Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating nCloth, part of Understanding Maya nCloth.
Okay, we're ready to create nCloth for this tablecloth.…I've only got 24 frames in the timeline currently.…I just want to expand that little bit.…Here's the end of my animation range. I'll set that to 96 frames, which is four…seconds, and I'll select that cloth object, and go back to the nDynamics menu set,…to nMesh, and choose Create nCloth.…I want to go to the Option box for that, just to show you that there is one kind…of semi-important attribute here, which is the Solver.…
It's possible for you to have more than one nucleus solver in the same scene;…we'll look at that later in the course.…You would use that if you've got two completely different systems that don't…need to interact, or maybe one of them has to have wind on it, and the other one…doesn't. In this case, I've only got one nucleus solver in the scene, and so…that's what showing up in this pulldown list; it just says Solver nucleus1.…If I needed to, I could create a new solver in the process of creating this nCloth shape,…but in this case, I don't want that, because I need it to collide with the tabletop.…
