Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Physical Animation Character drops to ground

Hey community!

I wanted to try out some Physical Animation. I can move the arms and legs, it interacts with the enviroment. So yay! Unfortunatelly, it just drops to the ground after i press play, so its more like a dead fish simulator at the moment. Thank you for your time and help!!

I followed this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pG9SZQ0o7w

Thank you for your answear. But where exactly do you mean? It is turned off in the mesh itself.

Well the character can't stay upright if you simulate physics on its legs. It will topple itself because it won't be balanced.

I thought I already did that, and that is the core of my problem. :) In the video it somehow looks like the pelvis is "fixed". But mine somehow is not. I thought that would be achieved by applying physics only below pelvis. Here a screen of that: alt text

Redoing the whole thing from the beginning worked. Oldest trick in the book. Thank you again for your time!!!
