MARVELOUS DESIGNER FILE EXTENSIONS--WHAT THEY MEAN

A couple of days ago, I posted information on how to save and use (open) garment and project files in Marvelous Designer.  Since that time, I have discovered an issuewith some project files created by a friend,  So as I was slogging around to solve that issue, I stumbled across the information below. Yes, yes...if all else fails, you should read the manual!  LOL

But in all seriousness, I think this information may be something you should familiarize yourself with at some point.  This information comes directly out of the CLO 3D/MD2 manual posted at the link below. You can browse it online or, you can download as a .pdf file and/or an .epub file. 



Garment *.pac It is an abbreviation of “Pattern and Cloth”. It stores cloth, pattern, seams and material data.
Pose *.pos It stores the pose data of avatar and it is saved automatically when you save clothes as “*.pac” format. You can change the avatar’s pose easily using this format The pose can be saved only when you open an avatar model with joints as COLLADA format.
Motion[A] *.mtn It stores the motion data of avatar. The motion can only be saved when you open an avatar model with the motion as COLLADA format.
Animation[A] *.anm It records the garment being simulated with the motion(*.mtn) of avatar. You need a garment file(*.pac) to play this animation in CLO 3D & Marvelous Designer or Marvelous Show Player.
Arrangement Point *.arr It stores red points around avatar used to arrange patterns easily. It can be created based on Arrangement Bounding Volumes.
Arrangement
Bounding Volume
*.pan It stores the cylinder covering parts of avatar. It can be used to arrange the patterns easily after pose is changed.
Physical Property *.psp It contains details on Physical Property of garment.

Word of Caution--If you are searching for a manual specific to MD3, there is another manual available on the web.  I downloaded it and it is a partial manual, which may be a work in progress for newer tools they may be working on.  Or, it could be information for those who have the Enterprise version and not the Basic version like I am using.
