    Can it do the quality of Max in draping cloths onto couches or blankets onto beds, make nice pillows sitting on couches etc?

    Because that's what I'm looking for for architectural interiors.

    It seems Blender is not too bad at doing that.... But I'd like to stick with LW of course.

    hi OFF,
    how high-poly?

    did test runs some time back, and i actually had to uprez to make it work nicely.

    What's the current cost if everyone commits?
    i'd just buy it anyway. for LightWave, it used to cost something like $2200
    (not a fair price, hence limitations, but never the less, that was the price, way back, 2008)

    For those uses, I would recommend Marvelous Designer, its amazing for that type of work.

    Here is an example with a mid-poly character (12000 polys) and low-poly clothing. Pretty far from realtime playback. With more detailed clothing (one tume Shift-D) calculation goes twice slower.
    btw - excuse for audio, just old sound experiments )

    yes, Syflex is by no means realtime.
    remember to use a lowres proxy collision object, simulation will be much faster.

    Yes, of course, proxy objects help.

    Yeah for only 10k a license.
    Sorry but I refuse to play that rich fool.

    Hail, Marvelous Designer is $500
    ----------------------------

    OFF, you could try upping the Mass Density
    for example >
    Mass Density 100
    Stiffness 5.0
    Damping 0.1
    Stretching 100.0
    Shearing 100.0
    Banding 10.0
    i'm no expert on Syflex though...
    from tests i made i got faster calculation with Bullet, however, if i recall correct, Syflex produced much less jitter

    as for Marvelous Designer, for jackets it seems to avoid jitter by using a mode that stiffens areas.
    not perfect, but probably best method so far, if you are ok with going back forth between MD<>LW + $500
    MD vs Syflex > both have their use.

    Its only $490. And 30% off on Black Friday. Which puts it a lot closer to what you would pay for a regular syflex license.

    Yes it can. Syflex is the best cloth system out there for many of the top apps including LightWave3D.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Ok so some good news on top of other good news this week.
    Our SyFlex for LW group buy-in has nearly reached "max discount" level. We still have 7 days left to go! So that means if you say you are in, you will be the person who kicks it over into max discount and everyone else gets to enjoy the same who has said "I'm in!".
    The regular retail price of Syflex is 200 dollars, so think about it. You will be getting the best cloth simulation system out there for many applications including LightWave3D and encouraging more active development for LightWave3D by the developer of Syflex who is a very cool kat.

    If you want in, here is what you do.
    1. Email [email protected]
    2. Include your first and last name.
    3. Include your LW product lock ID (no crack numbers. We check). Also include your preferred email address for registration in the Syflex system.
    4. Have the money on hand Sept. 29th at 12:01AM as I will be closing off the "I'm in window" and changing to "pay in" for 24 hours.
    Once everyone has paid in during that 24 hour period, I will complete the group buy-in and hand the data off to Gerald who will send you your keys and registration details via the email you provide.

    Liberty3d.com has now done several of these group buy-ins in support of the 3rd party developers who support LightWave3D and the users who support both them and the development efforts of the LWG and 3rd party coders who make LW sing.

    If you need more information, go here. http://www.liberty3d.com/20110/syflex-group-buy-in/ cheers and happy times!
