Are you looking to get the most out of your cloth work inside of Autodesk 3ds Max? Then you've come to the right place. The Turbo Training: Cloth Training Bundle
contains two jammed packed DVDs with over 7 hours of training to give you everything you ever wanted to know about the cloth system inside of 3ds Max.
The Cloth Techniques 3-hour disk includes understanding how cloth reads the modifier stack, GarmentMaker techniques, multi-layered clothing, bias-cut cloth, pleats and creases, animated constraints and plenty of helpful tips and tricks to enhance your workflow. Below is the tutorial listing:

The Advanced Cloth Workshop DVD then takes what you've learned in the first disk, and shows you even more ways to push cloth to its limit. Veteran animator Paul Hormis (who has been a part of both Blizzard Entertainment and Blur Studios during his 15 years of professional work) has assembled over 4 hours of incredible cloth effects and techniques for animators looking to push cloth to its limits and in the process, you'll learn how to use cloth in ways you never imagined.

These tools will help you do things with cloth more efficiently and easily than ever before.
