How to Use nCloth to Drive a MASH Network

Damon Lavenski Shows an Iterative Process Using nCloth to Drive Chain Mail Created by a MASH Network.

Maya’s motion graphics toolkit, MASH recently included the ability to work with dynamics, adding bullet physics to the toolset. Of course, Maya has its own set of dynamics tools with the unified Nucleus engine. Why not use the two together? Damon Lavenski shows one method for using Maya’s nCloth to drive a MASH network.

The tutorial centers around creating a dynamic section of Chain Mail, which of course is set up using MASH’s replication tools. The tutorial takes us through an iterative process that uses a dynamic cloth effect to drive the Chain Mail.
