Here's a file which allows you to make your own cloth using the tips of invisible Hair but it allows all the effectors, such as Shader, Random, Formula, etc, to be used on the cloth to give the precise look you want instead of being at the mercy of dynamics.

That is great and makes my head hurt in the correct fashion. Thanks for sharing!

  • Thank you!  Glad you like it 

     Wait till you see some of the incredibly cool spinoffs I'm going to do from this technique

    It's like having the X particles XP skinner built into Cinema 4D without the expense

    Thanks again for all your help with this. I'm starting to understand expresso a little better now. Here's a scene i was able to create by adopting your layout.

    My expresso group is far from elegant though. basically I had to copy the entire chain for each segment and reference a different hierarchy each time. I also had to add in increments of ten on each chain to the index output of the object index node before sending it into the point index input.

  • Very clever! It shows you now really know your Xpresso.

    I couldn't think of a way to not make it modular like you did. Iteration Node wouldn't work.

  • Alec: I figured out how to do it with the single module after all.

    The code might have a few new tricks for you. Check out how the stream of 0-99 index numbers is used to cycle through the Guides and the Segments sequentially.

    Wow nice job. Modulo seems like a very powerful function. I'm glad I know what it does now and that it's there.

    So that should make it easier to add in more segments and get more details without having to make individual settings for each segment.

  • Thank you

    Yes, Modulo is really handy

    Now you should be able to make really high resolution cloth objects. I'm going to make a practice one now so I can see fine displacements from the shaders and effectors.

    Have fun!

  • airbusch: Thanks!

    I'm having fun doing a million spinoffs with Hair Xpresso. It's amazing what you can do with it.
