I'm having some trouble using this method: How to make a realistic droplet drop on leaf? to model the motion of palm fronds using the cloth simulation. In the above link, weight painting is used to create varying stiffness across the leaf. But when I try this on the palm frond, the cloth is either completely stiff (anywhere where I have painted non-blue colours) or completely loose where I have painted blue, ignoring all of the intermediary colours/values in the vertex group. I have checked all the settings and tried to match them 1:1 with the blend file from the link above but have had no luck.

Thanks, Rowan
