Hey all -
I'm starting to place weekly free videos on my personal site.
Last week was a lesson in processing a certain look in Adobe Lightroom.

This week, how to quickly and easily make a jello like object using LightWave's Cloth FX.

Have a great weekend

Well, it feels like they've gone. Seems like ages ago the LW9 book came out, suppose it was quite a while ago!

Can't wait till 10 comes out so we can have some more!

Thanks for the nice Video!

is there a way to maintain the volume of the cube when the deformation would be stronger?

Nice Dan! Gives me some funky ideas.. :)

Thanks Dan, it's very much appreciated. I had a chance to go through the sports tutorial of your Broadcast Courseware, some really solid stuff! It's funny, I've been using LW sense v6, so some minor things you had to explain to get to the more advanced stuff, were a little basic. But it's amazing how many simple things one can still miss having used LW for so long. I was working on an animation at the same time where it was something basic in Layout that you pointed out that fixed a problem I was wondering about. Thanks again and looking forward to the new vids!

Awesome resource...Dan Rocks!

I would have given up a long time ago if it wasn't for your V9 book and the Essentials book. I keep them close.

no problem guys. I've another planned for next week.

Dirk, simply increase the viscosity and recalculate - you'll see the "solidness" change. Basically, work with sub structure, hold structure, and viscosity for all your rubbery needs on that setup. You an also try creating a different pointset. I just did the entire bottom of the cube - but imagine if you pinned just a corner or two? Or how about a small area on one side? Lots of possibilities.
