  1. Hi all, I'm going crazy trying to figure out what I thought was a simple and common problem to solve. I'm creating a walk-cycle of a man covered in flapping rectangles of paper. I'm scattering 1500 points over a mocap biped in a t-pose, interpolating the points on the animated version of the biped, creating a planar patch, defining pins, copying the planar patches to points, and then doing a cloth simulation with vellum (with biped and self collision). This all works just as suspected - awesome. The problem is, when I copy the planar patches to points they intersect with each other and they intersect with the biped on the first frame and stay like that as a result. I've tried a for each point loop with intersection analysis to remove planar patches that intersect but it would calculate on each frame (as opposed to only the first frame as I'd like) and was a big mess. I'm a novice and don't know what to do having spent a whole day trying to research/experiment. Please advise me on how to resolve this - would really appreciate it.
