Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting attributes by vertex, part of Learning Maya nCloth 2012.
One really common that you'll need to do in nCloth is assigning dynamic or…collision properties to certain areas of the cloth.…For example, I've got a scarf that's going to land on this character's neck,…and what I need to have happen in this shot is I want the scarf to blow in the…wind, but it needs to stay on the character's neck.…I could assign stickiness to the entire scarf, but if I did that, then it…wouldn't be allowed to blow in the wind.…What would happen is, as soon as it touches any other dynamic object,…it would just stick there, and stay there.…
What I want is to have stickiness around here in the back of his neck, and no…stickiness everywhere else.…And I can achieve that using painting dynamic attributes per vertex.…I'm going to open up the Attribute Editor; with that cloth object selected, I'll…hit Control+A. I just want to point out, in the nucleus solver node, that I have…changed the Time Attributes, Start Frame to frame 100.…That means that the simulation will begin on frame 100.…
