The Dynamic Clothing plug-in for DAZ Studio is a plug-in to enable DAZ Studio users to work with cloth which has been designed to respond realistically to the 3D figure's movements and poses. Once the cloth material has been fitted to a 3D model and posed the material can be processed by a draping simulation engine to “drape” or “relax” the cloth material to the model and its position, based on the materials own parameters and outside environmental factors such as gravity and movements.
DAZ Studio installs to your system with the free version of the Dynamic Clothing plug-in included. You do not have to buy anything further to use Dynamic Clothing in DAZ Studio. However, there is a Control version of the plug-in, that you can purchase, from the Daz3D website. The Control version differs, from the free version, in that it allows the user to adjust how gravity and wind affect the cloth, set collision tolerance, internal pressure, and simulation settings.
The Dynamic Clothing plug-in uses technology from OptiTex, a company which specializes in 2D and 3D CAD/CAM Fashion Design Software for the clothing and textile industry.
