@adp the stress test looks good, it's good to see some people experimenting and does show exactly what can be done in the cloth room, when one puts in a bit of an effort.
A bit of a lot of effort in case of animations. I'm living proof - a 11 seconds animation took me 12-14 hours to prepare, it only had one stupid blanket (just a plain rectangle with no frills of any kind) and I spent some 70-80% of my time adjusting the freaking cloth animation to get it under control.
Cloth animations may be ok in Poser for the pin up render, but are a terrible time consumer for animations. I pretty much gave up on them, and nowadays I just use morphs from the morphing tool to simulate flows - have much better control too, that way.
What were you trying to do with the blanket if I may ask?
