I must be missing something obvious here, but i seem to not have a lot of cloth related features:
According to the helpcard i'm missing from the cloth shelf: Delete Constraint, Paint Tearable and Attach constraint to animation.
Also according to helpcard to set up tearing there should be a Capabilities tab on the cloth solver, a Cloth Tearing Properties dynamics node… possibly more missing than i know.
This was with 12.5.316.22 and 12.5.371 under Linux and 12.5.371 under Windows 8.
Anyone else have the same?
