Yet another test of the dynamics engine in LightWave 8:

Throw some color on that ball so folks will know it rotates, too.

Yes, I had the same idea when the rendering was almost finished. I just didn't want to start over again.

I've been enjoying seeing your experiments, thanks for posting them. In this one it seems like the ball should accelerate more though?

That's a really neat test.
The spec on your tube makes it seem more like vinyl than glass though (that and the refraction, or lack of).

I did another animation where you can see the rotation. Have a look at the second animation in this thread:

Yah, Babee!!

That looks great. These 8 dynamics are amazingly easy and fun to work with, huh?

Well done. Purty.
