some questions about mdd... I have created a mdd file, apply on a mesh, all fines but... how to increse the mdd speed, change which frame to start, and re-size the mdd(mesh)?? I just dont want to re-calculate again, it taking so long and slow... thanks:D

You can change speed, start time etc in the MDD Plug panel, But as far as i know you cant make any changes to the mesh as it reads the position of the points from the MDD, so even if you did re size the mesh it would snap back once you apply the MDD.

That is possible in clothfx. You can also use Denis Pontonniers free mdd pointer nodes to control the mdd files in a variety of ways.
