I am trying to control the playback speed of a rolling ball dynamically. The box next to the playback speed is usually an envelope, but this box does nothing but to reset the playback speed back to 100%.

Anyone know a way around this or any info on this?

My setup:
Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 2.4GHz
8GB DDR2 Memory
Windows Vista x64 Ultimate
LW 9.3.1 (Win64)

Use the MDDpointer node from here.

Try it with a .bdd file, as it's supposed to work with them, but I found I had to use an .mdd file created by scanning the hard object with ClothFX.

The MDDpointer is for node editing. Not sure how it applies to HardFX & Envelopes...

I am saving the file, but there is no envelope to adjust the speed dynamically.

I am playing with the ClothFX plugin, got a little bit of a learning curve on that one.

Thanks for the input, anyone else have a solution?

Ummm, yes, it's a node which allows you to use a saved bdd or mdd file and control its playback speed...
