Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the rigid body types, part of Blender: Creating Rigid Body Simulations (2013).
And then with the hopefully copious notes we have…put together during the planning phase for our shot, we…are now ready to start putting all the necessary elements…in place so as to bring our simulation to life.…And the first thing we will need to tackle then is the…setup of all rigid body types that will be required by our simulation.…And as we have already determined that we only have one animated rigid…body to work with here, I think I'll make that my start point.…To do that, let's right click our box geometry, and then jump into the…Physics tab and create an active rigid…body by clicking on this Rigid Body button.…
Straight away, in the rigid body controls, we can put a check in the Animated option.…And, because we don't actually need to set any kind of mass…option for bot, its motion, of course, being controlled by the animation system.…We can actually set the rigid body type…to passive, if we want to.…And when ever we make changes to a simulation scene before…we go ahead, and move on to the next task, we…
