View Full Version : Quick Help needed / NCloth anim. Constraint

07 July 2008, 04:01 PM
yeah we have a project going on and i have to render a scene tonight.. problem is..
the constraint does not behave correctly..

The character throws his cape away on Frame 200, the clothcape initialises on frame 60, and the "enable" of my weld constraint is animated to be on at 199 and off at 200, but it just disapears depending on how many substeps i'm using but NEVER at frame 200, more like frame 100 or 150 .. i tried to animate glue strength but the same problem happened.

Hope you can help me out :-(

A few comments, questions, and double checks.

Have you checked the graph editor to actually see what the curve is doing? It might be spiking causing it to act funny.

What attribute are you keying on the weld constraint?

Yeah that was my first thought but it was perfectly flat.
I keyed the "enable" attrib at first and then i tried the glue strength.

I really is linked to the substeps.. 20 substeps and the constraint is not there at all for example (if keys for this constraint exist that is, otherwise no problem)
