Physics group settings

(Updated 05/13/2021)

This section explains in detail how to use the group setting function for physics operations and the information that is displayed.


What is a physics group setting?

The [Physics Group Settings] dialog allows you to add and rename physical operation groups,
rearrange the order in which physical operations are processed, and check cautionary information.


Physics Group Settings Dialog

Click the [Edit Group] button in the [PHYSICS/SCENE BLEND SETTINGS] dialog box.
The [PHYSICS GROUP SETTINGS] dialog box opens.

Number Name Detail
(1) Add Add a new group.
(2) Duplication Duplicates the selected group.
(3) Name change Rename the selected group.
(4) Raise the priority level Raises the priority of the selected group by one.
(5) Lower the priority level Lower the priority of the selected group by one.
(6) Delete Deletes the selected group.



Cautionary information displayed in the physics group settings

In the cautionary information, you can see what you should pay attention to regarding the input and output of physics operations.
Cells are highlighted in color and a message also appears in the lower right corner of the dialog.
This section describes the causes, problems and solutions when cautionary information is displayed.


Information displayed in blue

Information highlighted in blue is displayed when outputs are being made to the same parameter across different groups.
In this situation, the degree of influence should be set according to the order in which they are processed.
Note that the information in red has priority.

Setting the impact level considering the processing order

The influence used in the output is the influence on the parameter at the time it is processed.
For example, if you have two pre-processing elements, such as cursor tracking and two groups of physics operations, and you want them to affect each other equally,
the appropriate impact is 50 for the first physical operation A and 33 for the next physical operation B.

If the order is switched in this configuration, the final impact ratio will collapse and
Physics A would be 16.5% and Physics B would be 50%.

Check the influence of parameters on other groups when setting outputs

When setting the influence on the output side, you can check the tooltip display to see how it is handled by the other groups.
The group name and the value of the influence in the group are displayed, and the information about the group in operation is displayed in bold.



Information highlighted in red

Information highlighted in red is displayed when parameters handled in the input as a processing order are later encountered on the output side.
In this state, the output result is not transmitted to the input side.

When making corrections, adjust the order by raising or lowering the priority.
