Please explain? sorry i dont really know what is meant by absolute filepaths. i honestly dont know why i keep getting this error, the strange thing is that i have noticed if i went back and imported the OBJ that makeclothes made back into blender then added the textures and then push makeclothes button again, it works. so why not the first time?

I was very happy with my previous shirt i did for the lady's, even though that was done very quick with no effort put into the mesh etc. thus i decided to try doing another one with more detail this time for the guys. over all I am very pleased with the results of my texture studies.

And as always, i get the texture not found story when making clothes.. seriously give up on that. but they are included in zip folder.

In Blender, filepaths to external assets can be absolute or relative. Relative paths start from the location of the .blend file. Absolute paths start at the root directory (ie. at C:/ or whatever drive letter where the file is stored).

The advantage of relative filepaths is portability. A computer with a completely different folder organization than the origin system can open that file in Blender and nothing will be broken, if assets are included in folders next to the .blend and relative paths are set. Absolute paths would break in this case, unless the origin system's directory was recreated exactly.

I think MakeClothes doesn't know how to read relative paths in a .blend file and thus can't find the textures.

You can quickly change the filepath type for all assets in Blender by going to File :arrow: External Data :arrow: Make All Paths Absolute / Make All Paths Relative

I would like to encourage people to post their cloth at the assets place when finished. Thanx

Decided to try something a bit different, i really like the result but it ended up slightly higher poly count.

The specularity map i feel was a bit too strong on the texture included in the zip.
I have made adjustments
Here is the result.

What's wrong with the textures? I can't see any obvious problems.

I think the mhmat files need to be tidied up with file references, otherwise the ones I looked at were fine.

Wanted to try making a split skirt, ended up with this - then textured using the previous floral shirts textures to make it an outfit.
