How do I make Paint Effects tubes respond to dynamic forces?
I'm using Maya 4.0 on Win2000. In the on-line guide, it says that it is possible to make Paint Effects tubes respond to dynamic forces like gravity and drag, but it doesn't explain how. I'm using one of the presets (Mohekan hair) on a model, but I want it to flop as the character moves.
I've tried making the hair into a soft body, but there is no real geometry, so it won't convert.
How can I get that hair to respond to gravity and movement without having to animate it directly?
Many thanks for your help.
