Does it need to deform properly, or is this just a modelling question?

well i am going to animate a bball going through the net soo it does to need to be able to interact with the ball.. and the camera wont be very close soo it doesnt have to be too high quality but it does have to look good.

make a poly pipe. switch to side view create a profile curve for the net. do a revolve. convert to poly. make sure there are enough polygons for it to deform nicely. make it cloth and select the top row of vertices. transform constrain them to the pipe. drop a sphere through the pipe.


would that not work?

hoop video
is this what you mean?
the curve was just to make the net part and the pipe was for the rim.

you can spend more time on this obviously. try some of the cloth presets or something.

Okay, I captured my first (yay) maya capture creating a net, which I think is sorta okay, but not great. It's uploading on youtube, massive file oops, so I'll post a link when it's done. Hope it's at least mildly helpful for you.
