Does anyone remember if there was any problems with ClothMotion

and tS6.6????

(Should know ClothMotion to answer back)....

You can create a bounding box, sphere ect.. around your object

for the cloth to contact with. When I create a bounding box and size

it a little larger than my object (so cloth does not show-through the object).

Every time I go do the calculation the bounding box RESIZES to its

origanal size and the cloth goes through the object a ways...

Another way to do it is to have the actual shape of the obect

deflect the cloth. This takes a litttle longer but works.. The problem is

I get show through. There is a setting in the app. its called (h) by

raising this number its supposed to internaly extend the surface of your

object... This does not seem to work.. My work around is to resize-up

the object, calculate the cloth motion, then when done size back down

the object a bit. This works fine, but would be nothing but a pain on an

object with a complex motion. Where there problems with these

functions an tS6.6??? Also how do you pin down one end of the cloth???


The tiny Japanese manual is bad engliss.. Does any one have a better

one or a user created one that make more sense????


Thanks....

I haven't had any problems with ClothMotion in 6.6 or the Model side of 7.6.


There are a few tutorials out on the web and there are some on these very forums. This one tackles the 'pin down' you ask about: http://forums1.caligari.com/truespace/showthread.php?t=2156
