View Full Version : nCloth cache randomly ceases to function?

10 October 2009, 11:05 PM
Hi everybody,

I'm really struggling with a problem at the moment where the nCloth cache suddenly ceases functioning. It seems irreversible- nothing I do seems to get it to work again. ( I have to revert to previous incremental saves)

Anyone else had this problem?

Are you using Maya 2009 nCache? Recently I have experienced just the same...
Try not to use any pathnames (full path) that are exceeding 128 (or was it 256...not sure atm) characters.

Thanks to know guys! I've worked with Maya full time for two years- yet it seems like I've barely scratched the surface sometimes!

In my case I seemed to fix it by reducing the scale of my ncache- because I was setting initial state of ncloth that was attached to another moving one, with the moving one I set the nCache scale to 10,000 to slow it down- reducing that number helped. Guess it was just too much for maya ;)

If it happens again, I will try your suggestions, thank you very much!
