Although your dress now
fits properly over the character, the dress itself seems to be made
of a very heavy material in a very low gravity environment. Ideally,
you want the dress to behave like a light weight material such as
silk in a gravitational environment similar to our own.
To improve the behavior of the dress
- Select the dress.
- Open the Attribute Editor and
select the nucleus1 tab.
the Scale Attributes section, set
the Space Scale to 0.016.
By reducing the Space
Scale attribute, Maya evaluates the large nCloth model
as if it were a much smaller object. This will result in a visibly increased
gravitational affect on the dress. For more information on Space Scale
- Select the nClothShape1 tab
and in the Dynamic Properties section
set Mass to 0.7.
the Dynamic Properties section
set Stretch Resistance to 140 and Compression
Resistance to 120.
By lowering the mass
of the cloth, Maya will simulate it as a lighter fabric such as
Increasing the Stretch
Resistance and Compression Resistance ensures that
the cloth will not become stretched or compressed too greatly as
a result of the increased affect of gravity from step 3.
nCache > Create New Cache.
Maya automatically plays
back the nCloth simulation and saves it to disk as a cache.
- Playback the scene.
The dress now behaves
more like a light weight material. However, this causes a problem
around the breasts where the dress now slips and hangs loose around
them rather than over them.
