Hi...

I just started using Marvelous designer few weeks ago. I have never used blender or any other similar program but I wish to learn. I started making clothes for Sansar and I wish to do the same in Second Life.

All tutorials I can find are really old and have no idea where to starts. I could really use some help and any advice is appritiated. If you know the steps and what is necessary to upload Marvelous designer clothes to Second Life or if you can hook me up with some latest tutorials.

Thank you xox

So you know -- it is MUCH MUCH more difficult to make clothes in Second Life than in Sansar. Most of the hard work is done for you in Sansar (do I hear clapping?) where here there are many more steps and much more knowledge needed.    I have been making furniture, jewelry, shoes,  and poses in Blender for seven years or so and still do not make clothing in SL --- while I have many hundreds  of wearables still up in Sansar.   

The first step would be to start learning Blender. The second step would be to look into Avastar --- but that is a long way down the road. 

 

If you are making clothes for fun and enjoyment I suggest that sticking to Sansar  is a good move for now :D.   I loved making clothes in MD for Sansar as I could skip the part that seemed way too much like work.  There is also a HUGE amount of competition here in SL so much more difficult to sell your items once made. 

 

Best of success in whatever you decide to do.

Thank you for your replay... I realized that once I opened the blender lol ... Is something I would love to learn and do down the line so any advice, link and tutorial is much appritiated...

What is the next step once clothes are made in MD... export it to Blender, maya, Zbrush, SubstancePainter? What is the easiest way?

I hear words like retopping, baking and can find tutorials for bits and pieces but is hard to conect them all...

I made a series of Blender tutorials for SL but they are in 2.79 so not the new interface.  They can give you a background, workflow and theory but not much about where menus are these days. They are here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8u00idO1kA

 

Beyond that I can't help.  I can rig simple things but anything advanced like a dress -- only some ideas from watching videos.  Looking through the Avastar tutorials would probably be a good start. But you won't be ready for Avastar until you know the basics of Blender :D.  Good luck!
