strap leather modeling in MayaLT

Does anyone know if the LT version of Maya is capable of leather modeling? I need to model short strap leathers for mounting equipment. I asked on the Polycount forum but I havent got any replys there yet.

If I am understanding the question correctly, I am sure it could be done.

Using a cloth simulating on a thick plane, with the leather attributes (should actually be a drop down selection for cloth simulation properties), set it to simulate to get a “leather like” response.

Unfortunately Maya LT does not support nCloth simulations :\

Yes, LT dont have nCloth :frowning: Beeing a modelingtool, its wierd that they didnt add such feature. Maybe I have to move my model into Blender to get the leather like effect or use CV curves in Maya.
