Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Morph corrections, part of Cloth Simulations for Motion Graphics in CINEMA 4D.
- So in this video, we'll take a look at how…we can use the Pose morph to correct certain areas…of our simulation.…Right now in the viewport, we see all the different states…of our curtain, and really what we want to focus in on…is just the morph, so I'm going to select it…and go down to Viewport Solo Single,…and when I click onto my Pose Morph tag, I can easily see…that the curtain end states and the different poses here,…I can just dial these in.…Now you'll notice that the animation's not running…because I'm at the very beginning of the timeline,…but if I do play it,…I can see, let's back up here,…the curtains hitting down the bottom, I can see the bowing,…I can see how the simulation abruptly ends.…
So, let's fix the abrupt ending of the simulation.…Since we only cached 100 frames, once we get to 101,…it's just going to stop, so really, at frame 100,…I kind of want to be in my endstate already,…and so I'm going to set a keyframe here.…That's our destination, and so when we back up a little bit,…so let's say frame 70, that'll give us a good 30 frames,…
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.
