I am trying to get a bunch of objects resting on each other almost randomly in a bowl sort of like cereal. I have tried placing them randomly above the bowl and adding collisions and hardfx and trying to animate a fall into the bowl to achievd this look but it has not succeded(probably because of my lack of knowing how to accomplish this correctly). What would be the best way to do this without having any of the objects intersect/go through each other?

If each object is a individual object in layout, make sure they have collision and hardfx on each one. Then set them all to object advanced in the collision tab to prevent intersecting.

If they are individual peices of one object, then apply hardfx to them and look at the collision tab in the hardfx. A Self interaction tab should be there.

Ok thanks. I got it eventually. I didn't have the right settings under my collision tab. I forgot about that video. I think I remember watching it about a year and a half ago.
