How hair of animals and feathers of birds machine embroidery designs is imitated in editors of embroidery so that they looked nationalistically? In fact, there are 2 ways with which it’s possible to go in attempts to reach the necessary result: 1. To create all objects manually, using traditional methods of a digitizing. 2. To use the automatic effects, similar "Fur" which allow, from the point of view of developers, quickly and effectively to make that becomes hands. Opportunity to apply this effect is far not in all embroidery software editors. It is in Tajima DGML by Pulse of 14 versions and in my Stitch Era Liberty Plus. I am more while anywhere anything similar didn't meet. But I after all not saw everything the editor so, quite probably, somewhere else such "the fast button" too exists. But before using automatic opportunities, I believe that it is worth paying close attention and to deal with how wool is created in manually mode. And to start something doing in the computer, in my opinion, it is necessary from far away, having addressed to bases – to hand embroidery. It’s lower than two most excellent examples of hand embroidery from the book A-Z of Thread Painting: And it already diagrams to them with division into sections and the ornamented direction of a stitch which correspond to the real direction of growth of wool and feathers: A method which authors of this book suggest to use is the most traditional - a combination of a long and short stitch with careful selection of mixed thread colors: Something similar at manually input of contours also is required to be repeated in the machine embroidery editor . Only it will be necessary to be played a little more with settings of parameters – density, stitch length, and also to apply still some effects which will help to mix up to colors of an embroidery, type of fragmentary edge (jagged edge) or will help to set the direction of natural growth of wool – tatami filling on the 1st or 2nd curves. That’s, in the course of digitizing it will be necessary to try to create something similar: Process of creation of such objects is simple and quite realize in any of editors of machine embroidery, after all its creation requires only a standard tool kit: sateen (satin stitch), tatami, simple stitch. It will be long and dreary process. But, it for 100% pays off that all parameters can be supervised thus: both density of layers, and stitch lengths (that is the extremely important for high-quality mixing of colors of threads), and a form of edge of object, and degree of its roughness, and the sizes of elements and the directions of stitches in them. That you won't tell about automatic methods about which I will tell later.
I will continue a subject of imitation of wool and feathers in machine embroidery manually and I will show today as it is possible to reach, according to the developers, similar effect in an automatic mode, in those editors of embroidery in whom there is such an effect or filling – Fur. Once again I will repeat, I know while only 2 editors in whom it can be realized. It is Tajima by Pulse 14 Maestro and Stitch Era Liberty Plus (if it was bought (Expansion pack) add-on for reproduction of this effect). First I will sort the simple option, both on settings, and by opportunities, what can make Stitch Era. Why this option is simple? Only because doesn't allow the user almost any opportunities to operate that, that turns out. Type of a stitch to which is applicable this effect – satin (smooth) or sateen with filling. Also it doesn't matter, by what way the object on two points (Column) or a simple contour (Satin Path, Fusion Fill) is digitized. After a choice any of led round the tape by me with all possible settings for this effect appears on the picture above tools. I chose Fur Fill Pattern, having specified desirable texture (a violet square): Now it is possible to draw a contour in which it is planned to apply desirable effect of imitation of wool. For example, such: Further it is necessary to specify the desirable directions of stitches (Stitch Direction). I chose only two directions for the experiments: Further I choose the Effect Line tool and I draw with its help cross lines, as though dividing them object into sections, but the object thus remains whole: After I divided object, I press Enter and I receive such picture: If to pass from the 3D mode into a standard mode of display of stitches, it is visible what represent these sections: Naturally, all sections have the identical direction of stitches that helps them "to get" well each other, without demanding from the user of careful selection of these directions. Sections, in essence - the usual sateen, which one edge equal other edge of object also coincides with drawn Effect line the line (red arrows), other edge of object the rough (Jagged Edge). Roughness of edge can be regulated in a percentage ratio. I can regulate also from what party or from both the edge won't be equal: But even if I will choose roughness from 2 parties, it won't affect in any way an internal structure of sections. One edge of internal sections always will be a straight line; forms of edges of external sections will change only: I can't make with sections practically anything, besides, that to specify their color: to make them one-color instead of the color: I can't change an entry point and an exit, to change density of each section separately. I can't apply to them frameworks any at all (strengthening). Besides, I can't operate sequence of embroidery even if I have in design one more same color. Full lack of will and dependence on the software! But as though, that was, I made here such simple animal and embroidered it: Continue this theme in next Blog
