Additional Details

* The use of this material set should be fairly straightforward, but a few things are worth mentioning:

  • All of these styles are easy to recolor by simply changing the diffuse color and specular color.
    • When adjusting the pleated style, darker diffuse with a brighter specular color should give good results. Many of the included presets create an interesting appearance by using a darker color under tone of one color with a brighter over tone of a contrasting color.
    • The sequins use a very dark shade of gray for the diffuse and then a fully saturated, bright specular color controlled by a map to create the sequin effect. Feel free to play with both, but changing the specular color should create color of dress you want.
    • This style really needs dark shades to look right. It is using an over-powered normal map to create the effect and it kind of breaks down as the colors get brighter. Changing the diffuse color is enough to alter this one.
    • This style has two maps included, a multi-colored beadwork version that is simply called “FVD_Beaded,” and a white version you can colorize called “FVD_Beaded –Colorize.” You will probably get the best results by working with the “colorize” version and only changing the diffuse color.
    • You can get some interesting effects by using a shade of gray in the diffuse, putting a bright color for your specular color, removing all the specular maps, and setting the specular strength to 100%. Here are two examples, one with a gray value of 30, 30, 30 and one with a value of 128, 128, 128.
    • The same methods will work on the shoes as on the dress style they match.
    • 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. The included textures will work for either shoe. Experimenting can make these cool pumps even more versatile!
