Hi everyone, I'm currently animating a bullet slamming through a glass object. When the pieces are all fractured and flying through the air, I want to freeze all of the pieces in place and fly the camera through them. Pretty simple I'm sure, but I'm a beginner :help:
Thanks everyone!

Animate the "Time Scale" value in the World tab of the Bullet settings.

Setting it to 0% will freeze time.

Would Timewarp be too crude? I know this test animation is :D

Select your camera, open the Motion Options panel, and choose Timewarp from the Add Modifier list. You can learn info about it in the Surfacing and Rendering dox.

Only run the simulation up to the frame you want the freeze to begin. :)
