Product animation in Blender without using a sim

This piece showcases another product animation, modelled in rhinoceros 3D, animated in blender 3D. The challenge here was once again to create something that rendered quickly, in this instance the renders came in at under 10 seconds a frame for something relatively photo realistic. This was achieved without using a cloth simulation, I used a combination of modifiers, bones and other hacks, to achieve a smooth animation. The client was over the moon with the results.
