Freezing vertex locations for cloth simulation

Hi everyone. I want to do a cloth simulation of a flag on a pole blowing in the wind. The only thing I’m stuck on is getting the verticies on the left side of the flag to bind to the pole and getting the pole to stay completely still. If I can just get help on getting the verticies to bind to the pole, I think I will be able to finish the simulation without any more help. Thanks!

have you tried “pinning” ps you might find the wind force numbers need to be quite a bit higher then you might expect

I have not tried pinning. How is that done? And I already know that the wind force numbers are much higher than expected. I played around with wind and cloth yesterday and now I understand how it works.

Alright, I got it! Thank you guys for your help!
