MOFAC & ALFRED ‘BLADE’
- by Heesuk Choi - 3D Design Director at Mofac & Alfred
- With Marvelous Designer you can design in 2D and it can be reflected directly in 3D to see some changes. This has broken down many barriers!! It represents a tremendous savings in time of creative production. I have tried other similar programs but I didn't feel too comfortable with them.
Could you give us an overview of MOFAC & ALFRED? What is your background and what are some of the projects you've worked on?
MOFAC & ALFRED is a CG animation and motion graphics company that has created a unique visual effect for 4 years. Our first project was FREE STYLE2 and we’ve been recently working on the VFX project for mobile game, ‘BLADE’ which Marvelous Designer was used in.
How long have you been working in the industry?
I am Heeseok-Choi, a 3D Design director at MOFAC & ALFRED. I have been working in the industry for the past 10 years. I started with product design and then moved into modeling after that.
In your project, what were the elements where Marvelous Designer was used?
Marvelous Designer was used in creation of objects for Monster and Background in PC and NPC. When we first started our project ‘Black Desert’, I have started using Marvelous Designer to design capes, skirts and hoodies for this project. I became a big fan of Marvelous Designer as it allowed us to generate 3D clothes quickly from scratch. I have found myself using Marvelous Designer a lot more for concept work over the last couple of years, mainly because of its newer features such as Symmetric Editing.
Why did you use Marvelous Designer for these creatures?
I tried Marvelous Designer and it was AWESOME. Due to time constraints I chose Marvelous Designer for 3D modeling and simulation.
Could you describe challenges in which Marvelous Designer was of use to you and go into detail regarding how Marvelous Designer helped overcome them?
We always encountered the problem that designs could work well in 2D but not in 3D, or vice versa. With Marvelous Designer you can design in 2D and it can be reflected directly in 3D to see some changes. This has broken down many barriers!! It represents a tremendous savings in time of creative production. I have tried other similar programs but I didn't feel too comfortable with them. I still remember the feeling I had when I was able to make my first things in Marvelous Designer. I thought, “This is my program.” For someone who is starting out I would say that Marvelous Designer is a tool that you can express yourself.
