I have used it predominantly for making clothes and various garments (scarves, caps, gloves, shirts, tees, trousers, skirts). Later, I started designing accessories in Marvelous Designer, too (tents, foils, body bags, draperies, pillowcases, curtains and custom MoCap suits for dogs and horses).” ~Diana Sindel – Junior character artist in Digic Pictures

We had no budget but had generous support of a few key partners, such as Fox Render Farm, Chaos Group and Adelphoi Music.
