Simple Gimp tutorial for retexturing mesh clothing kits in SL (part 1)

  • ℹ️ Published 7 years ago

This is a bare bones simple tutorial (without much detail going into the finished dress) to show quickly how the layers can work in Gimp for retexturing a mesh clothing kit in Second Life. Bear in mind of course that if I was going to sell this I would have put more thought and detail into it's design. (opposing belt color and lapel area etc) A "quickie" way to show how I use the shadow map as a layer to retain detail... This goes with my previous tutorial on production line technique.

Thank you for your tutorials. Please consider making more on this subject. Would love to see a tutorial that goes from beginning to end, with all the steps in gimp. Most do tutorials with photoshop and I for one don't have photoshop. Thanks

Zef, I am having a serious issue! The Shirt I am attempting to retexture is see through on the outside layer. the inside layer is the layer holding the texture. I can see the back of the shirt through the front but its backwards and vice versa. Help!

My Shadow/AO won't do "color to alpha" as that is greyed out and won't let me choose it. I have NO idea why and I'm VERY new to Gimp!

What does it mean when you said you had to "anchor in" the fabric layer?
