Top movie mate. I'd been looking for a cloth tutorial for quite a while and was delighted when I found yours.

Its not like that.
I am lifetime member. I could download all vip tutorials but I prefer the free ones. I think the free movies are to learn stuff and the vip ones are to improove the learned. I never knew how to use cloth in maya. Now I will learn it. Thank you guys.

Default a little more about solver scale.

hi , this tutorial is cool, great for cloth starters, but a few things i would like to contribute. about the solver scale and the size of the character on grid. in maya help files i found the logic of handling such issues , its as follows... and it works

Scale the solver
If you are working in units smaller than real-world units, you can increase the Solver Scale attribute. This attribute lets you control the scale of the internal coordinate system of the solver.

When Solver Scale is set to 1.0 (the default), the solver coordinate system is the same as that used by Maya. When Solver Scale is set to 2.0, the solver coordinate system is two times larger than the one used by Maya.

For example, if your 3D character is 6 inches tall in the Maya workspace but you want the clothes to look and behave as if your character is 5 feet (60 inches) tall, you can set the solver scale to 10.

solver scale = desired size / Maya size

10 = 60" / 6"

The solver scale doesn't change the actual size of the cloth, it just makes the cloth behave as though it were a different size.


thanx again for a cool tutorial.... its a must for cloth beginners.
cheers

Unhappy Maya cloth I need help!!!

First off, thanks for the tutorial.

I followed it through, but the results I am getting on my own character are very dissapointing and frustrating.

It seems that no matter what I try, I keep ending up with a shirt that looks likes crinkled paper. As well, it fits far snugger than I want it to. I have been pulling my hair out trying everything I can think of, but the results are the same.

Any advice from anyone would be appreciated. I may end up with a naked character at the rate I am going.

Thanks

Allen

Default Thank you

I just want to say thanks for this tutorial. It's insane trying to find any instruction online that works well. Especially FREE! For those who are interested in cloth Simply maya has at least one more tutorial and other then the Icabod tutorial from Alias (it's old, and came with Unlimited), Sybex publish a really good book called Maya: Secrets of the Pros. Check it out if it's your thing! Good hunting everyone! Thanks again for the freebees SM!
