The Cloth system in 3ds Max allows you to create realistic garments and fabrics, from T-shirts to tablecloths. This course, from author Joel Bradley, provides a deep dive into cloth simulation in 3ds Max, giving you the information you need to tackle your own project. Joel examines the effect of scale on cloth behavior, the impact different mesh subdivision types can make on your model, and the function and options behind the Cloth modifier, the heart of the Cloth system. He also shows how to set up and control behaviors like bend and curve, U and V Stretch, Density, Thickness, and Friction. Plus, discover how to work with groups and constraints and create effects like wet cloth and tearable cloth.
This course was created and produced by Joel Bradley. We are honored to host this content in our library.
As we work through this 3ds Max course, I will be letting you know how to access the various tools and controls that we'll be making use of inside the Max user interface. As well as calling out keyboard shortcuts or hot keys, as I make use of them. I would like to point out before diving in however, that I will be somewhat assuming you have at least a reasonable level of familiarity with and ability to use the 3ds Max application. By that, I mean that you will know how to work with essential Max controls.
Such as viewport navigation and basic object selection and manipulation tools. If you are new to 3ds Max and need to learn how to master essential elements of the program before following along with our clock simulation in 3ds Max course then I would very much recommend that you check out some of the great 3ds Max titles already found on the Linda.com online training library. Focusing, perhaps, on the essential training titles available, that can help you get up and running with the application.
Other skills that you would probably find it helpful to have or acquire, as you work through this course, would include a basic understanding of the general principles or laws of physics. The working and principles of keyframe animation in general probably even a knowledge of the clock tools found in other 3D applications such as Autodesk's Maya as well as the freely available Blender.
