Ripping cloth, possible?

Anyone know of a way to easily tear clothing in blender?
I’m trying to get a closeup shot of a peace of cloth ripping when another object collides with it.

Try my add-on ClothFX on the blendermarket.

You can also try the Molecular addon which handles cloth reasonably well. If you set up the link strength correctly you should enable it to tear when enough force is exerted.

Really it depends on how much of a super-realistic closeup you need. All of these methods are going to look pretty…simulation-y, most likely.
