- We have our cache sim, but we notice that there's…several areas that probably need some refining, and we're…going to use something called Pose Morph to smooth out…the transitions.…Alright.…So, with our curtain, let's go ahead and play it back,…and let's just take a look at what's going on here…and try to identify what needs our attention.…The first thing that pops up to me is that this bottom part…right here.…And like it settles down from its initial state.…If this is, this curtain's kind of already settled,…it really shouldn't stretch down and hit the floor…anymore and cause that buckling.…
And also, too, on this left hand side, you'll see…how it bows.…I think the curtain should probably just drop…straight down right there.…And then, lastly, because we only cached 100 frames of this,…if we were to bump this up to frame 150, once we get to 100,…this curtain it just abruptly stops right there.…it doesn't really come to a natural resolve.…So, let's fix all three of those things.…And we're going to use something called Pose Morph.…
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.
