Hi everyone, I am Clive and I am a 67 year old retired curtain making teacher.
I am completely new to Blender. I have some experience with Photoshop and a little experience with Adobe After Effects. I carry out graphics support for my ex students when they wish me to add pictures of curtains to pictures of windows and add furniture to rooms for interior designers. I am a specialist in pleating curtains to the design of the fabric but the problem I have is that I can not draw 3D images of the 4 pleats which are most common nor can I get the fabric itself to fold into the pleating arrangements.
The first two pictures below show what I mean by pleating to the design of the fabric and the four most common pleats which I need to depict in these images. The third is simply a composite of JPEG images to show the simple work that I do to help people. I would like to get much better and really the images need to be in 3D, rotated and scaled/warped to fit into the windows in the pictures I am supplied with from my students.
If anyone can help then I would be very grateful. Thank you ~ Clive
