Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with the mCloth interaction controls, part of MassFX and 3ds Max: Creating Simulations (2013).
Up to this point in our chapter, we have looked at how we apply an mCloth…modifier to geometry; we have worked a little with constraints, specifically…pinning; and we have taken an overview of the physical fabric properties that are…so important when it comes to ensuring that our cloth behaves appropriately.…What we need to look at now are mCloth's interaction controls.…These determine how mCloth interacts with both itself and any rigid body objects…it comes into contact with during the simulation.…
First though, let's just take a quick look at what we have here in terms of scene setup.…We have our cloth object, which is an editable poly with an mCloth…modifier applied to it.…No mCloth parameters have been altered as of yet, so what we see here are…all default settings.…We also have a number of static rigid body objects with which our cloth can collide.…These have all had their physical shape set to Original.…Now, if I just run the simulation without animation, we can see how the setup is working.…
