yeah a very quick test is to simply move the wall back (and leave the release frame at 1) and you’ll see the ball begin to move in a parabolic arc…ie. more natural than roboticly following the dummy.
So if you move the wall back further, then consider the factors:
- release frame
- speed/trajectory of the dummy at release frame
and if you even disable the wall altogether (just disable its massFX modifier)…sooner or later the pieces will come apart/tumble
If you need to change the release frame…DON’T do them individually on their modifier (hope you haven’t been doing this)…just select all of them, (easily at frame 0), then in the MassFX panel, on the 3rd tab, change them all at once (need to unbake any keys first)
