I have created a cape and pinned the vertices I wanted to stay stationery however when I go to animate it they unpin and repel themselves from the armor they are supposed to be near. I turned down the repel and collision distance down as far as possible and it still occurs. Any ideas?

The cloth simulator actually uses vertex weights (1 = pinned and 0 = unpinned).

Your vertex group has been assigned with 0 weight, as can be seen by entering weight paint mode (blue = 0 weight):

Reassign your vertex group with the weight slider on 1 (or paint some weights in weight paint mode):

Now the vertex group will have a weight of 1 and should stay pinned.

In the cloth modifiers physics settings enable pinning and select the cape vertex group.

  • $\begingroup$ it still shoots away from the armor $\endgroup$ – user2389 Mar 17 '14 at 19:00
  • $\begingroup$ @user2389 Hmm. in your file the cape is not near any armor at the start.. Could you possibly upload the part of the file with the cape and armor interacting? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Mar 17 '14 at 19:06
  • $\begingroup$ I have figured it out I just had to pin more vertexes that were weighted $\endgroup$ – user2389 Mar 17 '14 at 19:08
  • $\begingroup$ yes the original file was too large to upload so I had to Isolate the scene that was needed however when I did that it also re-adjusted the the male mesh and armor $\endgroup$ – user2389 Mar 17 '14 at 19:11
