Join Scott Pagano for an in-depth discussion in this video Tweak sim and constraint parameters, part of Houdini 15.5: Dynamics and Simulation.
- [Instructor] Now that we've added all of our geometry…into the simulation and done a lot of work…to make sure our collision geometry representation…was all done right, now we can get into…actually having this simulation do what we want it to do.…So everything up to this point was just…making everything work, making all they systems…talk to each other, but not really focus too much…on what the actual end result was or making this look good.…And one of the reasons we did all this work…was so that we can now do this work updating…the kind of art direction and the creative part…of the simulation and iterate a lot faster…because all this stuff is set up right.…
So let's go into our scene_sim.…There's a bunch of different settings we're going to change.…First off what we're going to do is we're going to…go into our solver and hit the p button.…And we haven't changed anything in the bullet solver so far,…we've just left this on all the default settings.…And the first thing I'm going to do is…I'm going to turn on the parallel constraint solver…
