dangling rope/string?

Recommended Posts

There's a ton of different ways to do it. If you need the object to be 3 dimensional, then of course doing it in a 3d app would be the way to go. But I think tackling the problem of creating a physically accurate simulation is the wrong direction to take. Figure out how you want the letter to look as it dangles and go from there. Take a look at this tutorial for a starting point: Dynamic Cord

 

Otherwise, you're just going to need to sketch out what you want your motion to look like. It might help to find reference. In After Effects it's just a question of creating a stroke/spline and using warp or displacement on it to approximate how a rope might behave.

still same concept applies, unless you have like 300 letters dangling, you are better off animating it by hand, to get the prcise movement that you want. String dangling dynamics are a real mess for the most part.
