Hi cherry,

I'm confused about how to use the new S4S Harmony. I wanted to make a T-Shirt, but I'm not satisfied. As always I have major issues with the shadows/folds, whatever. I was wondering, if I did export the right file.


I exported Diffuse and Shadow and got a T-Shirt, but it looked strange at the edge, especially at the neck.



Did I use the right files? Or is it "normal"?

Have you read through this tutorial?
I was playing around with recoloring toddler clothes as well and found the meshes so difficult to work with!
But the normal map should only be changed if you took away some parts of the original mesh, like a pocket or other adornment. If you only recolour the garment as it is, you only change the diffuse.
I found that the shadow file helps you to recognize the ends of the garment.
But even though I was very careful I always ended up with "bleeding" onto the skin of the model.

No I didn't. Well I did, but it's not up to date, so it doesn't help. I tried to put the "normal" file as a second layer over the "diffuse" and the texture, but I really don't know, if I have to do this, or if the shadows/details will show anyway.

That is true, it is quite outdated,and I did not have the energy to read through all the questions by other creators.
May be Conny will be of more help to you.

Well, I cannot help with this, heheheheeh

If you need to run batch fixes or merge files, though, I'm your human!  :D

xmiramira has several recoloring tutorials available (she's on Tumblr and YouTube and here: http://www.xmiramira.com/

She has an interesting style of instruction, but this is some very basic instruction. I found it and put it aside when I decided I'd like to try my hand at some simple recolors (I'll leave all the more advanced stuff up to you!).

This is a way to not use s4s for the recoloring, but rather the importing/exporting of package files... It might be helpful :D

She uses s4s and other apps together... If I recall correctly, she uses a separate graphics program to do recolors so that she does not lose the texture portion of clothing cc... look at this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=me5T-2F5j0E&t=2563s



Thank you, Crissi, for my beautiful signature <3
