Unhappy My clothes on my character don't animate

Heya guys

Thanks to that Maya cloth tutorial, I managed to get my cloth to wrap in my character and now its in the state I am happy with. My character is rigged and when I move any part, for example, if I move his arm, the cloth don't move/animate.

Aren't I suppose to get a realtime cloth reation/animation? I asked 2 boards this question and I really didn't get a result

Any suggestion would be sooooo appreciated :bow:

EDIT: Sorry guys, I posted this in the animation forum, I though this will fit under the newbie forum :blush:

I assume clothing is a difficult subject. Any suggestion would be still appreciated but I think I saw a video dealing with clothing. I guess I'm going to get it

Cloth will not simulate when you scrub along the timeline. Delete the cache and then allow the simulation to run, create a playblast to see the results. IF still no joy it could mean that the collision was not created correctly.

Thx R@nSiD. lol I though that when the cloth simulate to the state you want that they'll animate in real time. But yea, it did actually work.

Now when I move my character, his pants drops off
