Question about cloth modifier
show user profile  nyberg

I have a simple character and a robe that i want the character to wear. The character will most likely only stand still or run.
Do i have to make an animation for the character and then simulate the robe around the character with the cloth modifier?

Thanks in advance.

you have multiple ways of achieving what you want.
you can indeed use the cloth modifier with an animation so you get motion information in your cloth.
other way of doing it is modeling it yourself acording to the desired pose.

if it is standing still you dont really need an animation but you can just simulate on top so the cloth gets the information it needs.if you want a running shot you will need to make a little previous animation so the cloth gets the information for the frame you want.

Hello there

beautiful ;3

Hmm okay. I am going to try to animate the character first then and hopefully everything will go smooth from there.
