Avatar Information

The models used in Marvelous Designer are called avatars. These are the basis for all the garments you will find on CG Garments. The Specification section of each product will tell you which avatar was used and when it was downloaded from the source.  The Included in Purchase section will indicate if that avatar is included in the project file. In most cases, the avatar is included just to save you time.

Other Custom Avatars

Some avatars are custom created by CG Garments. Those avatars will be available for free in the Avatars section of the store.

Sizing Your Garments

You are not restricted to these avatars. Simply open the project file, delete the avatar and add your own custom character. Depending on the size difference, there may be small or large adjustments necessary to fit the garments to your character. Refer to the table below to determine the differences.

The iClone, DAZ, Poser and Manuel Bastioni LAB programs all have conforming clothing options. This allows you to import the garment made on the base avatar and then resize it automatically depending on changes to the model within the program. Each program has its own instructions to do this, so you'll need to become familiar with those techniques. Some are much easier than others to fit.

Avatar Body Sizes

When you are choosing a garment, you may find it helpful to know what the sizing of the avatar is. If you have a custom avatar, you can take just a few measurements, using the tools in Marvelous Designer, to determine if the garments will fit. Here are some very basic measurements of the standard avatars. If the garment used a custom avatar, visit the avatar page to see those measurements.
