hi every one. just needed a little help from u fellow animators. I am trying to animate a cloak on my figure. I want it to move whilst he moves and appear to be hanging on him. How do I animate, or do this. I am using Maya 6.5, I want to be able to animate this cloak for all movements for my character. e.g. if my character lifts his arm the cloak will automatically move. I also wanted the cloak to appear to be blowing hard in the wind. Please help a.s.a.p. need to do this by Wed deadline.

Have you tried Maya cloth? If not, you could try converting it into a soft body with standard maya dynamics. I know this can be done although it is a VERY long time since i used maya!
