View Full Version : Ncltoh Pressure Map

08 August 2008, 09:15 AM

I just have a little question
I have to make a inflatable guy in Ncloth who inflate with 2 fans in his feet
I've tried with air fields but the result is not really nice
but with the pressure I have something interesting
I just wonder if their is a way to animate the pressure to have the feeling that
the air comes from the feet ?
is it to possible to paint a animated map for the pressure ?

Unfortunately it is not possible to paint a pressure map. You can assign a map to the attribute but this will only map a singular value, meaning one value applied across the entire surface. What you could do however is paint a deformability map. This would give your surface a greater resistance to the pressure building up. You could animate this type of map and it should give you the effects you are looking for. If not try stretch or rigidity.

I found an other solution.
What I did finally is animate a map in the input attract mesh
and in the same time animate a bit the pressure .
now I have my inflating effect
