Object Browser ▶ Fabric ▶ Texture Generator
- Click the tool/menu indicated.
→ Texture Generator Opens.
Click Open at the left bottom of Texture Generator to open the texture image.
→ The size and resolution of the textures loaded are displayed at the top.

To maintain the selected area, click Manual at the right bottom of the selected area.
→ The selected area is maintained and repeated.
The options below can be set only in Auto mode since they work based on the analyzed results.
Select fabric type for more accurate analysis.
The analysis is based on Normal Map, thus it is only vaild with the existence of Normal Map.
- Plain: Solid fabric without repeated patterns.
- Repeat Pattern: Fabric pattern is regular.
- Random Color Pattern: Fabric pattern is irregular.
Adjust the value to equalize the difference in brightness caused by crease in the fabric.
※ Note: Depending on the fabric, some colors or patterns may be distorted. Refer to the attached image. below.
When the connected part of the fabrics are not smooth by crease in the fabric, align weave areas equally.

Good monring, I have a question :
Once I manage to open an image in the texture editor (plus button in the fabric menu, "open" at the bottom of the new window) it doesn't let me do anything else... no changing the fabric type o the equalize amount, I can't even press apply & close. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or there's something else going on, could you help me with this issue?
