i need some way to animate a hammer hitting lots of bottle tops and the bottle tops all flying in to the air.
if anyone could write a tutorial, or direct me to one that could help, that would be much appreciated.

Could you be a little bit more specific on how you want the hammer to hit the bottle tops? I don't really understand how you want it to be done. If you have 3ds max version 5 or above you should use reactor to create the bottle tops flying off when the hammer hits them. Try looking at the tutorials on reactor that come with 3ds max. You can also look at the tutorials in this thread . If you have an older version of 3ds max, though, you'll have to animate the bottle tops by hand. (or you could use a plugin that can calculate dynamics if you find one)

Hope this helped. Good luck to you! :thumbsup:
