Trying to animate a flag in the wind. Is there a tutorial for LW 8. I get to the calculate stage and hit calculate and it tells me "cloth FX zero weight nodes" I click O.K. and LW crashes.

In modeler I selected all of the points on the flag and created a weight map. Not sure I set the weight properly.

I have yet to see this error.

You probably checked this but I would make sure there are no weight maps or calls to use such, and that the cloth FX weight is not ZERO. Not likely you need a weight map to animate a flag object.

I'm having my own issues with clothFX at the moment. My simulation is exploding instantly when using basic settings on a straightforward quad-mesh used as clothing. I thought maybe it was the collison object, but it explodes without it. Seems to be a problem with the parts/surfaces that I fix.
