Okay. Now that we have our curtain prepared,…we can use our belt tag to connect it to our helper object.…There's two things that I want…to do here before we move forward,…and that's adjusting the helper object itself.…So let's hit F4 on the keyboard to switch to our front view.…And let's go ahead and move our…helper object down a little lower here.…I want this to not be so close to the top on this edge.…In fact, maybe somewhere in here.…And let's go ahead and rotate this a little bit…so it grabs that same similar edge there.…
Okay. So now let's go back to our helper object.…And in our top view, hitting F2 on the keyboard,…you'll notice that the helper object is aligned…with the back portion of our curtain.…I actually need to move that forward a little bit…so that it exists, like, in between both…the front and the back of our curtain.…Okay. So with those two things done,…let's go to our helper object.…And under the coordinates, let's zero these…coordinates out by freezing all transformations.…And that's our default state now.…
Cloth Simulations for Motion Graphics in CINEMA 4D is a project-based learning experience that follows three projects from start to finish: an animated flag blowing in the wind, opening and closing theater curtains, and a cloth-on-object logo reveal. Each project is rich with lessons that artists can adapt and apply to any cloth animation. Author Alan Demafiles will help viewers use the C4D Cloth tag and colliders, attach cloth to other geometry in a scene, loop simulations, correct imperfections with the morph deformer, and apply logos and other patterns to fabric. Start watching to incorporate cloth simulations into your mograph skillset.
