Description

In this series of Maya tutorials, we will focus on how to use Maya's robust nCloth system to simulate everyday clothing. You'll learn everything from how to simulate various clothing types, to exploring ways to prevent interpenetration between passive and active nCloth objects. We'll also cover how to save setup time with presets and how to create custom presets of our own. By the end of the training, you will have a solid understanding of nCloth properties that you can use to simulate clothing realistically! Software required: Autodesk Maya 2013.
