what I’m having problems with is most of all the cloth, do i set up the armatures the same as the arms which is what i have now…
i also tryed the python script for cloth at
http://awalker.freeservers.com/Blender/script.html
and i could not get it to work…while were all waiting for Dynamica…
what is the best way to tackle this problem,
Armatures VS script
This is mt first attempt using armatures, and the problem is most likly simple so please enlighten me

armateurs won’t do great job.you will see your character’s body coming out of the cloath sometimes.all you need is something like softbodies…which can only be acheived by script.i don’t know much python but still i’m trying to write a script with which vertices of a mesh can be parented to empties and can be moved as the empty is moved.you can first parent the cloath to the armateur and then at the time of anim when the body tries to come out you can adjust the cloath by moving the empties.it won’t be spectacular but will do the job somehow.

ok thanks kos I’ll give that a try…
I’m not sure if this is the right place to post this…
allright when i run the clothWin script
i get this message:

PYTHON SCRIPT ERROR:
Traceback <most recent call last>:
File “topixinit”, line 7, in ?
ImportError: DLL load failed: One of the library files needed to run this application
cannot be found.

what does this mean
