Dear Forumers,

I have been looking at various tutorials and am trying to create a car that crashes, whilst the engine explodes and then crashes into some sand.

This is obviously very complicated but i believe I am beginning to get my head around the workflow.

Currently I would love some advice on how to get my car bodywork to deform in a kind of crumpling way. This also has to look relatively realistic whilst closeup (not crazy closeup but the camera isn't always going to be REALLY far).

Is vellum a good way to go (can the cloth be ramped up to be tough like metal)? Any other tips or links to good tutorials?

Thanks in advance.

You will have a very hard time doing this in Vellum my experience.

I would do an RBD sim with glue-to-soft constraints. Then use a point deform to deform using the RBD sim to bend the original geometry.
