Lesson 11 | Dynamics
This lesson focuses on Rigid Body Dynamics. We will first explore the shelf tools which are a great way to quickly set up a dynamic simulation. We will then get a good understanding what is happening in the simulation at the dynamics and geometry level. We will then look at a couple of simple approaches to geometry destruction.The scene files for this lesson are available using the button at the top right just under the embedded video.
