Blowing Cloth
I know how to make some cloth using Cloth and i know how to make something hit it. But how do you make it look like the wind is blowing it. Ive tried particles and i couldnt find a way for them to collide. Or will some kind of field work?

I may be wrong but what about the "wind" field?

sure.... just select your cloth, go to the Dynamics part of Maya then from "Field", go to "Wind"

Not sure but you might need to add gravity as well. You know... it's like force and counter-force...
