Now that syflex is not supported in LW ( and and use to not work totally correct ) what do we have to simulate realistic cloth in LW once Cloth FX does not respect colisions?

Have anyone here tried these solutions?

Well I posted this in another thread, but there is a way to make the bullet libraries work with cloth. The developers just need to eventually implement them:

For the moment iBounce has some cloth support, With Bullet and PhysX I believe.

Marvelous Designer works very well.

Just export your character animation as a mdd file.
Record the cloth simulation, and export the cloth animation back as mdd.

Of course, you can only use cloth created with Marvelous Designer.
You can't just import a mesh and turn it into cloth.
But, that's not much of a problem since it's one of the best solutions available for creating clothing.

The cloth is also capable of containing creases and folds, and differing properties.

I think these videos speak for themselves:

Marvelous Designer has a great cloth sim, but the design tools could use some work.

The personal license version of Marvelous Designer costs $199. But it requires the animation plugin to be purchased separately. Right now that's still at the $99. introductory price, but will be going up to $199.
