ncloth Tutorial-Shattering a Glass
Ncloth is a very powerful tool in Maya. It is not only used to do clothing but also doing special kind of effects. Some great rigid body dynamics can be achieved through ncloth dynamics very easily. If you set up things correctly you can do a very big amount of rigid body dynamics with Maya ncloth without compromising the quality. We already did some nice ncloth effects early. In this tutorial I am showing the capabilities of ncloth for doing shattering effect of a glass after hit by a ball. The very same technique can be used to create cracking of wall/earth etc... This can be achieved by mapping certain parameters of ncloth via ramp and animating the ramp accordingly. Using your favourite compositing software you can nicely blend these effects with your video. Topics covered. Creating the shatters using rockit shatter plugin. Doing the dynamics with ncloth. Preparing for the rendering. Final compositing with After Effects.

Rigid Body Optimization In Maya
Rigid Body Optimization In Maya
In this tutorial, we cover how to optimize rigid body simulations. We take advantage of proxy, or stand in objects, to reduce computation time.
