Hello,

I’m trying to freeze a cloth simulation at a certain point in the timeline (it’s a cape being dropped onto a figure, and coming to rest), and once “frozen” have it behave as a collider body. I want things to bounce off of it.
Can’t seem to figure it out. Thanks for any suggestions!

Hi kelly,

Cache the Cloth simulation inside the Cloth Tag.
Define the frame it needs to stop.
Use a Object Manager> Tags> Character> Point Cache.
Set the exact timing from start to that very moment; Cache this.
In Cloth, un-check the Enable option.
The Cloth object can have now (or earlier, depends on your scene) the Dynamic Collider Tag.
Set up the Dynamic you need.

All the best
