Swinging Objects using Spline Dynamics

About This File

Here's a 14 minute video on how to use HAIR's excellent spline dynamics to make an object suspended by a spline fall and swing realistically. A bit of simple XPresso is used to help. Scene file included.

Thanks for this, it's exactly what i've been after. If you had multiple objects on strings how could you get them to collide with each other? As if they were conkers on strings knocking against each other? cheers

Hey everyone,

Thanks for this tutorial it's really great !

I'm actually turning it to a bunch of balloons attached by a string something ; it's working great, just can't find a way to add collisions betweens the objects. I'm new on mograph , it's probably easy...

Thanks for any help, i'd appreciate.

Tony

:signthankspin::thumbsup: Amazing for newbs like me.

Do you guys have any idea how to make it react with objects with dyamics? I'm trying to recreate a wrecking ball that shatters a wall. Thanks again

I have the same question pretty much. How do you keep the pyramid shape from going through the ground or make it collide with something. Anyone?

Thanks,

Brian
