Why Use Marvelous Designer?

Marvelous Designer is a cutting-edge software for quickly creating dynamic 3D clothes for your 3D models.

It is used in 3D games (i.e., video games, computer games, virtual worlds), animated commercials and for 3D animations and films (especially for digital doubles).

Traditional old-school 3D modeling and sculpting techniques require hours upon hours of hard work to produce perfectly real-looking wrinkles and folds in the garments. Additionally, you need to rig and animate the clothes and the results are never as convincing as with Marvelous.

  • With Marvelous Designer you can save time and money. No need for sculpting and re-sculpting wrinkles every single time you change your 3D avatar’s pose, or when your art director changes his mind about the clothing design.
  • Animating clothes in Marvelous Designer is easy and fast! You can import your animated models and even add wind to blow your clothes and capture realistic fabric movement.
  • Marvelous Designer perfectly fits into your production pipeline – you can import and export data between various modeling and animation software programs, such as Maya, 3DS Max, Softimage, Modo, and ZBrush.
  • In addition, all your UVs are laid out for you in MD which makes texturing your 3D garments easy.
  • Oh, and BTW… You don’t need to know how to sew in order to use MD – our Marvelous Designer training teaches you all about virtual 3D clothes making.

What Do Leading Studios Say About Marvelous Designer?

Marvelous Designer Clothes in The Hobbit (WETA Digital)

For The Hobbit we wanted to create a larger number of clothes that would be indistinguishable from the behaviour of real clothes when simulated. To do this we chose a pattern-based approach at the modelling stage that could accurately create the volume of the real clothing.

-James Moore, Senior Modeller, Weta Digital

Marvelous Designer Software Used in Assassins Creed Unity by Ubisoft

Marvelous Designers simulations are better than any other package on the market. I think Marvelous designer made the same type of impression to us artists as Zbrush did back in the days. It’s so powerful that it completely changed our workflow for the better..

– Boyon Raphael, Senior character artist in Ubisoft Montreal

Marvelous Designer 3D Digital Cloth Simulation Software Used in Assassin's Creed by Ubisoft 4

I definitely recommend Marvelous Designer to cg artists who are looking to save lots of time and take the guesswork out of creating credible cloth. Marvelous Designer is a very consistent and easy way of getting ultra-realistic clothing quickly which is extremely important on productions.

– Vince Rizzi, Senior character artist in Ubisoft Montreal

Marvelous Designer 3D Clothes Making Software Used in Assassin's Creed by Ubisoft Studio

I really enjoyed the fact that the simulated cloth models automatically had UVs right from the start, which is basically your pattern you built the garment with. This was useful for me in such cases where I would apply patterns/fabric details to the garment or paint stuff like stitching in Photoshop and apply it to the 3d model afterwards as a map..

– Vince Rizzi, Senior character artist in Ubisoft Montreal

MarvelousDesigner Clo3D Software Used in NIKE THE LAST GAME

Marvelous Designer has become a fundamental part of our toolset for creating digital garments and cloth simulations, I’m yet to see another system that allows you to model and visualize how a garment will look in its draped form. Also the way it handles multiple layers and detail, with such speed, accuracy and stability is simply amazing..

– Jamie Franks, Lead Effects Artist at Passion Pictures London

Marvelous Designer Clothing created by KONAMI - METAL GEAR SOLID V

Virtual representation of clothing has always been a big challenge in the area of modeling. We have been widely researching from multiple cloth simulation tools to 3D scanning system, but MD was the only product to fully meet our requirements from quality, functionality, speed, and data compatibility. The most powerful advantage I would say is the overall features..

Marvelous Designer can be a very fast prototyping tool, a way to get a quick start on clothing or a robust simulation tool when there is the need to go deep in realism.
My main issue prior to CGElves was the lack of deep learning material.

CG Elves’ Marvelous Designer Training Program is the most complete resource to learn Marvelous Designer.

It provides a soft learning curve that gets you from learning the basics of the software to creating your own 3D clothing in a matter of hours.
As a professional user that needed to learn MD5 quickly, this program got me up to speed with industry standards quality in less than a week. I highly recommend it !”

Thanks so much for a wonderful product.
It was money well spent.

Art of Juergen Stein 3D Character Artist (SevenSins #3 Luxuria)

Actually I’m not a cheerleader for most the tuts out there, but the CG Elves are a real time saver
Lots of useful techniques and tips for problemsolving for all kinds of clothes.

I started (using) MD one year ago; the available training was spread all over the internet and the results in most cases looked like my stuff…weird, no pro level, and no idea how to improve it .

I bought the cgelves training and its exactly what you need if you have no real world sewing experience like me. Every parameter of the software is really well explained.”

About Our Marvelous Designer Training

Our Marvelous Designer training program is divided into 2 sections; a complete beginners introduction to the Marvelous Designer software and step by step workshops covering the entire workflow of creating intermediate and advanced 3D garments.

The training we provide is easy for anyone to follow, even if you are not a native English speaker and have zero experience with MD.
We designed this training in a logically organized and orderly flow. It is a detailed (yet condensed) step-by-step training, free of unnecessary fluff.

You do not need to waste time using any other garment pattern-drafting software, as some traditional seamstresses advocate.
We teach you how to interactively design and modify clothes in MD.

Regardless of the version of MD you use, the principals we teach you of how to create clothing remain the same. 

Like in the real world, all clothes are made based on one of the basic types of patterns.
So, once you understand the fundamentals of how to create all the basic types of clothing, you’ll be able to easily create any clothes you want.
