LK Fabric gives you control over the geometry of the cloth down to the fibres which make up the threads which then in turn make up the fabric.
It supports motionblur, strand-texturing directly in ICE, fabric flowing over multiple surfaces and many more things.

This tool has come out of a series of commercials for Nike, which I got to work on at Royale http://www.weareroyale.com/ this summer.
They have graciously allowed me to share this tool-set with the community. Major thanks for that!

Big thanks also go to Billy Morrison, Ciaran Moloney and Andy Moorer who provided pages and pages of feedback during production and then used the tools to create all the pretty images.
Andy did a nice write-up about the production on the Softimage-mailing-list: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/xsi_list/hOECya3-bOA/JMNTPhu2qXUJ






Thanks to Leonard , Royale and everyone in it.
Softimage is increasingly looking like 3dsMax and its plugins.

That's a bit of a weird remark. Official development having slowed to a crawl, (generous) third-party devs are the only thing to keep Softimage afloat...
:D

Maybe, but it is more the feel i get that Softimage compounds/addons/plugins are starting to get the importance for the program like 3dsMax plugins are for 3dsMax. There are users that only use 3dsMax because of some of its plugins. At time Vray, its quality and its comparatively ease of use for example established and sustained a good part of 3dsMax market.

Okay, but the problem doesn't lie with the third-party development IMHO and thus I called your remark "weird" in the context of announcing Leo's addon. He is, after all, not to blame for the situation...

edit & PS - The question if and why Softimage has become/is becoming too dependent on plugins
seems an interesting topic for a separate thread, though...

No no, you understood me wrong then, instead i was praising the huge amount of addons, compounds, plugins that have appeared in recent years.

In the past Softimage was just the application itself. Not anymore.

:) No need to say sorry. We were seeing it from different perspective.

Hah, I do remember. I'm out of the country for a month now, but I'll make one for you once I'm back.
At this point your tutorials cover the functionality of the plugins so well, I'll have to get quite creative to complement those.
Probably something ice-centric.
