edit vinyl for awning

Modeling an awning (dutch canopy).
What is the best way to edit the vinyl fabric around the frame should I sculpt or is it possible to edit
without going through the frame work.

how about using cloth simulation and let it drop ?

show some pictures

happy cl

Yes I was trying also did some pinning.
Should I delete something when retry ?

Want to get this effect like they did whit maya see 19:30 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MR9tMTCjLI

also depends how realist you want it
could simply be done with spinning or 1/2 circle too!

Want it pretty realistic as in real.
I know it should look like sections was just for testing with the cloth modifier.

show up what you get !

how are you going to UV map it or simple mat colors ?

if there is a lot of folds around and you have a good image you might be able to texture paint it

This is the final dutch canopy I made today. Just want the vinyl fabric look with a more natural shape. Its to stiff now.

Sorry did not work for me.
I am going to improve the dutch-canopy with subsurf first.
Smooth is messing up the object.

what do you mean ?
your file or my file ?

do you have original flat awning plane with curves at bottom

happy bl

I meant your file I see you added some weight painting to the vector group dutch canopy.
Problem is the vinyl fabric is not falling down but looks as if there is wind coming form below as soon as I press Alt+A…

I did not use your objects it is just a plane over the bars
just do Atl-A and it should run from frame 0 to 250 I think

or just change the time frame on bottom window to see where plane goes
but first I think you need to run Alt-A ounce up to 250 frames
then you can change the frame number

Then you added the wrong blend file?
I know how the cloth modifier works.
Wish it was just as simple as with maya see the link above.
Thanks

sorry your right I upload wrong file !

do you want the right one for anim cloth ?

in any case it wont solve the ends of this canopy
have to be edited manually to get right shape

but at least the top should look more realist

happy bl

No thanks.
But I m sure it would be possible with blender.

Added shape key pins then tweaking the cloth material.
At last I added multi resolution modifier for sculpting (default skulp tool) rinkles on the side.

Solved
