Storing an nCache

If our animation looks good then we can go ahead and render it, but there are a couple of things we need to do first. First of all the simulation is not fully in motion on frame one of the time line, it's all ready kind of standing straight up on frame one. Before we can render a dynamic simulation there's a couple things that we want to do. First of all we don't have an initial state to the simulation, it's in a kind of neutral state on frame one. And what I'd like to have is the grass fully in motion on frame one.

And to do that, we'll need to set an initial state. And this is similar to what you would do in other dynamic areas of Maya such as Ncloth or Particles. However, the process is kind of a lot different and kind of more complicated. What we need to do is we need to consider the nHairs start curves and rest curves. You can't see it here but there's multiple curve systems under the hood. And right now we don't have any conditions for the start curves or the ...
