Softimage Xsi: Soft body : initial force?

Posted: February 26, 2007

I'm experimenting and learning how to use soft bodies.

I am trying thing on a polymesh sphere.

I want my sphere to bounce on things :bounce: , that's why I need an initial force.

I have seen in the example soft body scene (the circus funny guy) that the initial force was a an obstacle that pushes the soft body character.

But is there a way I can animate the soft body object by keyframe instead of an obstacle'spropulsion then let it bonce on things? Anyone tried this? How does it work?

Thanks :scream:
