SyFlex was used extensively in the award winning short film, Ryan. Director Chris
Landreth found Syflex to be useful not only for all the clothing in the film, but
also for special morfing effects.
Chris gave us a few words:
"Syflex is without a doubt the most powerful plugin
we used on our short film "Ryan". The design for
the film called for extremely realistic cloth, and by
golly, syflex simulated those cloth models with utter
reliability and predictability. No pops, no exploding
geometry, no flaky interpenetrations, no unexpected
progam halts. In other words, really cool clothing,
really reliable animation to produce it. I can honestly
say it took weeks off our schedule to have this part
of our pipeline work so unexpectedly well".
