What I am trying to create is products bursting through paper. Almost as if they were high school football players running through the cheerleader's huge paper sign and onto the field. Is there a way to do that via the cloth tag? Can anyone offer any insight or direct me to any decent tutorials? I was going to use the explosion effect, but that was a last resort.
bringing this thread from the graveyard-Im trying to accomplish the "players through a banner" look also. Been playing with cloth settings for a while and cant seem to get it right. If any experts see this and would like to help me out with a couple of questions, it is much appreciated.
*the object bursting through banner is actually taller than the banner, so it is also kind of like the tape at the end of a race (object isnt hidden by banner).
1-I want the banner to tear along a "seam" so that it appears an object rips through it, right now a huge chunk of cloth sticks to the front of the moving object. is there a way to paint a vertex map to tell it to rip along a single row of points?
2-Is there a way to "freeze" movement of a static cloth, so that it has the appearance of a banner (some give to the fabric, some very tiny ripples)? I can't figure out how to accomplish this with wind.
