Ripping, or Tearing Cloth, how to?

Ive got a shot where boat sails are being torn open by cannonballs and wonder how this could be done in Syflex?

Cheers!

thanks cg, Gerards prompt reply was :

Hi Howard,

I would suggest combining the two pieces of sail in the same object. The
applying syCloth on this object.
Now, create springs to seam both sides.
Finally merge the two edges (with a maximum distance): Maya will add a
node after the syCloth node. This way the cloth will appear as one neat
surface.
By animating "Active" you can open the seam.

It's a little annoying to create all these springs manually, but it works.

I hope this can help.

Kind regards,
