Cloth Animation Problem


I completed the bed cloth tutorial on this website and created an animation of the cloth falling onto the bed. The problem is that once the cloth is haf falen onto the bed, the corners and edges (where the cloth goes from horizontal to hanging vertical) are bouncing up and down a bit. It looks as though there are some serious bed bugs running around underneath the sheet. The problem is that I didn't model any bed bugs!!! So what is the cause of this motion which remains even after the sheet should be sitting motionless on the bed? Please help!

Here is a quick animation I did of what I'm talking about. You can see that once the cloth drops, the edges are jumping up and down: http:\\\cube.avi

It looks like maybe you have a wind force on that object. Maybe make sure you dont have it, or at least turn it down. You could also just leave it like that, and put it in an outdoor enviroment, and call it moving in the wind. user added image

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
