I recently noticed that in Version 4, the material type dropdown menu does not have the Cloth type anymore.

I can't find anything on the maxwell forum about it, so posting here (better anyway).

 

Im looking to get a velvet cloth, and I thought using a type would get me started.

 

Thanks,

 

 

Des

Hi Des,

 

I don't remember a "cloth" type in MXED 3 or 4. Can you refresh my memory?

 

Since you are on Maxwell 4, you might try the online browser :) The files are downloaded to the location specified in the Resource Manager.

I probably imagined that I used it in the past but no worries..

It's still mentioned in the manual for v3 and v4 though.

 

 

Cheers,

maxwell drapery preview.jpeg Des,

 

Could it be that your memory of "cloth" is the "drapery" preview type, rather than a preset material type?

Thanks but no Shibui, I use mxed every day so I'm very familiar with that  ^_^

 

I don't think I've gone completely mad just yet, see the extract from the manual.... :wacko:

Poked around some more and couldn't find any reference to cloth type preset.

 

Here's a resource that gives a pretty good run down on creating fabrics from scratch in MXED. I know that's not what you're looking for but a deeper dive might do the trick in the end.
