Anyone has some tutorials to add? As you can see i put some work in this, so i would really would like to have some feedback, if i have all the tutorials you can think of etc. It’s like no one even noticed this threat so i would be very pleased, if someone could add or say something

ps: Make a sticky of this one?
cheers

Cheers!
Thanks for this list, Its gonna help alot!
Ive succumbed to the darkside, and am learning Maya Dynamics! (Finally )

Hey Jer, didnt know you were with the enemy…

There are lots of nCloth tutorials on my blog, although currently they are not well indexed. You need to go through the archives to find them, as just selecting nCloth will only display a few.
