Hey all,

I'm facing a bit of a problem right now with a project.

In the image you can see that I'm trying to attach the cloth roof to the tent poles sticking from the sides of the tower. However, I haven't found the exact way to get what I want like I have in that Cinema 4D image.

I am trying to retain the flat surface of the cloth while doing so, so far I know that I can simply use it like a normal flagpole but that felt too rigid and did not exactly attach itself to the model and just hovered above where it was placed essentially. I used the Node settings for that try.

So i'll need help with this as soon as possible.

P.S. At work we mainly use Cinema 4D for modelling and I'm coming from that background but for our recent project in UE4, I need to use 3DSMAX for exporting APEX simulation data.*
Title should say "simulating" my bad.
just youtewb it duud =V


search "preserve group cloth vertex" You can choose the vertices to freeze while simulating so they will appear like theyre attached to flagpoles while the rest of the cloth is simulated downwards.
mCloth + MassFX Rigid
Apply mCloth to cloth object and make poles static rigid bodies with MassFX.
Adjust mCloth parameters so that it either doesn't intersect with the barrel or pass through the pole objects.
Also, low poly objects don't really go well with the cloth physics. OpenSubDiv is your friend.

You see in that video as well, just like the 3rd image the vertices just hover and not -stick- to the model. I need the corners to stick to the model.

I'm going to try this,thank you

Do I add MassFX RB to the pole or the cloth object?
Step 1: Switch to Maya

Thank you for contributing.
Step 2: Delete Maya
Maya can't do what OP asked.
Pole, and cloth mod to cloth object.
