View Full Version : softbody follow path, follow wind

I have soft body streamers attached to a kite which look great when animated via the follow wind parameter in dynamics. But I would also
like the same elements to follow path so that when the kite sways
and rotates, the steamers follow its path.

Would baking it first then using follow path be the solution?
If yes, how?

Any help greatly appreciated !

I would use a string of 2 point polys as the tail and metalink the actual kite tail to that. Apply cloth to the 2 point poly string

I'm able to get a low res box to deform high res streamer w/metalink. My only
problem now is getting wind to affect the streamer as well. It moves
like cloth, but wind seems to have no effect....Thx in advance
fo any tips.
