Clothfx - Dynamic Cloth Tearing Plugin

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.

Features:

  • Generated/Custom Tearing
  • Make Collider(trigger object)
  • Preview Tears in Viewport
  • Irregular/Jagged Cuts
  • Enable Subdivision
  • Dynamics(Pin active vertices, Mass, Friction,Damp, Bend, Solver Speed)
  • Simulation Baking Tools
  • Export/Import Tool
  • New Dynamics system(Custom)
  • New Pinning Editor
  • Dynamic Inflate system/modifier
  • Simplified Cloth Settings UI/ UI Re-Design
  • Projection Cutting/Face-Splitting(Custom)


Note: When installing, install as a zipped folder.  Once enabled, ClothFX v4 will be located in the Physics Tab. Now supports Blender 2.8 Beta! Because it is still in beta & changes are being made, you should expect some errors, but no worries! They are completely new to me as well, so please let me know if you run into any & I will update the add-on to the most recent 2.8 Build.


Recent updates log:

  • Added Export/Import tools
  • UI re-design(simplified cloth settings UI)
  • Custom Tear Maps(Knife Tool support)
  • New Dynamics System(Custom)
  • Dynamic Inflate Modifier(Custom)

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/
