Hey guys-

Just downloaded Seamless 3D again and have some questions:

Is is possible to import characters and clothing and dress my characters using Seamless?? Asking because I am making a 3D animation film that takes place in the mid to late 1960s. It's a film about the life of Jim Morrison {of the Doors}. So I need to be very accurate. Been using both Mixamo Fuse and Autodesk character generator to create the characters. But here is the clincher. Part of this film takes place between 1947-49 and 1960. And I'm having a heck of a time finding things that should be pretty basic. For instance a nurse uniform from the 1940s. A nun's habit {neither Fuse or Character Generator have either}. A policeman's uniform with hat {Fuse has it, Character Generator doesn't}. A plaid jumper dress {neither of them have this}. Olive drabs {Autodesk has them and Fuse doesn't}, housedress {neither of them have that} etc etc etc etc...I know that most of you are prbly shhoting for the ultra-modern and unreal. But is this possible??

PS: Attached is a photo of a vintage housedress from the 1940s to 50s. For clothing from the 1940s to 1960 check out the old "Dennis The Menace" TV show...the live version with Jay North.

Hi Raven
You can import cloths you have made with Seamless3d.
This is something I want to show how to do in my upcoming tutorials on making animated movies.
I will begin by showing how to make ultra simple animated characters, importing them into a scene and setting up cameras to get the fundamentals established. I will then move on to showing how to make separate body parts and clothing items and how they can be imported to allow for for mixing and matching. In making cloths I will again begin with the most basic types of cloths and progress onto making features such as pockets and collars to make them more interesting.
You should be able to make just about any kind of clothing but different types will pose different challenges. A lot will depend on how much time you invest and your level of skill.
The new version of Seamless I have been working on this year will soon be ready to upload. It has had a lot of loose ends resolved and a number of important bugs fixed.
Best wishes
