Marvelous Designer Performance
show user profile  Sir_Manfred
Hey guys!

So I just recently started learning and using Marvelous Designer 6 at work for character clothes creation.
I love it so far, it's great fun, a very stable application (Hasn't crashed even once in two weeks).
Easy to learn and it's basically like sewing in real life: It's reverse UV-mapping.

However, I do find that I get a lot of performance issues after running the program for a period of time. Especially when I have several pieces of clothing.
It doesn't seem to matter if I freeze/deactivate the clothes I'm not working on at the moment, performance still takes a hit. Even with a very high particle distance.

So I'm wondering if anyone of you guys who have used Marvelous before has any experience on what Marvelous needs to perform better?
Is it more CPU cores? Faster GPU? Faster RAM? SSD rather than HDD?
I've tried to google this but I get mixed messages about this particular thing.

Just be thankful it's stable. I used marvelous designer 2 back in the day (didn't realise it's up to 6) and it was constantly crashing or fucking out (you move a vert and it goes all spastic and you have to start again).

Just got done using it for the last week or so.

Very stable. Great performance. No issues like you are mentioning. I've only ever left a session open for no more than a couple of hours be fore switching.

I always found it pretty stable too, but you can't sew in the 3D view-ports is a massive downer, I absolutely detest that 2D pattern thing.

This sounds a lot like a memory leak.

taskmgr [Enter]

Look for Marvelous Designer 6 in [Processes] tab and keep an eye on Memory usage.
If the memory usage increases gradually whilst using the program and drops to a much lower value when the softare is restarted just after it has ground to a halt or crashed, the program might be leaking memory i.e. not freeing up allocated memory as a result of poor internal housekeeping.
