Hi, my first post here so forgive me if its in the wrong forum. Im trying to get effects applied to a rolling ball which smashes through some text, the text in turn is affected by the plane they are on (with gravity). the same kind of thing Mayas rigid/soft body dynamics would use.

I can basically do each to varying degrees of success but not them all combined in one scene. Should I be using FX or MD?
Im pretty new to lightwave and in the early learning stages. I gather that expressions are a good way to do this but I havent a clue when it comes to this.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

Love ya definition of simple ;)
Actually, there are a few tutorials describing more or less what you are after, try http://members.shaw.ca/lightwavetutorials/

You'll no doubt find something there, might also be worth searching the 'tips and tricks' forum, as well as the old LW forum 'www.newtek.com/discus'

Can anyone can chip in with a more direct link to a tut?
