View Full Version : Soft Body Dynamics

09-10-2006, 05:49 PM
Oh god I'm so embarrassed... The same **** day and I'm back with my cap in hand asking for help. :)

Just a quick one: in general terms how do you approach doing a cape (super hero style) using soft body dynamics. I'm not asking you do all the work for me, just point me in the direction of the manual pages, or describe in general ways how it's done.

The cape is fastened around the characters neck onto a hasp on his chest. So it has to drape over his shoulder then hang down his back.

I've tried to figure it out and now I've got a banging migraine.

Thanks guys, you are MY heroes.

Heres a link to the newtek video tute section.
There's a stack of videos..some showing cloth stuff and hard effects and a cape...Hope it helps..
I downloaded a video called "collide" which shows how to setup a cape to react to the character etc. The link is called "Using collision objects in dynamics" Under the Layout section.

Use Cloth not Soft!
