View Full Version : soft body freaking out!

04 April 2010, 12:55 AM
Hi, this is my first time using soft bodies and I have run into a problem already. When I playback the simulation, it starts off fine, then it will start to act crazy. I know it is a matter of adjusting some settings, but I have no idea of what to adjust and don't want to start messing up all kinds of settings that are needed. If anyone has any advice please let me know. This is what the scene is set up with:

1) Created a polygon plane that was converted to a soft body.
2) created springs for the soft body
3) created two polygon cubes with springs attached to the top particles of the plane.
4) Created a gravity field with an (attenuation value of 0.1)
attatched is the project file (incase anyone wants to mess with it)
any help would be great. I am at a road block. Thanks.

also here is a video clip of what is going on in the playback.

nevermind. I just tried the whole set up from scratch and it worked. (WTF?) It's these types of situations that drive me crazy. Moderator, please feel free to close this thread. Thanks.
