13 The setting for turning turbulence off. 14, we can clearly see the effect that damping has on the simulation. 14 Frame 109 before and after damping is applied. Turbulence has been turned off. 13, the Active parameter is currently off. This parameter is a binary choice. It is either on or off. To change the setting, use a 1 to indicate on and a 0 to indicate off. Maya then denotes the proper term in the value’s place. You could also type “on” or “off” as the Active value. 22 Maya Plugin Power A DAMP CLOTH Damping is an important force.

ON THE DVD 1. First, change the blue shader on the torus to roughly 75% transparent and zoom in slightly closer. 32. Run the simulation. The torus works successfully to stop the sphere from passing through, and the motion of the ball has a very realistic jelly-like feel to it. The hole in the torus now blocks the ball from passing. mb does not work because we changed the size of the sphere. The goal now is to make this sphere, which is significantly larger than the hole, squeeze through the smaller passage.

36, the cloth does a nice job of keeping up with the motion. 36 Frame 220 of the test simulation. A bit of maintenance is needed for the cloth to act more realistically. 37 shows the cloth spinning in on itself, causing severe intersecting geometry, and the polygons are visible in the final render. The skirt could be further subdivided or polygons could be smoothed, but the geometry can also be replaced with something more render-friendly and flexible. Rewind the Timeslider to the beginning frame.
