Hi, I have a model with several ncloth attachments (shirt, skirt, hair), what is the correct way to move and pose her without losing the attached clothing? Also, is there anyway to have her begin in different poses (for camera cuts from one scene to the next) without having the clothing react as if it had been moved abruptly?

Thanks!

I usually just animate the character into the start position, so my real animation starts at frame 101 instead of frame 1. That 100 frames lets me get into the start pose and lets the cloth settle.

Once at the start pose you can set the initial state on you cloth and set the start frame to 101 to save having to do the run-up each time you want to see your animation.

You may also find this little tip useful for some things.
