do you have your entire character as the collision object???...because if you do, depending on the polygon count, this could be the problem....that is an awful lot of information for MD to calculate...it seems to be best to take a section of the character (the area that the kilt will come in contact with) copy and paste it into another layer, take it out of subatch mode, and give it a new name....when in Layout, hide it from the camera and parent it to the character. use this as your collision object for the kilt...this creates a much easier computation for MD to do, and will not slow it down so much....

I could be way off..but it sounds to me like this may help get motion designer to work...

it's doing something now, i think it's terrible slow but maybe that's motion designer. it has advanced to frame 2 and that's a miracle for me. it doesn't look wright but i will keep going on, thankx
