View Full Version : Help with syflex.

07 July 2006, 08:42 AM
I am pretty new to the whole cloth thing. How do I use syflex so that my cloth can be enveloped with animation and have syflex on it for certain parts?Whatever I do, it just doesn't seem to work. Any tip or help would be awesome.

Thanks. I will try looking again. I have already tried looking at the tutorials in there and the other stuff too,but it didn't really see anything that deals with having the mesh have an envelope and then having cloth sim on it too.

I don't know if this is supported directly.

But what you could do instead is duplicate and freeze your syflex mesh. Then envelope your duplicated mesh to your rig. Then pin constrain the points you want enveloped on your syflex mesh to the duplicate mesh.
This way you can also quickly change which points are enveloped, or have the constraint be soft, etc.
