We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the latest Carbon build 9.0.0 (plug-in for Houdini).
This build introduces some great features that significantly increase the versatility of Carbon Cloth and Plumage/N-Lattice.

To request a Carbon evaluation:

The two main new features are;

1) Angular plasticity. This is a great feature for creating more believable cloth simulation.
Using angular plasticity artists can control how fast folds/creases recover. It's also paintable and animatable and so fully art directable.

2) Carbon Welding painted attributes parameters for radius, stiffness, and viscosity.
This provides artists with great styling control over feather/fur/hair/foliage.

In the video above we can see the impact that changing the welding has on the resulting styling of the hair.
