Has anyone tried importing MD clothing with animation into Carrara? I know how to do it in Daz Studio using a script with the morph loader. But what about Carrara?

    hi,

    You should consult 3DLust,
    quite a few renders are in C3DE that has clothing created by 3DLust in Marvelous designer and from what I am seeing, beautiful clothing and art can be made paired Carrara and MD.

    If you know how to get it in to Studio save out as, well, What version of carrara? C8.5 can open a studio 4.5 DUF.

    Yes, you need Fenric's MDD importer / exporter. Works great with Marvelous Designer.

    The MDD Importer / Exporter works great with Carrrara 8.1, but not 8.5. I just bought Marvelous Designer and did several tests. I could not get Carrara 8.5/MDD Importer to import files generated from the Marvelous Designer MDD export options (general MDD or Maya/3DMax).

    Please explain "doesn't work"... there is an issue with Marvelous Designer 3 files in 8.5 because the normals are wrong - Marvelous Designer 3 exports objects inside-out and Carrara 8.5 doesn't automatically fix them. I have a beta patch for that - email me your MCX file as proof-of-purchase and I'll send it to you.

    Sorry for delayed response. Finally had time to go back to playing with this. Before I was not getting the 'MDDFigure' listed as an instance and therefore was not seen when importing to Carrara 8.5 Pro. However, now I cannot recreate the problem. I exported Marvelous Designer 3 MDD sequence using Maya / 3DMax option and this appears to import fine in Carrara 8.1 as well as 8.5.
