Hi Phil,

Are you using the cloth stitch tool to achieve cloth tearing?
In that case, I would recommend using the Paint Tear tool instead.
The cloth stitch tool is no longer the recommended method for tearing.

If I specify a spring constraint relationship between the panels, the seams behave as they should reacting to forces however there are gaps between the panels. If I increase the spring constraint strength, the seams lock back to their original positions with no deformations...
