Balloon-crash // Cloth

Recommended Posts

Hey there :)

Modeling should be the right subforum for this(?!).

I'm still new to Houdini but want to use it in a shortfilm about a crashed pilot. (pretty eager to learn)

As a set-extention, i want to use a half-deflated hot-air balloon, lying on its side.

The wind should play with it, fluttering Cloth and strings attached to the balloon-basket.

What's the best way to accomplish this task? ;)

Are there any tutorials about inflating/deflating Cloth?

I'm imagining some parts of the cloth flapping against each other, then balancing themselves out again with some general big balloon-movement.

Clothsim?

Metaballs?

How can i prevent the cloth from sinking to the ground completely?

Best regards

Marc

Hi Cool Idea

"Are there any tutorials about inflating/deflating Cloth?"

Use the Animation Stiffness maybe that will work
