  1. Hi EJ! Thank you for all the work you put into these comprehensive tutorials. I recently came across your soft body dynamic videos, highly beneficial. I was hoping to receive some advice or get pointed into the right direction with solving some cloth animation issues I’ve been having.

    I’m trying to send sexy ripples along the surface of a shirt, like turbulence, ideally without the world position of the shirt changing via any forces. It is from Marvelous Designer. I have experimented with x-particles (xpCloth tag), soft body tag, and cloth tag, along with adding thickness via Cloth Surface and xpSurface. Your recent tutorial about triggering cloth animations is the look I’m trying to achieve and seems straight forward. I chose the Cloth Tag as the driver of the animation. However, my geometry goes nuts when I have self-collision on; spikey shards shoot out of the surface when I press play. The shirt won’t get the spikes when self-collision is off, but then the shirt goes into itself. I played around with the sub sampling, the expert dynamics settings under the project settings panel. I’m not sure what the most efficient path is to get back on track. I’ve tried doing a lot of Googling, but I’ve using just enough keywords to get a bunch of things that don’t apply to what I’m doing. Anywho, any help you have would be much appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,
