Mathias Duch¨Animating objects effected by gravity.
by on Mar 7, 2012 at 9:08:14 am

Okay, first of all let me explain what i want to end up with:
I have a logo made entirely from letters, so its pure text.
I want to make an animaiton where they fall from the sky, scatter, and then they allmost magneticly moves back into place.
Ive made the "dropping from the sky" animation by make riged bodys and applying gravity to them, then i took a plane a moved it slowly with a bit of rotation to make them scatter on impact.
Now my question is, now that they are phsyical objects, i cant animate translatiion on them?
so is there a way to work around it, or should i animate the sky drop anitation by hand?

Here is a screenshot of my scene if it is any help!

thank you for your time!
