
A good starting point is to load the G8F Base into Daz without any moving and then my .obj (Files/Import/OBJ) That loads the dress directly on the girl how you can see in the image above... But it will not follow her moves because it isn't rigged etc... 
All the pics with the dress draped result from fitting in Marvelous Designer and bring it then into DAZ as a posed .obj
