    LW slide brush tool VS blender cloth brush

    What are your opinions,feedbacks on the similarity or differences between these two great brush wrinkle tools...

    You got the links around the wrong way.

    Cannot be compared in my opinion.

    LWBrush is ok for very basic wrinkles but easily results in geometry errors. LW brush is ok for very simple tasks.

    Other brush solutions can do similar things (Pinch, Shift, Smear brushes).

    The Blender Cloth Brush on the other hand is having its own cloth-like algorithm. It shifts and wrinkles adjacent geometry nicely (unlike LWBrush) and allows masking for pinning areas etc. Very promising tool.

    It's got a simulation running under your manual actions.
    Not really a question of comparison if looked at clearly.

    both cool, the Blender one is more powerful, here, a LW test by the way.

    realistic fine wrinkles looks to be tricky in both

    just make unrealistic ones and you'll be fine

    The links are just fine, the labeling was wrong
    that explanation clearly shows how confused I am and was, thanks for the notification, you have to disregard it and make the logical connection yourself

    That is what I suspected as well.

    I agree its hard to compare, also the tools serve different functions as well. The slide tool is also used to... well, slide the topology of your mesh around without affecting its shape. Wrinkles are just a bonus feature on top of it.

    The main difference is that Blender has all those other sculpting tools in there, not just a wrinkle brush.

    Well yes, sort of for the actual sculpt brush in general, but not for the actual comparison between how it wrinkles..where I believe the cloth brush actually is simulating collision behavior within the cloth, not just a texture brush as I believe 3rd powers brush is.

    So these are for model sculpting only? It's not for animation purposes? If want to model messy bedsheets I guess I'd go for the Blender tool.

    Basicly to avoid having to do cloth simulation, and also not bein able to control it the same way, but that doesn´t stop it from after tweaking folds and wrinkle to add clothFX to it I think.
    And more so...I suspect it will work with blenders shape keys to morph between keyframes, like metamorphic, but better.

    as i suspected, it is limited, useful, but limited >




    should work better for cloth tho'

    It looks more like wax than fabric. Can Blender do drenched areas on fabric? That would make those folds look more convincing.
