Cloth Simulation - Cache Problem?


Have successfully simulated the dress on my model and and everything was working fine. Now, after making some adjustments to the model, I am trying to resimulate the cloth and the dress seems to simulate but does not animate. Looks like Max is not writing to the cache. When I click "Simulate", the cloth goes through the motions but when the simulation is done, the cloth does not move when I scrub through the animation.

Anyone else have this problem? Any help will be most appreciated.

One other thing:

There seems to be a double transformation going on somewhere. The dress actually looks like it's moving before the figure moves.

If nothing helps maybe drop the cloth modifier and start from scratch.
Or if possible post the scene and i will have a look.

Thank you Meli.

I did delete the Cloth Modifier and repositioned everything in Garment Maker. While the dress does looks better, it is still not simulating. I just noticed that in addition to everything else, it stops simulating between frame 71-73.

Can't upload the file right now, zipped is 2+mb. Mayhaps I can send a link in a bit.

BTW: I am using 3d Max 2010.

Thought I should post this just to close this issue:

There was no problem with the cache or anything else. I just needed to UNCHECK "Show Current State" button. I misunderstood its meaning. Ugh! Wasted a bunch of time on this one.

Thanks for your help.
