Released January 2012

Browzwear version 4.9 introduces Unicode support, allowing the use of any language, new interoperability features , simulation improvements, improved avatars  and more.

What’s new in version 4.9:

Simulation improvements
  1. Fixed holes
  2. Improved clusters symmetry
  3. Speed improvement



Unicode support is now overall. This permits the use of non western European characters  in many areas such as :

  • File names (VSGX, VSP, VSA,  images, 3D output)
  • Folder names
  • Color ways, fabrics, edge textures and attachments  names
  • 3D notes, custom camera positions, 3D measuring tapes
  • Avatars and more…
Added support for ASTM DXF format

It is now possible to import and export pattern files in ASTM format. ASTM is more advanced and robust than the older AAMA

Apply fabric changes to all color ways

A button in the fabric properties dialog box allows applying physical properties changes to the same fabric in all existing color ways. This saves the repeated manual updating of all color ways one by one.

3D Export enhancements

In addition to the existing  FBX and 3DS formats , export 3D also to:

  • OBJ
  • DAE
  • DXF
Baby avatar new body part

A new body part was added under Body Shaping: Crotch

This body part is most useful when fitting tight panties or swimwear

Browzwear version 4.85 introduces an advanced licensing system, streamlined work process and an updated garment library including new garment types.

What’s new in version 4.85:

New and Advanced Licensing system

In order to allow full 64 bits compatibility as well as new and advanced licensing options, we are upgrading our licensing system to the Aladdin/Safenet Sentinel HASP.

This system is easier to use and to update.

Preparing for the new license system
  • All preparations for the new system can be carried out prior the installation of version 4.85
  • The new system will not interfere in any way with current or older versions used
  • All the details are available in the document provided by Browzwear

Streamline the work process options

Outfit enhancements

Two enhancements were added to the outfit process

  • Garment related avatar added to outfit map

It is now possible to summon any of the avatars related to the different garment s included in the outfit. This can be done at any time after the outfit has been created.

  • Apply button added to outfit map

This allows switching color ways without closing the outfit map to view each change as in the previous version.  Mixing & matching or exploring the many color combinations can be viewed more easily.

DPI enhancement

As requested by many, version 4.85 recognizes the DPI value embedded in images and applies it automatically to the image properties in VStitcher. This saves the manual DPI assignment which was required for most images.

Ignore sizes mechanism on by default

No need for the manual action in the Garment Map.

Updated garment library

An updated garment library is now available
  • The garments are all updated to the latest simulation
  • New garments added
  • Several new outfits are also available

Released January 2011

Browzwear 4.8 version presents a new capability that allows creation and simulation of total outfit.  These innovative abilities permit endless garment combination possibilities, better control and creativity burst.

As always, here at Browzwear we continue to improve our simulation capabilities to maintain high quality true- to- life representation and simulation speed.

This advanced version broadens the support of garment types and provides additional marketing and presentation possibilities. New measuring tools and other features that make the software more user friendly, mark another significant progress for the Browzwear application family

What’s new in version 4.8:

Total outfit simulation

Sports outfit

Combine 2 or more garments into one outfit. Control the interaction between the different garments of the outfit. For example, shirt inside pants, jackets and more…

All components of the outfit can be manipulated as needed.

  • Garments combined by the outfit keep all their color ways, fabrics, stitches and clusters.
  • Add or remove each garment at anytime
    • Select total outfits color ways
    • Switch color ways of the individual garments


The new simulation version 41 is further improved

  • It is faster by an average of 5%
  • Collision is improved.
  • Has an improved and smoother mechanism of shrink and force multiplier depth

Face and Back textures

The new option of displaying separate face and back fabric, edges and attachments images, which was introduced in version 4.7, is now supplemented with the ability to link both sides when the separation is not needed.

  • New fabrics, edges or attachments face and back images are initially linked.
  • Link or unlink them as needed.
  • These actions may be reversed quickly at any time.

New measuring tools

Measuring tools

A new set of dynamic measuring tools is available in version 4.8.

  • Keep measurements visible or hidden
  • Measurement lines may be attached to existing points and move with them
  • Measurements are updated dynamically and displayed in 2D
  • Measurement lines are saved with the garment file

New internal stitch option

A new internal stitch option is now available.

Up to now all internal stitches where following the carved edge shape. It is now possible to choose between this behavior and forcing the edge to be stitched in a straight line between the two points.

Garment related pose

In addition to the available garment related avatar (where a reference to the last used avatar is saved with the garment file) new garments saved with version 4.8 also remember the pose of this avatar.

Recalling the garment related avatar for such garments will load it using the pose that was current when the file was saved.

New Environment: Gradient

Gradient Environment

A new environment is available with version 4.8.

The new Gradient environment is a soft, neutral environment which leaves the focus on the avatar and the outfit.

The new Browzwear version 4.7 has improved simulation, an option to view fabric back side differently than the face side, much faster database and windows 7 compatibility.
These and other improvements mark yet another significant progress for the Browzwear application family

What’s new in Browzwear version 4.7:

Simulation 40
Version 4.7 comes with an improved simulation version 40. The main features of simulation 40 are:

  • Speed:
    • Simulation 40 is faster by an average of 20-25 percents
    • Simulating in Fast mode, increases the average speed by another 25 percents.
  • Improved pleats simulation
  • Improved repeatability
  • Automatic grid matching

New fabric Face and Back options

Fabric & trims can be viewed also as if turned inside out. This mode is called Back view, as opposed to the normal Face view.

Database enhancements

Browzwear version 4.7 comes with a new version of the Browzwear Database Administration application and a new version of the database scheme itself.
The main improvements are much faster data loading and added support for SQL server 2008. Some important bug fixes are also included.

Support for SQL server 2008
The new database and the Database Administration utility now officially support Microsoft SQL server 2008

Faster data loading
The new database version features significantly faster data loading which can be noticed when opening the Database Administration application as well as the Garment map in Browzwear applications

Windows 7 Compatibility

Browzwear 4.7 is fully compatible with Microsoft Windows 7.
Other supported operating systems are Windows XP and windows Vista
