Understanding the dynamics engine

The dynamics module in CINEMA 4D is part of the Studio bundle, and it allows CINEMA 4D to simulate the behavior of objects as if they were in the real world affected by gravity. Anytime you hear that word Simulate or Simulation, it means that the computer is trying to recreate behavior from the real world. Because of that recreation, the calculations that go on behind the scenes are incredibly complex. It also means that you lose a certain amount of control that you have over your scene. There's a lot of things that you can do with simulations that you can't do with keyframes, but you often lack the control that you have with keyframes.

It's a lot like trying to bowl a ball down the lane. You know you can throw the ball down the lane but you don't always know that you can hit those pins. And that's what the Dynamics Engine is like, it's just like bowling. So how does the Dynamics Engine work? Let's add a very simple cube to the scene. And at the heart of the Dyn...
