Description

nCloth is a very powerful simulation tool that ships natively with Maya. It works with Mayas nucleus system which is intuitive and easy to use. nCloth is also able to interact with other nucleus basedsimualtio9n such ads nParticle, nHair nDynamics etc.

One of the most common first steps into using nCloth is to generate a waving flag. This course will be using this common entry level activity as this is an easy way in. As well as explaining the tools and techniques in depth, this course will also be taking this exercise a step further. We will be looking at additional techniques such as tearing cloth, lighting and rendering the scene and compositing the flag in VFX plate. For the compositing of the flag, I will show you how to approach the shot in Nuke and then after Effects. The course will summarise with a final assignment where you will need to utilise the skills and techniques learnt in the course.

The only pre-requisites to this course are as follows:

A basic understanding of navigating Maya
A working copy of Maya
A working copy of Nuke and/or After Effects

The rest I will teach you from the ground up across 1 main exercise
