Hey everyone, hope you are having a wonderful day! I have trouble creating a seamless texture for clothing. I´m using Gimp so here´s how the workflow goes:
- I get a picture of the fabric I want the clothes to have
- I load it into Gimp, click on Filters - Map - Make Seamless
- Gimp turns the picture into a Seamless Map
When I use it on my unwrapped UV map of the clothing I made (in this case a swimsuit) its not very good looking. As you can see, it creates a patter which is a circle with highlighted area around it and it just doesn´t look good.
Is there a way to create a texture using Gimp that won´t be doing that? Also as you can see on the breasts, the swimwears folds are stretching and deforming the UV map so the texture stretches as well. Is there a way to prevent that from happening and have the same amount of detail in the stretched areas as is in the lower part of the clothing for example?
I am posting a picture down below, please let me know what solutions you can come up with! Thank you.
