Animate a Soft body Object

Recommended Posts

Im trying to animate a rubber tire. I have a high Poly Tire model and a Low Poly cylinder cage. I have a mesh Deformer on the High Poly Tire deforming it based on the cage. When I run Softbody Dynamics it behaves properly. I want to have the wheel roll into the frame and then stop. with soft body deforming the tire as needed over the terrain it rolls over.. I cant seem to animate anything to change the position of the cage/ or models.


Hoping someone can help me figure out how to animate the wheel and have softbody do its thing


Here is a dropbox link to the current scene file . R21

What happens if you put the low res cage in a null and animate that instead ?
