I have googled, experiemented, and torn the hair from my head and still this creature refuses to behave.
Here’s what I’m trying to do:
I have placed a Cloth Modifier on an article of clothing, which is parented to the correct armature and life is dandy. What I want to do is apply this modifier to freeze it in place, effectively having the modifier model the item for me.
Whenever I hit the apply button either just “Apply” or “Apply as Shape” it reverts the article to the starting frame, not the current frame I’m on. The trick is I need to apply what I have so far, so that I can re-apply the modifier later on. I’m working on a landscape image (Yes, it will eventually be a still shot. I’m practicing my animation skills while I do these things), and there will be other elements and trying to key them all to be precisely what I want at a particular frame will be terribly difficult, especially if I can’t start freezing some of them (ie. this one) in time.
I appreciate any advice anyone can give. There isn’t a lot of tutorials and such on the Alpha version, but it’s the version my machine likes better. I apologize if this is a dorky question, I’ve only been working in Blender for a month or two.
