    Well, I already have my license, so can't help with the buy-in, but I _highly_ recommend Syflex for cloth (have it for both LW & Modo)!

    I'm told it's also great for certain hair dynamics setups in LW. I haven't tried personally, but trust the friend who made that recommendation.

    I've done some hair sims in Syflex actually and it works very well.

    yup, syflex is the soft body deformer everyone should have. Does a lot of nice effects.

    The website is a bit thin on tutorials. I know Ryan has a course, though any other resources would be very welcome (esp hair).

    Is it possible to use Syflex as a replacement for Marvelous Designer ?

    For dynamics stuff sure. MarvelousD is actually a cloth pattern modeler too though.

    Many thanks. I was thinking of this example from Syflex for Cinema 4D (though I understand Syflex for LW now also has sewing forces) which piqued my interest.

    Also Jason, bit off topic, but do you still use Messiah Studio ?

    I used too because a few others I worked with did but then they all moved on after the setup tab crash and so did I. I can't upload videos because I'm on satellite at the moment and it would eat up all my data. It's still one of the best animation apps. . .especially if you don't want to spend the bucks.

    I can't find anything that states the system requirements for Syflex. Will it work on a Mac?

    I bought three weeks ago. Compared to MD, it works slower and does not work well on high-poly objects. I really hope that Syflex will developed to GPU calculations, or at least to multiprocessing (of my 48 hyperthreads, only 14 percent of the capacity works).
    P.S. Very inconvenient cache saving system.

    Yep. I'm using it all the time, for cloth and sometimes hair.

    Depends on the final number of people committing. Kat is hoping to get down to $100 if possible, but can't promise that for sure.
