View Full Version : Cloth FX Question - Fx Points?

08 August 2005, 10:37 AM

I'm currently working on the classic flag flapping in the wind problem. So I assigned cloth fx, wind fx and all, and the render looks splendid.

Then I decided that it looked a little boring flapping forwards and backwards, and I decided to make it flutter to the ground. This is where I ran into some problems.

Previously, I had set up 3 points that were fixed, using Selection Sets / Fix in Layout's Cloth FX to make the flag appear to be fixed to a flag pole.

The queston is: how do I get it to become unfixed 1/2 way into the animation

the sewing tool in cloth-fx is done for that. Create an event that will break those points at the frame that you need.

Check on NT site, william vaughn (proton) did some video tutorials before the release of [8]
