I find MAX’s Garment Maker extremely difficult to use; it’s very counter-intuitive (it probably doesn’t help that MAX’s help files leave out a lot of critical details when it comes to application of Garment Maker), and I can never get the sizing right because I can’t see the actual shape the final product will be on the character until after all of the pieces have been laid out. It’s all shot-in-the-dark trial and error.
I prefer to make Cloth objects out of regular geometry so that I know what I’m going to get without all of that guesswork.
One unfortunate side effect of this, however, is that I seem quite unable to make seams. But those are fairly necessary in some cases.
So…what can I do? Is there any way that I haven’t found to tell the Cloth modifier that certain edges should behave as seams?
I’m on MAX 2013; it’s what I have.
