Stretching & Tearing Cloth in Blender


When Sean Kennedy needed a tearing cloth simulation, he turned to Twitter to get some help. And he quickly got it.

This week I ran into something I couldn't solve quickly, so I reached out to the Blender community for some help, and wow, did they deliver! After @Syziph shared his solution, I made a short tutorial showing what he came up with, a quick and easy cheat for stretching and tearing cloth in Blender. Hope you like it!
