Two more tutorials (External)

If you haven't seen the short The Monk & The Monkey, by Brendan Carroll and Francesco Giroldini you should really take the time to watch it. It's only 4:27 long.

The Monk & The Monkey from Brendan Carroll on Vimeo.

Francesco Giroldini has created and posted two nCloth tutorials that I think anyone who's interested in cloth simulation should watch, even if they consider themselves to be a complete novice. They're both very easy to understand and you'll learn a lot.

The first is Joint Driven Cloth Simulation. This 29:32 length tutorial "shows you how to easily use joints, blendshapes or any other kind of deformer to control your cloth simulation". -145 MB .mov file

The second tutorial is his Intro to nCloth. At 47:42, it goes over a lot of topics that will gently ease people into cloth simulation using Maya's nCloth. - 212 MB .mov file

Go to the tutorial page:

Note: You will have to download the tutorials.

This guy seems pretty cool. You should look over his blog in general.
