Cloth release constraints

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, 

I'm new to Houdini, I've only been using it for the past 2 months so I'm just figuring out the very basics. 

I've made a very simple cloth animation where the points are held in place using the pintoanimation attribute. 

This all works fine, the problem is when I animate amount of points driving the pintoanimation attribute it isn't updated in the animation even though I can see it changing in the Geo spreadsheet. 

I've attached a stripped down file, 

I appreciate the help in advance!

 

Thanks

In this situation you can run a SOP solver in series with the cloth solver. Inside the SOP solver you simply fetch the geometry with the animated value, pintoanimation, and copy it to the points on the current frame.
