I’m on a roll – Here’s another edited video
If you start watching, you will notice two things. First, that I am working in my old office in California. I filmed this video almost a year ago. The second thing you may notice is my hair is super long. It is no longer. Two weeks ago my daughter and I donated all our long locks to the organization “Children with Hair Loss.”
Here is my daughter showing off her new do and her donation.
This video is an instructional video on how to digitize a pattern into PolyPattern software. More videos coming soon. I’m on a roll.
Grading a Bra with PolyPattern
I had intended to hold on to these videos for later publication, but I encountered an issue when I went to do a tutorial on how to digitize with PolyPattern, so I decided to just go ahead and release the videos. They would be a little out of order for anyone who is unfamiliar with the software.
The series I just released I filmed a few months ago when I was grading my California Dreaming Bra. These videos show you how I graded it, then imported it into Illustrator to make them pretty for downloads.
I was planning on doing the digitizing tutorial, then a truing tutorial, a basic drafting a sloper, a bra drafting sloper all within PolyPattern prior to releasing this set. I changed my mind. I wanted to show how easy the software is to use for the grading and converting to download.
If you are interested in this software, you can download the demo version under the Books & Downloads tab. Play around with it and let me know what you think. Once you test it, I can give you access to the pricing info. Its actually not bad compared to other CAD software, I just can’t publish the prices to the world. You need to be a secret agent to get that info. It is in lines with the pricing of Wild Ginger’s Cameo Pattern Design and Grading modules.
I will be doing the videos of everything mentioned above, but I am heading off for the holidays in a few days for a couple weeks, so videos will pick back up in January. Although I did just create a legging pattern from kids aged 18 months through size large in kids. If I can get my butt together and do that video today, that will be the last one before the end of the year. If I don’t get to that today, then I wish you all a Happy Holiday! If I do, I’ll post about it before.
Introduction to PolyPattern
I can’t believe it has taken me this long to create the intro video for PolyPattern. I have created about a half dozen videos on grading in the software, but I haven’t made those live yet. For those interested in PolyPattern Design, take a gander at the interface. I realize that my new computer screen is a little big, so the next video I will zoom in a bit.
