Lesson 2. Quickstart (part 1)
In this lesson we will learn how to create a new nCloth object, how to access the input mesh, and how to edit common nucleus attributes. Topics covered in this video: Accessing nCloth commands; Finding the Nucleus node; Creating the first nCloth simulation.
Learn a time-saving workflow to Maya nCloth, techniques for realistic results, and creative practices for a multitude of cloth simulations. Contains over 3 hours of project-based training and guides artists step-by-step through the powerful capabilities of the Maya Nucleus technology. Perfect for artists new to nCloth. Popular highlights include: Overview of Nucleus Node; Realistic Cloth Simulation; Scene Scale and Settings; Time Scale; Mass; Dynamics Forces; Friction; Dynamic Attributes; Rigidity; Passive Object Collisions; Glue Strength; Pressure; Tearing Surfaces; Caching nCloth; Deformation Resistance; Lift and Drag; Controlling Scene Playback; Collision Layers; Painting Values and Property Maps; Input Mesh Attraction vs. Rest Shapes; Stretch/Compression Resistance; Links; Constraints.
