Hey everyone,

I have two questions that I thought I'd ask here; they're for a beginner's project I'm working on.

First one is, how would I go about animating strings on an instrument (in this case I have modeled a harp, with thing polygonal cylinders as the strings) to vibrate? Basically, I just want them to vibrate in a random fashion.

Second; I have followed this confetti tutorial from AREA, and I wanted to know how to start the dynamics from a certain frame, rather than at frame 1? (basically, wanted to start it at frame 7000 or so)

By the way, this is with Maya.
