Anyone have any cool tips on creating a throw blanket that it conforms and lays over top of the corner of a sofa. I'm looking for realistic folds and draping. The throw is one object and the sofa another and i'm in layout. Need some help, Thanks!

Is it possible to create cloth dynamics and collision objects and creating results with one frame?

Your definitely going in the right direction.

If you use cloth dynamics in layout, you can use the couch as a collision object and render the scene to show the cloth folding and draping over the couch. When you find a frame that looks great, use the save trans object and this will save the object out as it appears in that frame. You can then load this new object back into modeller.

BTW If the cloth is to have a texture, make sure you apply it before you deform it - much easier!
