Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Caching and looping the sim, part of Cinema 4D: Cloth Simulations for Motion Graphics.
- Now that we have our cloth simulation dialed in,…let's go ahead and look at how we can…maximize the simulation itself,…and get the most efficiency by having it loop.…Often times in motion graphics,…you'll take a certain piece of footage and have it loop…so that way you can dictate its duration and not have to,…you know, you can save on disk space as well.…So it makes a lot of sense to not have to render out…a 3000-frame simulation, when you can render out 300…and loop that, so let's see how we can apply that…to our flag by use of the Point Cache tag.…
So let's go ahead and right click here on our flag,…and we'll go down to Character Tags, Point Cache.…And let's drag this guy down to the end here.…And let's play back our simulation,…and let's take a look at what's going on here.…So for the most part, this is still live,…our cloth tag is still calculating this simulation…on the fly, frame by frame,…so if we jump forward and backward, it's going to appear…to be the same, because it's just going to pick up…where that last frame was.…
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.
