I’ve had a lot of requests for 3Ds Max Cloth tutorials, especially for curtains, so here’s a 30 minute video to get you started.
Cloth Modifier is a very powerful tool, it has endless possibilities! It has only 2 problems:
– It’s slow! (for some reason it never uses more than 10-20% of my CPU during the calculations)
– It’s extremely hard to find good tutorials on it.
To use the Cloth effectively, you have to use some imagination.
One of the most important things for the Cloth modifier is using helper objects!
These are simple 3d objects that you animate or place in strategic positions to move and manipulate the cloth.
Once you get an idea how they work, you can try experimenting with different techniques and see the results for yourself.
I’ll try to make some more Cloth tutorials in the future! For now – just watch the video ;)
