    Hi! I wanted to know if there is any way that the wind force affects only one object because Im doing this scene where I have a flag (which has movement thanks to the wind force) but it’s affecting the table cloth I have far away from the flag, and it’s making the tablecloth to fly away.

    As you can see in the picture i have the wind force (bottom left) far from the table cloth ( which is at the top right)

    Regardless of where they’re located, forces like wind will affect every applicable object in the scene (the cloth flag and tablecloth in your scene) unless they are restricted by a falloff. Just add a field (box for example) around the flag and the wind will only affect it.

    Another option: Instead of using a wind force to blow the flag, you could use the wind parameters inside the flag’s cloth tag to add wind and turbulence as desired.
