Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating vertex groups, part of Blender: Cloth Simulation.
…Having created our vertex group in the previous exercise,…time now to show how we can go about animating those same vertices so that…they could help us create some believable looking folds for our curtain geometry.…We accomplish this as we did with our vertex group creation inside the object…data tab.…In fact, just below the vertex group controls, we find a set of…options that give us the ability to set up and work with shape keys in Blender.…Now if you're coming to Blender from another 3D application, such as 3DS Max or…Maya, then you will known these as moth targets and blend cheats, respectively.…
Regardless of their name, shape keys work by giving users the ability to blend from…one mesh state on an object to another over a period of time.…To get this working with our selected cloth geometry let's click on…the Add button and create a shape key that will serve as…the base of our reference state for our geometry.…Next, we need to create another shape key towards which our curtain can animate.…So, let's click the Add button again, and…
