Posted by at 9:17 am on September 22, 2011

OptiTex, in partnership with DAZ 3D, has announced a version of its Dynamic Clothing Engine for Mac that leverages the 64-bit nature of OS X as well as a corresponding update for the Windows version to enable 64-bit operation. The plug-in is used with DAZ 3D​ to allow users to apply dynamic clothing sets to figures created in the program, and user can easily alter fabrics, garment sizes and style variations.

The Dynamic Clothing Control plug-in allows users to add gravity modifications and wind along with custom fabric types that can be applied to dynamic clothing items. Fine-grain controls such as the way clothing calculates self-intersection during drapes, internal pressure and other factors add realism to the way clothing hangs on a figure, including altering gravity to make the clothes float, as though underwater or in a low-gravity situation. The clothing can also be exported as part of a Collada file by converting the dynamic clothes into static morph points.

DAZ 3D is a 3D figure creation program that offers a basic version (now free for a limited time) and various upgrades and add-ons at various price points. The OptiTex clothing add-on sells for $50 (discounted for Platinum Club members). Additional clothing types are also available. Lion users are cautioned that there are still known issues with OS X 10.7.
