Clothfx - Dynamic Cloth Tearing

by AlbertoFX in Addons


Blender Cloth Effects. Made simple & fast.

ClothFX simplifies cloth tearing within blender by providing you with a set of tools, which allow for instant, real-time cloth tearing simulations. Below you can see the different types of tears you can generate when using this tool:

A collider object will trigger the edge splitting of the pre-teared mesh. This can be done on contact, or using proximity mode, which will tear by distance, rather than mesh collision. Here are the Trigger options as follows:

Collider object options:

  • Mesh Volume(enable on contact)
  • Proximity(trigger object distance)
  • Mesh+Proximity Volume(both)
  • Particles(use trigger object particles to define tears)
  • Collision settings(Outer/Inner)
  • Stress Parameter(Enable Dynamics)

Fast simulation workflow.

With ClothFX, you don't need to pre-bake any simulation. Tearing is done in realtime, & baked afterwards.

Custom Tear Maps:

Art direction is key in the visual effects world. The most requested feature is now supported in ClothFX & it gives you full control over your cloth effects simulations.

Visual Effects Artist Sean Kennedy shows you how to create a transition effect using ClothFx, similar to the one used in a TV show! You can find the tutorial here:
