- In this video…we'll take a look at the Cloth Tags last tab,…the Expert tab and examine some of its settings there.…The Expert tab has Sub Sampling, Self Collision,…and several other parameters that I kind of refer to…as a means to troubleshoot Cloth simulations…and to help enhance the realism.…So let's take a look at Self Collision.…I'll hit Play on this.…You'll notice that the Cloth simulation itself…has certain areas that start intersecting…and penetrating the geometry of itself.…
So that, obviously not being very realistic…we're going to come here and rewind…and enable Self Collision.…And this basically tells Cinema 4D to examine Points,…Edges, and Polygons of the geometry itself…and look within a certain radius,…as defined over here.…And anything that comes in within this certain radius…it wants to kind of disable or stop moving those Points,…those Edges or Polygons any further.…And thereby preventing any intersecting.…
So let's take a look again with it enabled…and you'll see that now…the intersecting doesn't happen as much.…
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.
