Does anybody have some more information on Digital Domain's (proprietary) RBD system called 'Drop' ?

Did it somehow influence the integration of the bullet solver in houdini 12 ?

Since it's a propriety system there isn't much information on it outside of what you showed there, and this Siggraph video: http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1837059 . I'm guessing the only influence it really had on H12 is that it may have just helped Sidefx decide to implement Bullet at all, though I doubt any of it actually came from DD.

thanks for that link.. I did not know about this. sweet.

well, I guessed the same, but just wanted to ask.

I also guess that nobody else can share more actual 'internal' knowledge, right ?

They did talk about their destruction tools at SIGGRAPH this year. Don't know if the there are any notes released although.
