Can anyone tell me if NT has made additions to the Sew Toolset in 8.5 or 9?

Sew is very primitive now with alot of potential, for things such as a bullet tearing through skin or a missile crashing through metal....but its a total pain in the *** now to sew objects, complex tears are alot of work.

So, any chance we can have a tool in Modeler, a simple one, where you select a string of points on an object, it automatically unwelds them, then sews them back?

Quick and easy...would make it alot easier to make complex tears!

Cheers!

Definitely some sort of mergepoints type of tool or selectionsets which designate sewing areas...

I have gotten the Sew tool to work, but I wish there was no visible seam before the tear happens.

Are you using Start by Event in the Collision properties of the Cloth?
This should help, plus AA and a texture can help hide any other problems...
or you could always do it in comp... :)
