ClothFX- Dynamic Cloth Tearing System

by AlbertoFX in Scripts and Addons

*DEMO VIDEO MADE BY GRANT WILK, HOST OF REMINGTON GRAPHICS

Tear-able Cloth. Made possible.

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 add-on:



A trigger 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:

Trigger 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.

Features:

  • Generate pre-tears to active object by adding a tearing system

  • Enable/Disable trigger objects

  • Tear count, seed(randomize)

  • Preview Tears(view changes in viewport)

  • Refine Edges (smoother tears)

  • Edge Strips

  • Enable Subdivision

  • Enable Dynamics( Pin active vertices, Mass, Friction,Damp, Bend, Solver Speed)

  • Bake/Free Bake Tearing simulation

  • Clear all Tearing System domains


Note: When installing, install as a zipped folder.  Enable, & a new tab called "ClothFX" will be added to the toolshelf.

Upcoming Features(v3):

  • Inflate tool:

 

  • Export tools
  • Dynamic Proximity

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: https://openvisualfx.com/2018/04/16/the-clothfx-add-on/

Refund:

ClothFX is available with a 30-days money back guarantee. That means that if you don't like the tool, you can choose to get a full refund or you may contact us about any issues through the blender market messenger, as well as emailing us directly to our email @ [email protected] 

We value your feedback, so dont forget to leave an honest review!

My cloth is not behaving how it should when running simulation, what can I do?

Make sure to Enable Dynamics, which emulates the cloth before it is torn, in order to maintain pre-teared mesh. You can quickly pin vertices as well.

Are updates free?

Of course! all add-on future updates are free.

Can I export the simulation?

No yet, but will definitely be included in v3.
