So I'm trying to get this effect to work. I have allready created a basic curtain which moves with fractal noise using the swirly fractal type. But I also want the curtain to drop down/unfold from above with some weight in it. Is this possible to do in AE, or do I need to get it made in 3D?

you should take a look at zaxwerks' 3d flag plugin:

note, for using zax plugins, disable multiprocessing (unless this has been fixed now). and i'm not sure they have the cs5 version out yet.

In addition to Kevin's suggestion, Freeform -- which comes bundled with AE 10 (aka CS5) -- does pretty much the same thing as Zaxwerks.

There are oftentimes a couple of ways to skin a cat in AE.
