Additional Details

  • The use of this material set should be fairly straightforward, but a few things are worth mentioning:
    • The eyelet dress style includes two different transparency options. The gauze material preset gives you a translucent look to the dress material that is typical of the cotton fabrics typical of most eyelet materials. This material is not too revealing when worn in most lighting, but if you need a fully opaque material you may choose the “opaque” material preset that is included. This simply swaps out the transparency map for one that is fully opaque everywhere except where the eyelet holes are placed. If you want to eliminate the holes in the material as well, just remove the transparency map after applying either preset.
    • The eyelet style can be easily changed to be a colored dress by simply changing the diffuse color to the color you desire. Using the same technique, some very nice effects can be created with the denim and gingham dress style and the polka dot dress style.
    • The Jungle foil print can be changed to a more traditional colored print by setting the specular color to white and then setting the diffuse color to your desired color. When removing the foil style, you may also want to remove the displacement map for the MainTop and LowerSkirt materials because printed cloth wouldn’t have raised areas for the colors. You may also want to reduce the glossiness and the specular strength to a lower value (like 30% for both), unless you want shiny cloth. If you are trying to create your own reflective foil style, set a darker tone for the diffuse color and a brighter, more saturated version with the same general hue for the specular color. You can also create an interesting appearance by using a darker color under tone of one color with a brighter over tone of a contrasting color.
  • One final tip: It is possible to create some unique shoe styles for the bow heel pumps by mixing and matching the included materials and textures in different combinations. Experimenting can make these cool pumps even more versatile!
