Hi,

yesternight I played quite a lot with a dynamics scene I have and I wonder what the workflow for tweaking dynamics is ?
I thought I could save dynamic settings, then tweak some more, and if I get confused I just load one of the settings I made and start over from there.
But hey, when I load a dynamics setting (*.txt file), suddenly all the
numeric inputs are greyed out !?
I understand that the text/mdd file is applied to the dynamics, but how the heck am I going to experiment and tweak if I can not change the settings after loading such a file !?

Thanks to anybody who shares his knowledge.

The possible reason that the boxes are greyed out could be that you have used "Save Motion" button under the File tab. Calculated motion has been baked to a .mdd file which is now used to deform the original object. If you want to further tweak cloth settings you have to press "Clear Motion" button under File tab. This will ungrey all the buttons.
