QT test (http://www.3dink.com/clothtest8.mov)

Not so fancy, but a quick test to see if sewing clothfx, then tweaking it to be hard would work for something like a missle passing through metal.
Now all we need is someone to write an lscript that makes Sewing many jagged pieces together easier! ;)
Imagine this would look great with many hires sewn pieces that would curl nicely!

Very cool effect, to finally be able to cut polys!
:) Many unorthodox uses waiting out there!

:) I like that. Thanks Howard, it keeps us 'waiters' thinking of ways to exploit LW8's potential when it arrives.

How hard would it be to put some gravity in on those peices? Mabie add a little wind?

Good test but just wanted to check some other dynamics on the paper. Also about how long did it take to setup the scene?

If I understand it correctly, it's supposed to represent 'broken' metal so looks good as it is to me.

Timing is a little off, but that could just be the playback/preview. It's just something about how the metal bends, be more use if I could say what it was that distracts me about it, sorry Howard. ;)

Well, it needs plenty more polys and jagged cuts, instead of 4 percect pieces...and of course the cloth settings need tweaking for a harder metal feel.
only a test! I would do a better one but sewing is such a pain when youve got detailed hires broken models....think Ill wait for that lscript!?
