Connecting a Sail to a ship with Spline Rope.

Recommended Posts

I'm animating a miniature sailing ship, and would like to connect a cloth sail to a spline rope. Here's an example of the set up (The highlighted geometry is the rope):




Trying to figure out the best way to attach that point that will allow the cloth dynamic to exert pull on the rope, but for that connection to have tension as well. Any insights would be much appreciated!

    I should add, in the picture above, the rope is static geometry, no dynamics or anything applied yet.

    I would only know how to do it with X-Particles dynamics, in case you have it ?

    how about this? it's all cloth, had to trick with some field force to prevent the ropes from stretching and added some fake bulging with a plain effector in deformer mode.
