Hi everyone. I'm new to dimension but am well versed in Photoshop and Illustrator. I'm looking to create some curtain 3d objects for Dimension. I'd like to be able to create my own so I can control/customize the look. is there a video or some other helpful tutorial that will help me get started?
Dimension is a rendor tool not designed for making models
You can download the models or build them yourself in Photoshop, Blender, Maya etc
Yes that what I would like to do. Build them in photoshop and then turn them into object files for Dimension. Are there any tutorials that might help with creating drapery/fabric images and then turning them into 3D?
I usually use Illustrator to make shapes and then extrude them in photoshop.. then export them as a 3d model that can be dropped straight into dimension.
There is a really good class on Skillshare that I learned how to do it from..
I've actually made curtain rods in Photoshop but don't know of any tutorials... the Photoshp forum would be a better place to ask & include some example images if you want a better chance of getting an answer
If you want realistic - make them in Blender and use the cloth simulator. There are a few tutorials around. The attached video link is for v2.79 but the cloth simulator is in the current 2.81 version also.
For texturing you could make the textures in Photoshop , personally I would use Substance. Substance Source has many pre-made materials that are compatible with Dimension.
