The term “fabrics” in 3D could refer to multiple different things. Any textures in the Real View (including, but not limited to: uniforms, helms, flag silks, flag poles, drums, and skin color) are all considered fabrics for the sake of simplicity. This means that with the right software, you could manipulate the fabrics we provide to customize the look and feel of performers and equipment in the 3D Real View.
To create a fabric for use in 3D, you must have an image editing program. We recommend GIMP or Photoshop.
While there are many image editing programs available, we recommend using GIMP because of it’s cost effectiveness (read: free!) and power. This does not mean that GIMP is the only way to go about editing fabrics for use in the Pyware 3D Real View. If you are more comfortable using a different image manipulation software, by all means, please do so. From this point forward, these instructions will detail creating a fabric in GIMP.
Download and install GIMP for your operating system:
Once the download is complete, be sure the run the installer to install and set up GIMP for use.
After you have GIMP installed, you can start following the steps to creating a custom uniform by clicking on the sub-topics on the left. The first step would be to Open the Template File for editing.
