Hi!

I’ve seen several videos with soft bouncing 3D models; cars, people, etc I’m trying with cloth but it turns into a flat mes when colliding. How can you turn a 3D object into a soft thick mesh to bounce?

Thanks!

Hi info,

Please use the Contact Us Button to change your avatar name. There are several “info” members now.

Here is an example

In a nutshell, take out all dampening, and make it relatively stiff.
I have also lowered the Gravity (Project Settings> Dynamics.

To see where I have changed values, call another object and place a Dynamic Tag. Select both Dynamic tags. The parameter that differs from the default will have a text entry instead of numbers.

All the best

Hi Dr.Sassi!

Thanks for your reply and sample! Now I use the tag with a human 3D model from the Asset browser -as it is- and play with stiff/damp but deforms in a weird shape. See capture enclosed. I’d like the model keep shape more or less.

By the way, can’t change the avatar¿? I contacted support about it.

Here there is a music video with the effect I’m looking for -seems made with C4D- However, don’t need so much deformation: https://vimeo.com/200658247

Hi Javier,

I would suggest doing it this way:

Create a low polygon dummy and work with that. Way more fun.

Then use the dummy as a cage in the Mesh Deformer.

Have fun.

That’s what I was looking for! I see a lot of possibilities! I want to apply that to any kind of model. Thanks a lot!👍🏾

Thanks for the feedback, Javier!

Sounds good.

I hope you have a great time with it.

The dummy is also easy to Weight with a Vertex map, so you can have parts react differently.

Enjoy.
