This course covers how to incorporate Marvelous Designer into cloth workflows for real-time character creation, from software basics to advanced techniques for creating realistic and stylized garments. The course will begin with an introduction to the software by creating modern, contemporary garments and then a deep dive into project workflow for highly detailed clothing of various materials using Marvelous Designer, Zbrush, and Unreal Engine. Not only will students learn how to use the software, but gain a deeper understanding of how to create realistic and appealing garments for AAA games. Students will learn advanced techniques for Marvelous Designer, how to iterate between Marvelous Designer and Zbrush, how seams, stitching, and folds can aid in realism and appeal, and tricks for retopologizing cloth for quality bakes and animation. Students will complete multiple portfolio pieces, including contemporary costuming and fantasy garments based on provided concept art.

I never used Marvelous Designer before starting this course, but I felt very comfortable using the program by the end of the curriculum. Clothing pieces that seemed much too complicated to make are now much easier to break down and construct.
Really helped to bring my technical skills on a new level.
The best improvement for me was the clarity in pipeline and technique. Typically Marvelous Designer tutorials can have a lot of technical secrets hidden but Laura shows everything and it helps immensely.
