Group node bounding box

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a cloth sim which has a group node with bounding box active holding the cloth in place with points.  During the animation,  I have the cloth tear apart down the middle.  Half way down the tear, I would like to release the constraints, or move the bounding box so the cloth is free to move with no constraints.  I'm using H13.  I hope I'm describing my issue correctly.

Try animating  the 'Activation' on the Guide Option of the constraint node. This should work in H14

I'm actually trying to finesse this file http://forums.odforce.net/topic/19579-tearable-cloth-h13-wip/. So if you open it up you can see what I'm kinda talking about.  He has a group node which is holding the cloth in place while it tears.  I'm just wanting to break that connection at a certain time within the tear.  

BTW, great instagram pics.  :)

Hey cowboy,

 

The cloth is using a Sop Solver in DOP Network. You can break this constraint by animating the "pintoanimation" attribute to 0 in the SOP Solver. 

 

To to this in your file:

Inside the "sopsolver_tearcloth" node, go to the top node "dop_geometry". Drop down a switch under the "dop_geometry" node and set it to something like $F>=5, or whatever frame you want to release the constraint on. Then insert a node coming out of the "dop_geometry" and feeding into the second input of the switch. The node can be a wrangle node, attribute create node, or whatever, and it sets "pintoanimation" to 0
