Fem Cloth H15

Recommended Posts

 hi community, some times ago i've got a pretty simple task - make a waving flag, you know, object, solver, wind force. Buuut, in h15 cloth become a little strange. Wind force do some strange stuff with fem cloth, btw in tutorial "waving flag" http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini15.0/cloth/flagin help side fx suggest to use wind force but in here http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini15.0/cloth/influencing_cloth sfx told :"You should not use the Wind Force DOP or any of the other forces in DOPs  because they will generate inferior results compared with the Air Drag model.". Okay, buut when i tryed to use External Velocity Field it didnt work, after that i found this: http://forums.odforce.net/topic/24155-forces-in-dops/ and http://forums.odforce.net/topic/17556-cloth-arbitrary-vel-field/. So external velocity doesn't work too, according that, i have not any working wind force? Or i had missed something?

In a second way i need an advice about this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11GUii0MKvM i've got alot of troubles with flags locating at the top of the mast . How to make close enough simulations? On forums i found a lot of old good setups but, they dose not work in houdini 15. Thanks for help

Haha, that's my ship, Göteborg!! Well, not mine per se, but she's usually parked just by one of my favorite café's here in Gothenburg, when she's not out sailing that is. :D


About the cloth setups, it's not very complicated to get good results, I'll try to dig out the basis for this setup tomorrow, if I find it, I'll post it in the thread...

Aah, I thought I had used FEM but that was a grains setup - though grains works well for this type of setup, here's a 5 minute, basic, flag-in-the-wind type setup... :D
