is there any kind of hardbody tutorial for balls in a cup, or dice?
i have a cup with a few balls inside, i turn the cup over to spill the balls
and they just shoot out the sides or bottom of the cup. i have tried all kinds
of settings tweeking and jamming them from one exstream to the other and
just can't seem to get it right. some balls are not even near the sides of the cup, but in one frame movement they are out the side and away. i have subdivided all parts till my machine about dies, still nothing works.
any help would be great.

Hi there,

you might want to checkout the spinquad "dynamics" forum It has lots of examples and such.
