Review: Marvelous Designer 6

MD6 has some great new features, including a buttons function and wrinkle smoother.

Our Verdict

While the new features make MD6 a pleasure to work with, the output often still needs reworking in other applications. Also, the pricing is too much for too little.

For

  • Buttons and buttonhole function
  • Steam wrinkle smoother

  • Avatar improvements
  • Pattern offset improvements

Against

In that time, Marvelous Designer has grown its reputation as the must-have tool for cloth and clothes simulation for films, games and animations, and Clo3D has settled into an annual release cycle of both sensible and solid releases.
