How to make a Realistic Towel, Carpet and Grass in 3ds max

3d towel

The results will look good, especially close up, but that technique is perhaps overkill, especially if the object is off in the distance.

Copy \ Paste Biped animation
Additional Info:

This script method was inspired by Copy/Paste Obects by Christopher Grant.
It’s not a TRUE copy/paste via the windows clipboard – but it will let you very quickly copy animation bip from one file to

another.

Usage:
Select the biped objects with animation you want to copy. Run ‘copy bip’. Now run the ‘paste bip’ into either the same file

or you can load another instance of max and ‘paste’ animation bip into another biped.
